Hyenas in America
Hyenas is a 2011 supernatural action horror about a pack or clan of humans who shape shift into hyenas.
The film is written and directed by Eric Weston, stars Costas Mandylor, Christa Campbell and Meshach Taylor and was distributed by Grindstone Entertainment Group.
The film begins with Gannon’s (Mandylor) wife being attacked by the hyenas. However, before finishing their meal, they are interrupted and leave a carcass which is later discovered by a couple of locals.
The film then skips forward to a man sitting by the fire known as Crazy Biggs (Taylor) who explains what we have witnessed and what these creatures were. He then explains how he recruited Gannon and the story continues from there.
In almost all folklore there are elements of mythical creatures, half human and half animal like the werewolf.
In the same fashion, this film is based on legends from all over Africa about the hyena would probably make a great horror film if everything else was good. However, on the bright side, we get to see Christa Campbell naked.
Anyway, if you are tired of watching the same old vampire and werewolf tales then try something new and have a peek at this film.
