werewolf, werewolves and lycans

I haven’t seen this one yet, but it looks interesting. “After getting bitten by a mysterious creature, a young woman’s life begins to spiral out of control as she becomes a threat to the people of a small town,” says the premise. Which sounds like the basic plotline of every werewolf movie ever made, excepting that it features a female as a lead character. Whoever wrote that blurb could’ve done a better job, surely. Because, as I said, it looks interesting, insomuch as you can tell from a teaser trailer.

Yeah, about that blurb, though. “After getting bitten by a mysterious creature, a young man’s life begins to spiral out of control as he becomes a threat to the people of a small village.” That’s THE WOLFMAN. Or howzabout “After getting bitten by a mysterious creature, a young American’s life begins to spiral out of control as he becomes a threat to the people of London.” You don’t need me to tell you which movie that applies to, do you? Hell, even if we use the blurb in its original form—“After getting bitten by a mysterious creature, a young woman’s life begins to spiral out of control as she becomes a threat to the people of a small town”—it works just as well for GINGER SNAPS!
