Eric Yoder’s ‘Walpurgis Night’ (2021): New Werewolf Horror To Bring Practical FX Gore

Two things always strike a chord on me when I hear them: werewolf films and practical effects. Both things are pure loves for me, so hearing about Eric Yoder’s film, Walpurgis Night, made me sit up straighter in my chair. What is this? Tell me more!


A wealthy couple, Imre and Justine, are visiting the deep forests of Romania and find themselves at the mercy of Waldemar Daninsky, the werewolf. The wolf terrorizes the countryside, killing anyone in its path. But Waldemar desperately seeks a cure to his lycanthropy. After a horrific tragedy strikes, Waldemar and Justine travel to London to seek the help from of Dr. Jekyll’s grandson. But when the full moon rises… The werewolf becomes loose in London!  Justine and Jekyll must quickly find a way to end this horrible curse.

Director Eric Yoder says:

“This film will be filled with horrifying gore, incredible special effects, and bring a sleek new look to the classic gothic monster movie!”

“There won’t be any CGI in this film… EVERY EFFECT WILL BE PRACTICAL!! This includes over FOUR transformation scenes: each more horrifying than the last!”
