Skinwalker: The Howl of the Rougarou (2021)

Small Town Monsters and director Seth Breedlove have made plenty of great films and series over the past few years — On the Trail of UFOs: Dark SkyOn the Trail of Bigfoot: The JourneyMOMO: The Missouri Monster, Terror in the Skies and On the Trail of Bigfoot — and now they’re giving us the first-ever look at what is often referred to as the Rougarou, which is a Cajun werewolf.

Literally any power you can imagine is given to this creature, which can do just about anything and be just about anyone. The mix of religion and the occult in the bayou really adds up to a potent blend of weirdness and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Sure, this creature may be a story told to keep children out of the forests after dark, but many around southern Louisiana — several in this film! — have no issues saying that they’ve encountered an actual howling werewolf.

A cannibal tribe of shapeshifters who retreated deep into the forests where they slowly lost touch with their humanity? Man, I’m so down for everything in this.

Skinwalker: The Howl of the Rougarou is available to purchase or rent on a number of platforms from 1091 Pictures, including iTunes, Amazon Prime Video, Vudu and FandangoNOW. Small Town Monsters will also release a special edition Blu-ray ($18.99) and DVD ($14.99) from their official store.
