RAISED BY WOLVES was created by ‘’The Butcher Brothers,’ the filmmaking alter-egos of directors Mitchell Altieri and Phil Flores. Together, this dynamic duo has developed a strong following, creating a series of great thrillers, including their first feature film The Hamiltons, the mysterious story of four young adult siblings who try to fend for themselves after the mysterious death of their parents. It was the co-winner of the Gold Vision Award of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival and the Jury Prize at the Malibu International Film Festival, before releasing theatrically by Lionsgate. Influenced by film greats including Tobe Hooper, David Cronenberg and David Lynch.
The Butcher Brothers projects also include The Violent Kind, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival; The Hamiltons sequel, The Thompsons (also for Lionsgate) and Holy Ghost People, which made its premiere at SXSW. The Butcher Brothers most recent projects include A Beginner’s Guide to Snuff (winner of ‘FearNYC’) which will be released in theatres later this summer and The Night Watchmen, which was recently honored as ‘Best Feature’ at Atlanta’s Buried Alive Film Fest as it makes it’s away around the world on the film festival circuit.
In the summer of 1973, dozens of teenagers were lured to a remote plantation by a charismatic cult leader and brainwashed into attacking anyone outside their group. What followed was a killing spree of unimaginable brutality.
The horrendous crimes were covered up and the only survivor locked away. The secrets of the Plainsong Massacre remained hidden…until now. Seven teenagers — looking for a place to skateboard, drink bear and raise hell – drive a stolen truck to the long abandoned plantation.
The high-spirited teens initially laugh off the blood-stained walls and mysterious symbols but, with night falling, it becomes clear they are being stalked by a force of pure evil and limitless power. As the childhood friends fight for survival, they discover the horrific truth about the massacre, and Mikey’s footage builds to a final confrontation that echoes all our nightmares.
RAISED BY WOLVES, an edge-of-your seat, blood-splattered horror adventure from The Butcher Brothers, directed by Mitchell Altieri. Starring a host of millennial favorites including Evan Crooks, Jenna Haze and Monty Greer.
