Any time we get news that Bill Oberst, Jr., is in a new movie, we jump all over it; and once again that time has come as both Oberst and Melissa Carnell have joined the cast of Ruthless Pictures’ Werewolf Rises.
From the Press Release
Bill Oberst, Jr., has joined the cast of Ruthless Pictures’ Werewolf Rises. The film, written and directed by BC Furtney, tells the story of Emma, a small town girl who returns to her childhood home deep in the Arkansas mountains only to encounter a sinister underworld that most never knew existed, one populated by bloodthirsty werewolves.
Of his role in the film, Oberst says, "Since the days of Forrest J Ackerman's Famous Monsters, I've longed to play classic monster roles like Chaney's Wolf Man and Karloff's Monster. With Werewolf Rises, Jesse Baget and BC Furtney are giving me a chance to check one of those off my list. »

Don is a once successful screenwriter reeling from the murder of his fiancé. He finds new purpose when he turns to torture and murder. The combination proves to be highly enjoyable for Don and fuels his cravings for revenge against his fiancé’s death.
Do Not Disturb was in the can for a couple of years prior to making its way to DVD and it’s easy to see why it didn’t find distribution right away. The film was written and directed by B.C. Furtney. Unfortunately for the viewing audience, Furtney’s film does not succeed on any level. Everything from the script to the performances falls completely flat.
The film has no redeeming entertainment value; it isn’t enjoyable, it isn’t enlightening, it’s just mind-numbingly dull. Watching it made me feel like an unwilling participant in someone else’s extremely depressing crack-induced nightmare.
