Meet The Cajun Werewolf In “Skinwalker: The Howl of the Rougarou”

Friday, September 10, 2021 | Exclusives

“Do real werewolves exist? In the American south, legends tell of encounters with a creature that stalks the swamps and bayous. A creature who was here long before the immigrants who settled the region. An ancient evil called the Rougarou. Legends tell of a cannibal tribe of shapeshifters who retreated deep into the forests where they slowly lost touch with their humanity. A tribe who went on to become something far darker; a skinwalker. Now, nearly 400 years since the legend of the Rougarou first began to circulate, people are encountering the creature once again. The truth behind these vicious, horrifying brushes with the unknown will make your blood run cold. Does the Rougarou still stalk the swamps of southern Louisiana? The truth may surprise you…”

Director Seth Breedlove and Small Town Monsters‘ newest journey into the uncanny and unexplained collects witnesses and local experts to discuss the myth of the creature often referred to as the “Cajun Werewolf.” Check out the Rue Morgue exclusive clip below!

SKINWALKER: THE HOWL OF THE ROUGAROU will be available to purchase or rent on September 14th. Small Town Monsters will also release a special edition Blu-ray ($18.99) and DVD ($14.99) from their official store.
