A film which truly justifies the term “unclassifiable,” WINTERBEAST was shot on and off for nearly half a decade and with a mix of super 8mm and 16mm, resulting in a one of a kind piece of outsider art-horror filmmaking that must be seen to be believed. When The Wild Goose Lodge is overrun with mutilation-minded beastoids, it's up to Sergeant Whitman and Forest Ranger Stillman to take care of business! But what about the creepiest lodge proprietor who ever creeped around in a plaid suit, Mr. Sheldon? And what about Whitman's shape-shifting mustache?! Loaded with surreal dialogue, mind-blowing stop motion animation, homemade gore effects, and more than a few genuinely creepy moments, this forgotten cult gem to has been newly restored and reconstructed from it’s original film elements.
