Bonehill Road

release year: 2017
genre: horror/drama
viewing setting: home DVD, 3/25/20

synopsis: A mom and daughter on the run break down in the middle of nowhere and must deal with a psychotic murderer as well as werewolves.

impressions: It was vaguely entertaining, but a bit slow and plodding at times. A lot of attention was given to developing the backstories of the mom and daughter, and a lot of attention was also given to the various misdeeds of the psychopath. This meant that there was no time for answering questions like "how did the psycho just happen to be at the house they found?" or "how did the father just happen to pull up at that same house later, in the middle of nowhere?" or "why were there werewolves running around in the first place?"

acting: Eli DeGeer is the mother, Ana Rojas-Plumberg is the daughter, Linnea Quigley and Millie Milan and Dilynn Fawn Harvey are victims. Douglass Epps is the lunatic.

final word: This was a weird but marginally watchable mix of a slasher movie and a werewolf movie.
