the teaser of the upcoming film Le poil de la bête. Now, the full-length trailer of this film directed by Philippe Gagnon has surfaced online.
The story, which was penned by Stéphane J. Bureau and Pierre Daudelin, takes place in 1665 in New France at a time when a part of Canada was colonialized by France. Joseph Côté (Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge) escapes from a prison in order to avoid death by hanging. Moreover, while some colonial soldiers are chasing him, Joseph takes the identity of a jesuit and hides in the seigneury of Beaufort where most men are waiting for "daughhters of the king"(French women who were sent to Canada in order to find a husband).
At night, Joseph finds out that there are werewolves that terrorize the village. Besides, things get complicated when he falls in love with Marie Labotte (Viviane Audet), a "daughter of the king" that no one wants to marry. All in all, by simply trying to protect his life and Marie's, Joseph will end up fighting against the werewolves.
The film also stars Antoine Bertrand, Patrice Robitaille, Marc Beaupré, Martin Dubreuil, Marie-Chantal Perron, Mirianne Brûlé, Gilles Renaud, Gilles Renaud, Sébastien Huberdeau, Michel Barette, Marie-Thérèse Fortin, Patrick Drolet and Benoît McGinnis.
