Werewolves And Haunted Houses: Starbuck, You Deserve Better Than This

Oh Katee Sackhoff. We all want such good things for you. You’re pretty and seem quite charming and yet, you can be impressively badass. You kicked our collective asses in “Battlestar Galactica,” even when the show was taking a turn into crazytown. You were the only remotely interesting part of that hideous “Bionic Woman” remake (yes, I watched it. Don’t you dare judge me). You’re like Summer Glau — you just seemed destined for mediocrity after your shot at greatness.

Sackhoff has a couple of projects coming up, for those who are curious (and of course you should be). First is A Haunting In Georgia, which is not the Southern-set sequel to The Haunting In Connecticut. There’s not much info available for it, and IMDB has this as the synopsis: In the rural South, a young family is terrorized by supernatural entities in their home.

Oh, what the crap. Not exactly bursting with originality, is it. It also stars Chad Michael Murray, who is like a cinematic kiss of death. This is truly unfortunate, I must say. The film is set to appear in Best Buy bins some time this year.

Next up, she’ll be film Growl, which she herself has described as “like An American Werewolf In Paris meets Fight Club.” Now, because we love you, we’re going to forgive the fact that you used the shitty Parisian sequel as your example. That said, if it can escape its SyFy-sounding description, the film maybe possibly potentially hopefully please God please might have promise.

The fellows at Bloody Disgusting spoke to Sackhoff recently, and they say that she “plays Camden, the fight promoter for a traveling fight club who arrive in a ghost town tucked away in the Colorado Rockies. The only residents in town are the Maxilla family, who buy their way on to the fight card and soon reveal they’re packing more than a mean right hook. They’re werewolves and the fate of the fight club members varies between being eaten, killed or recruited to the family.”

Erm. OK. Look, a poster!


The film is directed by Sxy’leithan Essex. I do not know if that’s his real name, but this is him:


So, there’s that.

Oh, Katee.
