The “whodunit” facet of Legacy helps reshape the brutal visage of Red Riding Hood into the modern day. Lacing throughout this vicious mystery are secrets, a sense of duty, and the spice of betrayal demanding sacrifice and change.
The life of unsuspecting pregnant workaholic and afraid to fail Rebecca “Rose” Healy starts to unravel ferociously when unknown creatures savagely murder two friends. Rose’s life completely derails as she accidentally witnesses her father killed by a werewolf that has set a trap for him and his team, and she loses her baby. The family secret of werewolf hunting kept from her on the wishes of her dead mother is now out.
With many bloody clues left behind the authorities hone in on Rose, her aunt and the butler. The hunters have become the hunted. Rose’s aunt suspects a werewolf has infiltrated their ranks. Rose’s strong-willed aunt uses her sense of duty, family obligation and Rose’s fear of failure and disappointment to manipulate Rose into the family business. While Rose vigorously trains, and the family desperately try to identify the spy authorities grow more suspicious of their involvement in the gruesome murders.
As authorities close in, the family finds evidence against someone close to them and the final battle reveals a betrayal and the darkest secret of all forcing a gut wrenching choice.

My love of horror and science fiction in both the written word and movie began with my mother who loved them as well. It was instilled in my fragile psyche at the tender of five although, I did not know it at the time. She took me in our Black Ford Fairlane to see Romero’s Night of the Living Dead at the local drive-in.

It wasn’t long that I became a fan of Hammer Studios and actors like Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Vincent Price and the lists could go on. Suffice to say, I was hooked.
