While filming a scene of Bonehill Road (2017) in the bathroom Todd Sheets (I) leaned back to far towards some candles and caught his hair on fire. He was so focused with the camera, as well as some others for an effect, for the shot he didn't realize. See more »
Sheets' story is a pretty hefty dose of humanizing, hard luck horror and full on creature feature nightmare. The mother - daughter duo endure a double dose of torment and abuse on one really bad day! The complexity Todd Sheets tackles, in depth and darkness, is ambitious. The start is a little taxing in deluvery, based on acting and dialog. But don't be fooled, "Bonehill Road" goes from 0 to 60 within minutes. Even the level of acting and dialog picks up.
The characters are recognizable and offer a contemporary element that elevates the new-classic monster movie premise, exposing the dark underbelly of human cruelty, shown through aspects of domestic violence - abuse of women - dangers of very real predators. All this weaved within a setup horror tale with some epic looking werewolves. Other than a few moments of over-emoting, the drama and action is methodic and even, giving "Bonehill Road" a consistent flow from beginning to theatrical end.
Creature design and practical effects are king here, and for a low budget indie film, very good. No CGI, full bodied "Howling / Dog Soldiers" styled werewolves, plenty of blood and gore and one pretty cool transformation sequence give "Bonehill Road" a status unequaled by most low budget horror attempts, and put it up there with some of the finest indie werewolf movies of all time. Add to that creepy atmosphere, quality music score and this one is a must see slice of horror.
