The Reaper Brothers

With their crops and people dying, a small village has no choice but to hire the Reaper Brothers, a trio of eccentric exterminators, to eliminate a vicious, mystical creature tormenting the lands.

A “Northwest Digital” FILM
WRITTEN BY Louis Mendiola and Gareth Van Niekerk

The rivers have run dry. The crops are dying. People have gone missing. The remaining villagers of Spearhead have grown weary and tired. Something outside the village, deep within the surrounding forest, is destroying the village. Fed up, the village sends out a hunting party to destroy the wicked entity.

When the village’s hunt ends in a bloody massacre, the sole survivor, a young woman in a dirty, red cloak, reveals the source of the village’s woes: a vicious, evil creature that is half wolf, half man. This “Wolfman” swiftly ripped apart the town’s best hunters.

Left without options, the mayor hires the Reaper brothers (Jacob, Christian, and Hans), a trio of eccentric exterminators, to exterminate the deadly Wolfman. Although new to the exterminating business (this is their second job; their first “mission” was chasing out ghosts from a mansion), the Reaper brothers promise to eliminate the Wolfman. Or the village will get 50% of their deposit back.

Rounding up a few hesitant villagers, the Reaper brothers set off into the dark forest to destroy the Wolfman. Although highly prepared, the Reapers and their hunting party eventually encounter a frightening force. A force not from this world.

But is the Wolfman the one destroying Spearhead? Or is it the young woman in the dirty red cloak, who inexplicably returns back into the dangerous forest? Who, or what, is trying to obliterate Spearhead?
