Film shot in SCV released to DVD

The film “Big Bad Wolf” has been released on DVD, announced Windchaser Pictures of Santa Clarita.

The horror film, originally titled “Huff,” was partially filmed locally in Santa Clarita. It was released theatrically exclusively for horror fans at regional genre conventions and film festivals, landing it as a Finalist in several festivals and was awarded Best Special Effects at Fright Night Film Fest.

The controversial film, however, was banned by one international film festival after initially having been selected as a finalist by judges.

The story weaves together themes of abuse, incest, drugs, and rage-induced mutilations and murders in what proves to be an unsettling look at the evolution of a depraved serial killer.

In a surprising departure from his all-American image, former “Bachelor” Charlie O’Connell plays a demented predator who tracks down three teenage runaways in a mind-bending adaptation of “The Three Little Pigs.”

It also features actor Clint Howard, brother of director Ron Howard, as an unwitting accomplice to a particularly savage murder.

The movie was a project initially funded with $50,000 by Windchaser Pictures, in its first foray into the independent film industry.

In an interview with The Signal in 2012 while filming the movie, Clint Howard said working on low-budget films allows him to stretch as an actor.

Howard has also worked in Santa Clarita several times before, he said. And being on a film set in only a 30 minute drive from his San Fernando Valley home allows him to focus on his acting.

“I’m able to do things that I might be more fearful to do on a big-budget film,” Howard said at the time. “I can experiment more when there’s less pressure.”
