Check This Out: Teaser Poster for Sxv'leithan Essex's Growl
Whoa, I don't know what this is for, but it looks awesome. ShockTillYouDrop has debuted an early teaser poster for a new horror film called Growl that is being written and directed by Sxv'leithan Essex. If you don't know, Essex is a talented music video director and writer who is making his feature directing debut on this. I also found a second early sales poster on his MySpace which I've included below. In addition to Essex, producer Lee Cleary (X-Men: The Last Stand, Rise of the Silver Surfer, The A-Team) has jumped on-board to shepherd the project. Shooting will start in 2010 for an expected release in 2011. Check ’em out below!
Here's the first synopsis for Growl: "A traveling underground fight club called The Brawlers arrive at a derelict ghost town tucked away in the Colorado Rockies. They meet the town's only residents, the Maxilla family who want to buy on to the fight card. But the Maxilla family's true intentions for the Brawler crew is soon revealed in teeth and claws. Some will be hunted, some will be feed, and some will become part of the family… whether they like it or not." Sounds pretty cool. Essex has some experience with MMA in a music video made for Five Finger Death Punch. Early casting buzz is that Kiefer Sutherland might star. Cool?

That's one interesting name: Sxv'leithan Essex. I like the first poster. The coloring of "Growl" in the second doesn't look so hawt to me. The movie sounds cool, interested in hearing more.

100% no to Sutherland. He can kill any horror movie buzz quicker than Stephen Dorff. Good Werewolf movies are long overdue. Last decent effort was DOG SOLDIERS. This does sound very cool though.

Hey #5 - let me guess, you're one of those Emo noobs who thought "CURSED" was a great Werewolf movie. ROFLMAO!!!!

Sounds like a 'Werewolf: The Apocalypse' campaign setting 🙂 Was a fun game, hehe, "Sxv'leithan Essex" must have played it as a kid http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Werewolf:_The_Apocalypse

Can't wait to see a trailer for this. The posters don't really do anything for me.

Did I just see some douchbag use the term Emo noob on here? I'm leaving... BTW watched Dog Soldiers last night and that movie is awesome...

That actor/model kinda looks like Girard Butler. They should have gotten him to star.

Is that Phil Baroni?????

Gee.... that's all Sutherland needs to do.. waste his talent on another crap horror film... If he's considering this, a guy who wins Emmys ought to get himself some sense and a better manager.

#5 Dog soldiers still remains one of my all time fav wereolf movies.. I have a feeling you aren't british and didnt get the relevance of the comical side of its context. Not saying others wont get it who aren't british, its just more apparent to us. 🙂

I've been loking everywhere for where Baroni was cast and found out that another site just found an old poster concept for the film on the director's MySpace Page. The poster on the left is the REAL OFFICIAL poster. There's no mention of Baroni anywhere about this movie and for the record... that doesn't look like Baroni... the guys too thin! I hope hope hope this movie rocks and someone does it right for a change. The director's video for way of the fist is pretty sick... but then again... it's just a video.

Looks good. Sutherland would be killer in this. He always adds a bit of seriousness to a movie.
