The Beast of Bray Road 2005

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

The Beast of Bray Road is a 2005 American horror film distributed by The Asylum, one of the first distributed by that company. It is somewhat based on the Wisconsin cryptozoological legend the Beast of Bray Road[1], but the film depicts a more violent creature than the one of legend. [2] Unlike many of the later releases by The Asylum, this film is not a mockbuster.


A series of violent murders occur in and around a small town in Wisconsin, the first of which occurs at a local bar owned by Kelly. As the number of missing and presumed dead climbs, several people claim to have seen a big hairy beast, which local legend holds has lives in the area. Initially, it appears that the Loubes brothers are responsible for the attacks. Meanwhile, certain unbelieving townspeople are looking to play up the whole “Beast of Bray Road” story in order to increase local tourism unaware that there really is a rampaging monster stalking the night.

However, the town's new sheriff, Phil Jenkins, with a cryptozoologist, Quinn McKenzie who learned of the attacks on line, investigate the grisly deaths and McKenzie eventually determined that the killer was a werewolf. (The DNA of the creature recovered after an attack contains both wolf and human DNA.) After McKenzie is attacked by the creature, the Sheriff tracts it down, killing it using several silver tipped bullets.[3]
