About the Movie
Blind war veteran Ambrose McKinley (Nick Damici, Stake Land) has recently moved to Crescent Bay, a seemingly peaceful community on the outskirts of a dense forest. On his first night in his new home, McKinley hears his elderly neighbor attacked by something he’s convinced isn’t human. When the creature then kills his seeing eye dog, McKinley’s thirst for justice turns into a one-man vendetta against the monster that’s terrorizing his neighborhood. And when he’s stonewalled by both the police and his fellow residents, he decides to gear up and prepare to fight the beast one-on-one. Now it’s man vs myth as McKinley readies himself for what could be his final battle. With a stunning lead performance from Damici as the take-no-prisoners McKinley and jaw-dropping practical special effects, director Adrian Garcia Bogliano’s LATE PHASES is a suspense thrill ride unlike any other.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A sprightly horror movie about finding new purpose for old bones.
Fresh: Less ambitious but more satisfyingly resolved than Bogliano's last effort, Here Comes the Devil, Late Phases is a reminder of how much monster movies rely on what happens when the monster's not on screen.
Fresh: The narrative ends up working in a smaller scope than one might expect given the premise of a beast plaguing a community, but the journey getting to the finish is exhilarating all the same.
Rotten: Damici gives his memorable protagonist enough life to hold it together more often than it would have otherwise. He's great here. The movie around him, not so much.
If you are using the free music that comes with final cut pro, and the amazingly talented Tom Noonan in your movie at the same time, you are going to look silly. If you can’t keep the supporting cast from miming in the background as the principal characters walk past, you should either a) practice making movies without charging people you will disappoint, or b) raise money for a more talented person to make a movie.
From a Werewolf Fan
An unlikely hero faces insurmountable odds in this werewolf thriller. I took a risk and bought this movie for my collection, and was not disappointed. The werewolves might not have been the best I have ever seen, but they looked great for this indie film. The real hero of the story is Nick Dimici as Ambrose, the bitter but lovable old Vietnam veteran who still has some fight in him.
Starts out great then turns horrible
This movie started out really good, after about 20 minutes it is boring, very boring. Tina Loiuse from Gilligan's Island is in it. The wolf looks great but, for me, a big let down.
