Produced by Jesse Baget and written and directed by BC Furtney, Ruthless Pictures’ Werewolf Rises stars Melissa Carnell (Boggy Creek), Bill Oberst Jr. (Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies), Matt Copko and Brian Berry (Peter Rottentail), and revolves around the character of Emma (Carnell), who after leaving for the big city returns years later (and with big problems) to her childhood home deep in the Arkansas mountains for some well needed rest, relaxation, and soul searching, only to find that her challenges have compounded. A bloodthirsty werewolf emerges from the woods to lay siege to the area, ravaging anything in its path, and revealing a sinister underworld that most never knew existed. With a full moon hanging over the area, Emma is plunged into a fight not only for her life, but for her very soul. Furtney talked to Fearnet about the film, which was filmed over the course of thirteen days last December. »

The captive lycan, in human form, turns Laney’s life upside-down, forcing him to confront his haunted past and race against the clock—because the wolf will return, and Laney’s son’s condition continues to worsen. »

Star Laura Vandervoort really does know martial arts.
Vandervoort elaborates: I grew up doing martial arts. So Elena feels like the other part of me. I relate to so much about her. Obviously not the werewolf part, but the fact that she can take care of herself physically... the writers [even] wrote in some extra hand-to-hand combat scenes. And especially in the finale -- we have this epic fight that I just had a great time doing. We had great stunt coordinators that help us incorporate the animalistic side to the fighting. It wasn't a part of the audition, but I think »
