Bad Werewolf Movies: Netflix Edition
Since we had some much fun discussing some of the worst werewolf movies out there, I thought we’d do it again! But this time we are focusing on the worst werewolf flicks found on Netflix. There are a shit ton of crappy movies on Netflix and I’d say the vast majority of them can be found in the supernatural movie section. One look at the werewolf movies on Netflix and you can see for yourself – most of them are awful. Here are just a few of the disasters you can find…
What irritates me right away is the movie cover. It uses the same damn stock image I have seen countless times. Do a search for self-published vampire novels and you can find a dozen authors who have used the SAME stock shot for their book cover. Seriously, find a new image. That one picture needs to be taken off of stock websites. Other than that, it’s less a horror movie and more of a soft core porn flick. If you like gratuitous sex scenes then this is the B-grade film for you. It’s also packed full of bad CGI.
Description: After sleeping with Nora, a sexy stranger passing through town, Syd undergoes a supernatural transformation that plunges him into a frightening new reality and sparks conflict with Nora’s angry ex-lover, who behaves more like an animal than a man.
Howling V: The Rebirth
I think most people can agree that every Howling made after the original is garbage. This is, however, considered the best of the bad sequels. It’s an awful low-budget flick, but it’s not the worst. Prepare yourself for some awful acting and campiness though.
Description: A diverse group of travelers converge in Romania to be the first people to enter a mysterious castle that has been closed for 500 years. Rumors persist that the area is inhabited by violent wolves, and soon the tourists begin to disappear one by one.
This flick has some of the worst reviews I have ever read. There is little to no plot. A werewolf is running around and killing folks. That sums up the entire story. The acting is cringe-worthy. The werewolf… well…it may be one of the worst costumes ever to hit film. It’s so bad that it’s laughable and heartbreaking at once.
Description: Agent Jack Driscoll’s quest to hunt down the legendary beast of the Appalachian Mountains is finally realized when a full moon rouses the ravenous appetite of the monster, leading it to prey on a group of local campers.
I’ll stop at just three. There are others, like every other awful Howling movie, but we’ll end the misery here. These films are perfect for a bad movie night. That’s about all they’re good for. What do you think?
