From indie filmmaker Chris Alexander (BLOOD FOR IRINA, QUEEN OF BLOOD) comes FEMALE WEREWOLF, an intimate psychodrama about one women's search for sex and sanity. "She" (Carrie Gemmell) is a girl in the grip of a waking fever dream, slave to erotic, bloody fantasies that are slowly seeping into the grind of her sterile reality. As her sexual tensions and anxieties spiral, she slips into madness, believing that she might be turning into a monster. Featuring a mesmerizing, near mute performance by Gemmell, FEMALE WEREWOLF is a surreal experimental horror film, shot entirely by Alexander on a series of iPhones and featuring a moody score by Alexander and The Gotham City Drug Store.
Reviews

“Chris Alexander’s Female Werewolf is an interesting hybrid of experimental and avantgarde, shot on iPhones in a bleak Canadian landscape. Beautifully composed frames and use of colors that pop onscreen in a slow burn…it reminds me of Cronenberg’s Shivers without the whacked-out creature that crawls in people’s mouths, but instead he creates a mood with a wonderfully eerie score and no dialogue to set the mood. Alexander picks it up where Cronenberg left off. Female Werewolf plays with your head…” – Jackie Kong (director of: The Being, Blood Diner, Night Patrol).

“The film is done as a very surreal arthouse. Featuring only 3 characters, no dialogue, and some serious trippy sequences, I can honestly say that this is definitely now on my list for must watch films. Female Werewolf is not entertainment so much as it is a work of beauty and art. Despite the sexually-charged plot, this is not smut in any regard. All shots are done tastefully, with no more skin than is needed to advance the plot.What you will see is a fair amount of blood, however, as this woman slowly spirals and her illness externalizes. If you enjoy films like Phil Steven’s Flowers this is one you will definitely have to check out.” The Blood Shed

“Driven by obsessive imagery, sensuality and music, favoring beauty and emotion over graphic gore and shock but still filled with darkness and dread. Clearly, the influence of early Polanski and the lesser-known Rino Di Silvestro’s Legend of the Werewolf Woman is in evidence…but, it’s definitely got its own unique vibe… beautifully shot and edited very artistically, complete with a hypnotic score.” – Dread Central

“…a very visual, very experiential film…going to appeal to genre nerds of a very specific type, especially those with a soft spot in their hearts for the films of Jean Rollin and Jess Franco.” – DVD Talk

“A sexually charged art house film.”The Blood Shed
