werewolf, werewolves and lycans

We’re (Not) Only Human (Or Technically We Are, BUT…)

HOMO SAPIENS are a recent arrival on planet Earth, showing up late to the party a paltry 200,000 years ago. The young whippersnappers! And they–we–are only one branch on the Human family tree. The only branch, that we know of, that still exists, but still only one. In times gone past, our HOMO SAPIENS ancestors…

The Lobizon Caught On Camera

You know that container of salt I keep around for just such occasions as this? Go ahead and take yourself a pinch of it for this news. A werewolf has been captured on a video recording in Argentina. Or maybe it’s an alien that just looks like a werewolf. Or maybe it’s a Chupacabra that…

A QUIET PLACE: The Monsters Explained

I like that you don’t know anything about the monsters in A QUIET PLACE, other than the things you NEED to know. Namely, that the creatures are blind and hunt by sound, that they are nigh-indestructible, and that they are vicious maneaters. That’s all you need to enjoy the movie. Further details are unnecessary, even…

DC’s Mad Monk

An article was posted on this site fairly recently about some interaction between Spider-Man and a werewolf, specifically in a Disney/Marvel cartoon. And when you think about it, there’s almost a surprisingly amount of involvement with werewolves in the Marvel comics, given that they’ve roped in everything from figures of Norse mythology to cutting edge…

Zombie Raccoons

Or should that be “raccoon zombies”? Eh, potato, poh-tah-to. I’m thinking of starting a recurring thematic subcategory here at werewolves.com, and maybe sharing it with our sister sites vampires.com and darkness.com, calling it “Perfect Set-Ups for Horror Movies.” No time like the present, right? Here we go, then. Let’s restart this article. Here is the…

Look for BEAST in May

It’s been making the rounds on the film circuit, and scoring some impressive reviews. Now it’s scheduled for release on May 11th. The “it” we are speaking of is a movie called BEAST, the debut project of writer-slash-director Michael Pearce. For me, I always give extra credence to news of a new genre project from…

A Visit With The HORROR TOUR GUIDE

I was contacted recently by fellow Horror geek Cindy Sanabria, aka Slaughter Cin, Empress of Gore (nice handle), letting me know about the new website www.horrortourguide.com. Said the Empress: “We launched our horror site last month and have loads of free content such as films, podcasts and horror themed video games. We recently uploaded two…

STRANGER THINGS a rip-off or a theme park attraction?

Some dude’s suing the Duffer brothers for stealing his idea for their monster hit show STRANGER THINGS. It’s gonna get tricky, though, because the guy who is claiming the brothers ripped him off based his own story, the one supposedly cribbed by the Duffers, from the Montauk incident, which is reportedly a real-life event. The…

THE TERROR and the PC Police

Gawd, save us from such stupidity. I almost wish the monster from THE TERROR was real, and that it dined exclusively on PC nitwits. Reading this article from the vaunted Smithsonian magazine, I was disappointed. I expect better from them than kowtowing to extremist ideological bullshit. The article bitches, or, to be more fair, points…

A QUIET PLACE Conquers–But Should It Get A Sequel?

The film opened to a $50 million take this past weekend. It has both geek critics and even most of the commoners raving. Stephen King called it an “extraordinary piece of work.” It knocked READY PLAYER ONE from the top spot. It bested the opening weekend totals for GET OUT and SPLIT. It WAY outdid…

The Visual Magic of THE TERROR

This show is beautiful in its bleakness. It’s magnificent to behold. It’s so realistic that you can almost feel the cold of the Arctic for yourself. You expect to see your breath fogging in the air. Watching it, you’d swear that it’s filmed on location at the North Pole. But no, it’s shot on a…

Movie Review: A QUIET PLACE

One of the few sitcoms of recent years I ever watched was THE OFFICE, so I knew John Krasinski already, but I never would have guessed that the likeable and sarcastic Jim Halpert would have the Horror chops for something like this. Wow. That one word sums it up. Just, wow. Krasinski co-wrote, directed, and…

Debunking The Wisconsin Werewolf

We’re talking about the legendary Beast of Bray Road, Wisconsin. It’s one of my go-to examples whenever I get asked–and this happens often–whether or not werewolves are real. My answer is always the same: Are we talking about the standard Hollywood werewolf? If so, then no, they do not. However, is it possible that an…

More CHUD!

This is a cause for celebration. For me, it is, and it should be for you as well. Even those of you who may never have seen the gloriously shlocky 80s Horror flick CHUD. Oh, sorry. That should be “C.H.U.D.” with the periods in place after the letters. C.H.U.D. is an acronym for “Cannibalistic Humanoid…

Hell? No!

Supposedly Pope Francis made the statement that Hell doesn’t exist. We say “supposedly” because the source for this quote, a leading Italian newspaper, has allegedly, and by the admission of its publisher, in the past printed comments that supposedly came from Francis but which he never actually said. That makes the whole thing suspect, but…

Jackalopes Return

I never much care for the April Fools’ posts that pop up every year on April 1st. Maybe because they’re so obvious. Like corny jokes, or old ones, where you know the punchline from the start. Few of them are inventive or clever. Take this article on jackalopes, for example. You take one look at…

The SMALLVILLE Chicks and the Sex Cult

This isn’t really werewolf-related, but it’s geek-culture relevant and it’s interesting. Also, any mention of cults automatically puts me in mind of the Manson family, and Charlie has been all up in our newsfeed as of late. There’s no evidence that self-help guru turned cult leader–alright, alleged cult leader, since he hasn’t been convicted of…

Zak and the Skinwalker

I finally caught an episode of Zak Bagans’ show GHOST ADVENTURES. I stopped watching such “paranormal investigation” documentary shows some time ago, because they’re so tedious and so dull. People walking around in the dark asking, “Can you make a noise to let us know you’re here?” and then there is ALWAYS some noise. “What…

Movie Review: PUPPETMASTER: AXIS TERMINATION

I’d been eagerly awaiting this one, and maybe I built it up too much in my mind. Still, I have to say I was disappointed. The film felt like it was made because they knew they HAD to make it, to wrap up the “Axis” trilogy. (Not that this one is really connected to the…

Primed For PRIMAL? Skip It.

The recipe sounds tasty. Think SNAKES ON A PLANE. Then replace the snakes with various and sundry large carnivorous animals. There is a big game hunter onboard the plane, chaperoning all the animals. There is also an assassin who is being extradited to the US for trial. The bad guy escapes custody and opens all…

Equal Time For Werewolves

Recently I posted an article over at our sister site vampires.com concerning the ways in which a person can become a vampire. It seems only fair, then, that I tackle the subject here of how one can become a werewolf. Ready? Let’s do this! First off, you can make a deal with the devil or…

MOUNTAIN MONSTERS Rednecks Against The Were-Pig

Last week–or was it week before last–I mentioned that I had finally seen an episode of the MOUNTAIN MONSTERS television series from Destination America, and I pronounced my verdict: it’s total, unpolished bullshit. How I made it so many years without ever seeing an episode I can’t say, but now that I know it exists,…

STRANGER THINGS Season Three: What We Know So Far

Not a whole lot, if I’m being honest, but let’s discuss what we DO know. We can speculate about the rest. Perhaps the most exciting bit of confirmed news for me is that the Shadow Monster will return. “The Shadow Monster is still lurking up there out there in the Upside Down. He is determined…

Charlie, Charlie Everywhere

Charles Manson may be dead, but he doesn’t appear to be going anywhere anytime soon. The guy’s name just keeps popping up in the news (which would no doubt please him immensely). Star of GHOST ADVENTURES and documentarian behind DEMON HOUSE Zak Bagans, who managed to snag a pair of Manson’s dentures for his haunted…

Father of Birmingham Baphomet Dies

The Baphomet, an anthropomorphic, androgynous goat-headed figure, has become the unofficial official symbol of modern Satanists (Who don’t really believe in Satan, or God, or…it’s complicated, okay?) but it has its origins in the history of the Knights Templar, who were accused of worshipping “Baphomet” or “Bahomet,” which is a mispronunciation of Mohammed. In other…
