werewolf, werewolves and lycans

Snarlbucks

I promised Twitter user @Quebecoiswolf‏ that I would give him/her credit for bringing this to my attention, so thanks, @Quebecoiswolf‏! “This” in this case is SNARLBUCKS, the werewolf-themed coffee mug. I’m always happy to help an enterprising creator hawk his/her wares if I like said wares, and I think the Snarlbucks mug is adorable. You…

Mane vs. Kane

Reports are that at a recent Horror con, stars Tyler Mane and Kane Hodder were both asked which of the classic Horror Monsters they would like to play. Both of them chose the Frankenstein monster. Unfortunately for them both, it seems Javier Bardem will be playing the role in the upcoming remake from Universal Studios….

Nazi Furries

My favorite targets for my seemingly vitriolic yet ultimately benign mocking—since I got in trouble for being too harsh in my criticisms of TWILIGHT and THE VAMPIRE DIARIES—are Furries. They are such easy targets, too. Grown men and women who like to put on animal costumes and—do things. (There might be kids reading this article,…

The Beaster Bunny

By the time you all are reading this, Easter, the holiday, will be over. Unless you, like me, belong to one of the high liturgical Christian denominations, in which Easter is an entire SEASON. It runs for fifty days thereabouts, from Easter Sunday to the Day of Pentecost (the coming of the Holy Spirit to…

(Comic) Book Review: PENNY DREADFUL #1

I made a point of hitting my local comic book shop of choice this past weekend, because I knew that the first issue of PENNY DREADFUL: THE AWAKENING, the new series being written by TV series executive producer Chris King, had come in. Ever since all us dreadfuls (that’s what hardcore fanboys and fangirls of…

Human Flesh Isn’t Nutritious

Werewolves, traditionally, are human beings that transform into wolves or, more popularly today, wolf-like but still partially human hybrid creatures, and eat often people, or attempt to do so. Anthropophagy, or cannibalism, is the practice whereby a human eats the flesh of another human. For this reason, any time cannibalism appears in a headline it’s…

Werewolf on Drums

Scroll down on this list of “15 Dark Secrets About the Muppets” to number ten. The others aren’t really that interesting, anyway, nor are they particularly “dark.” The one we will concern ourselves with is the one relating to Animal, described by puppeteer Frank Oz in five words: sleep, food, drums, sex, and pain. (Not…

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…
