Check out the new trailer for creature horror “The Rugaru”. The film stars Joe Estevez, Randall Oliver, Christopher Severio, Amye Gousset, Krystal Tomlin, Robert Douthat and Brittany Merrett. “Rugaru” was written and directed by Tom Severio. The story follows the old lore of the wild man (The Wendigo). The creature or spirit could either possess humans or be a monster that had physically transformed from a person. It is particularly associated with cannibalism. The Algonquian believed those who indulged in eating human flesh were at particular risk; the legend appears to have reinforced the practice of cannibalism as a taboo.
