THE DEN MOTHER
THE QUEEN BITCH
Like all good scary stories, you need a really good monster at the end. Similar in spirit to films such as Jaws, The Edge, Aliens or Moby Dick, The Den Mother is the ultimate beast, our resident queen bitch that has been poisoned and abused over a majority of her unusually-long life. When Laura accidentally stumbles into her cave, she's forced to temporarily take one of her cherished cubs hostage to allow her and Thomas to escape with their lives. It's a costly choice that sets in motion a vendetta that will carry through until the very end, culminating in the ultimate showdown.
