Burrowers Gets Web-Based Prequel

Seven 3-5 minute webisodes based on writer-director JT Petty’s forthcoming horror film “The Burrowers” will premiere on the horror Web site/on-demand service FearNet in December says The Hollywood Reporter.

“Burrowers,” written and directed by Petty, chronicles the tale of a rescue party that becomes the prey of a band of underground creatures. Clancy Brown, William Mapother and Sean Patrick Thomas star in the Lionsgate release due in 2008.

The webisodes will tell the story of a family trying to survive in the wilderness who unknowingly release an evil force when they ingest infected deer meat.
