‘The Wolf Of Snow Hollow’ Trailer: Jim Cummings’ ‘Thunder Road’ Followup Features Robert Forster’s Final Performance

In 2018, Jim Cummings dropped his dark comedy Thunder Road on an unsuspecting SXSW audience, earning a Grand Jury award in the process. Cummings, wrote, directed, and starred in the micro-budgeted film about a troubled cop juggling a lot of really explosive personal issues. Now Cummings is back with his followup, The Wolf of Snow Hollow, which features the final performance by the late Robert Forster who passed away last year.

Cummings is back pulling triple duty, playing a troubled cop struggling with alcohol, a divorce, a rebellious daughter, and the possibility of werewolves stalking the people of his town…

“The movie is about this recovering alcoholic who is the son of the sheriff at a sheriff’s department in Utah,” Cummings tells EW. “He is just a complete bulldozer and asshole and doesn’t listen to the people around him. That’s how we introduce the guy. He’s at AA and he sounds like a murderer. He talks about driving a forklift through his ex-wife’s house.”

“He starts to believe that there is a serial killer in town and everybody else starts to believe that there’s a werewolf,” Cummings continues. “He has to convince everybody in his circle that there’s no such thing as werewolves, which is something that he thinks should have gone without saying. And it becomes progressively more intense.”

The cast includes Riki Lindhome and Jimmy Tatro, but it’s the presence of Forster that may bring a tear to the eyes of viewers who are getting their last new performance from the late actor…

“Robert was like the last cowboy, it kind of felt like on set,” says Cummings. “He was great, man. He was just so authentic. He saw my first movie and was like, ‘This kid is great, I’m going to work with this dude.’ He just kept on championing me.

The Wolf of Snow Hollow hits theaters and VOD on October 9th.

SYNOPSIS: A small-town sheriff, struggling with a failed marriage, a rebellious daughter, and a lackluster department, is tasked with solving a series of brutal murders that are occurring on the full moon. As he’s consumed by the hunt for the killer, he struggles to remind himself that there’s no such thing as werewolves…
