werewolf, werewolves and lycans

Review: BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

I know this movie came out a month-and-a-half ago. I’ve just been really busy the past few weeks. I only had the chance to go see the movie over this past weekend. Honestly I doubt you all need a review, anyway—but such has never stopped me before from sharing my views and opinions with the…

Update on the PENNY DREADFUL Comic

I live about an hour away from my comic shop of choice. There are shops closer to where I live, but this one is owned by a friend of mine, so I give them my business. Because of the distance, it isn’t always convenient for me to swing by the store to pick up my…

Werewolf Smartphone

I only recently got a Smartphone. Like, a few months ago. I always said I didn’t have the patience to own one, that I’d end up throwing it across the room, thus shattering it and negating the desired effects of owning one in the first place. I clung to my outdated little flip-phone as to…

The Monkey-girl and the Monkey Guardian Angels

It’s monkey week here at werewolves.com, apparently. I didn’t know. I sure didn’t plan it that way. But the Internet gods this week have gifted me with not one, not two, but THREE articles to make use of for source material, all having to do with monkeys. Elsewhere I reported on the confusion some monkeys…

Stone Tools Not Tools At All?

Here’s the problem: Flint flakes have long been taken as evidence that our prehistoric ancestors knew how to use tools. Way back, when we (“we” being humans) were still more animal than otherwise, it seemed that our hirsute forbears had mastered the use of razor-sharp stone flakes to butcher animals—and each other. But modern-day monkeys…

The Hall of Shadows

This would be heaven for me. Literally heaven. Unfortunately it’s in southern California, which means I won’t be getting there this year. To paraphrase Portia/Balthazar from THE MERCHANT OF VENICE: “…in the course of justice, none of us should attain heaven: we do pray for free travel vouchers…” OR an overly-generous fan who wants to…

Werewolf Coffee

“Even a man who is pure of heart, and says his prayers by night, may become a wolf when the coffee is brewed and the moon is shining bright!” In West Town, Chicago there’s a new stationary and mobile coffee company operating part-time out of a truck. A refurbished Wonder Bread truck, to be exact,…

Falsely Accused of Cannibalism

There’s no point in denying there is blatant racism at the root of this. It’s also a textbook example of xenophobia, literally “fear of the stranger.” A mob in, or near, New Delhi, India attacked a group of Nigerian students after an Indian teen died from a drug overdose. The teen was apparently missing for…

War for the Planet of the Apes

Can they keep it up? (That’s what she said? And I’m giving myself a self-high five for working in my SECOND “That’s what she said” joke this week!) The first two PLANET OF THE APES prequels were consistently excellent. Can they keep the standard of quality at that level? I sure hope so. From what…

More Thylacines

The problem is not that supposedly extinct Thylacines are being spotted in Australia. That would be great news, as it would suggest that the animal is NOT extinct after all. The problem is, if the animal HAS survived into the present, it shouldn’t be being sighted in Australia. It’s indigenous to Tasmania, or was, hence…

BIGFOOT VS. ZOMBIES

Can’t judge a book by its cover? Balderdash! Sometimes you can, and sometimes you can judge a movie by its title. Case in point, I don’t need to know anything else about this particular film, BIGFOOT VS. ZOMBIES, to know that I want to see it. There are maybe some caveats. Like, if I saw…

The Rondo Hatton Awards

I received this year’s ballot for the annual Rondo Hatton awards (If you don’t know who Rondo was, google him but don’t tell anybody, lest you want to look like a stoopie.) and I figured, as it is an open forum, I’d help ‘em out by publicizing it for ‘em, also figuring they wouldn’t mind…

Bigfoot Causes Car Wreck

Short of a polygraph test, there’s no way to be sure. And even then, polygraph machines aren’t 100% accurate; then there’s the scenario in which the witness hallucinates, firmly believing what she saw was real even if it wasn’t; a lie detector test couldn’t rule that out. Short of physical evidence, of which there wasn’t…

Buy a Ticket, get a Barf Bag

William Castle is one of my creative heroes, second only to Ed Wood as an inspiration for me. (I work in show biz, too, remember, when I’m not hard at work reporting on all things fortean and lycanthropic for you fine folks here and at one of our sister sites; vampires.com; darkness.com; topcomics.com; and zombies.org.)…

Running with Wolves

There’s a book entitled WOMEN WHO RUN WITH THE WOLVES: MYTHS AND STORIES OF THE WILD WOMAN ARCHETYPE, by Clarissa Pinkola Estes. This article is not about that book. I mean, it kinda is, since I’m mentioning it. And since I mentioned it, I might as well offer a micro review. The book is more…

Nobody Told the Contestants

What a squandered opportunity! This real-life incident is the best set-up for a Horror flick I’ve ever heard. You start with one of those lame-ass “reality” TV shows that are all the rage these days, this one called EDEN, with the premise that a group of regular people are dropped off in a remote location—unlike…

Neanderthal Cannibals

Man, we keep trying to help the hapless Neanderthals with their image problem. We post articles on how scientists have made discoveries proving they were smarter and more cultured than previously believed, how they likely entertained spiritual beliefs and possibly practiced religion, how our own Homo sapiens forebears had sex with and reproduced with—and quite…

Finding Bigfoot

Ah, lists. How I enjoy a love/hate relationship with them. They give me things to report on, but in order to do so I have to navigate through their various pages plagued by pop-ups and tedious slow load times. This one, however, has all the topics on one page, and I didn’t have to fight…

Capwolf Action Figure

Remember when Captain America got turned into a werewolf? If you’re a comic book fan, you’re probably asking, “Which time?” Or you might even be asking, “Which Captain America?” (Both Steve Rogers and the-Falcon-dressed-up-as-Captain-America have both spent some time in lupine form.) There’s a new action figure available from the Marvel Legends line that pays…

MINDHUNTER – The TV Series

I’m gonna go out on a limb here and assume that many if not most of you reading this have similar tastes to me. We dig werewolves and monsters in general. We love all things Horror, and our passion for the scary stuff in movies, Literature, and entertainment extends to the real world, too. We…

Stay out’n them woods!

This article from the fine folks over at iHorror talks up three movies that will, according to them, make you think twice before going camping. My first thought was, only three? And not one of them a werewolf movie? Puh-leeze! Okay, I’ll go along with THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, sure. The other two suggestions offered…

Jughead’s a Werewolf?!

I never really read the Archie comics. If I were more of a fan, it might upset me more than it has, the way they’re screwing with the characters and the mythos. There’s that new television show, where they’re trying to turn it into BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER. (Haven’t watched it.) Then there’s that comic…

King Terror

That’s what I’m choosing to christen the new giant bear fossil discovered in the Arctic. I’m taking it from the novel THE TERROR, by author Dan Simmons. Cleverly, the TERROR is the name of a ship, a real-life ship that carried a real-life expeditionary crew into the Arctic in the mid 1800s, a ship and…

Cursing Trump Conjures Demons?

This one had me giggling, thinking of Dana Carvey’s “Church Lady” character from SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE back in the day. Yeah, I do love me some decade-specific pop culture references. “Could it be…Saaaaaa-tan?” Heh heh heh. Come on, tell me it doesn’t make you at least crack a smile. If not, it will, I bet,…

Pucker up!

We know for a fact that humans and Neanderthals—or more accurately Homo sapiens and Neanderthals, since BOTH are “human”—got their freak on. We have some Neanderthal DNA inside of us. Only one way it coulda got in there, folks. This caveman DNA has even been blamed for certain modern maladies from which some of us…
