With the newly-minted SpectreVision, Elijah Wood, Daniel Noah and Josh C. Waller, are embarking on a number of genre projects. Cooties recently wrapped shooting (a film we were on the set of). Now comes word of Bad Vibes, a “werewolf tale set in the psychedelic ’60s music scene.”
An American Werewolf in London‘s John Landis will come aboard to executive produce. (It looks Landis has become the godfather of werewolf movies just like everyone turns to ol’ George Romero for zombie-fueled support.)
The film will be directed by Dave Gebroe (Zombie Honeymoon) from his original screenplay.
Based on the impressive slate of genre films that Elijah Wood and SpectreVision are producing, I am very excited that Dave Gebroes clever and scary Bad Vibes has found the perfect home, says Landis.
Bad Vibes is set in the psychedelic rock scene of the late 60s, where Sunrise Majesty is at the top of the charts with their message of free love for all. But after an encounter with a strange groupie, bandleader and mastermind Max Cassidy is left with a gift that cant be cured with a shot of penicillin. Max has been touched with the curse of the werewolf, transforming him into a dark and brooding nihilist whose new sound is almost as disturbing as his new plan: to hold a huge love-in at the bands ranch where he and the group will infect all their fans, unless Cynthia, Maxs girlfriend and the last untouched member of the band, can stop them.
Avant-Garde rock musician Ariel Pink will compose original music for Bad Vibes. This will be his first foray into the world of film for the musician.
The script totally blew me away with its horrifying revisionist take on the Sixties, says Pink. Its like a bizarro-world chronology of free love, dark psychedelic music and permissiveness gone hog-wild. My fans will get to hear a side of Ariel Pinks Haunted Graffiti that no ones ever heard before, and that couldnt be more inspiring to me creatively.
