In the middle of Nebraska there’s a tiny town called Cherry about 45 minutes from the nearest Walmart. Cherry has a bar, a service station, and a couple of churches. It also has a pack of werewolves.
Dave Rhodes and his werewolf friends don’t worry about the full moon. They learned from their fathers and their fathers before them to get together once in a while, inquire about each other’s “wolf levels,” and, when the levels are high enough, to head out into the woods where they turn into wolves and run all night, hunting down rabbits and deer. In this way, for hundreds of years, the Cherry Pack has kept their secret close and their urges in check. They’re contributing members of the community, teachers, mechanics, gardeners. Good neighbors.
But it only takes one lapse of judgement to bring the whole pack down. When one member kills a woman and the pack takes justice into its own hands, those two violent deaths bring three strangers into town; a representative from a world-wide organization of werewolves; a corporate maniac looking to capture a werewolf for scientific research; and a new sheriff, hoping for a reprieve from big city policing.
Now Dave and the pack have to decide whether to make a run for it, leaving their neighbors at the mercy of a murderous corporation, or to stay and fight, protecting their way of life and the town they love.
Pack is a fun new take on the werewolf genre, ignoring traditional horror conventions to tell a story of family dramas and small town loyalty.
