Underworld: The New Dawn – Finally, Plot Updates!

There have finally been some fabulous new updates about the Underworld sequel, –and good news, apparently, it’s not a prequel. I’m sorry guys, but as much as I love werewolves, Rise of the Lycans was just… bleh. But in Underworld 4, we’re going back to the present, or actually, the future. The second bit of…

The SyFy Premier of Being Human, Finally!

For those of you who have not seen the show yet, SPOILER ALERTS! We’re introduced to Josh and Aidan first; Josh is standing around awkward, naked, and waiting to turn into a werewolf, while Aidan is busy eating some poor 20-something. Josh’s transformation isn’t quite the spectacle as George’s transformation, but SyFy’s version combines real…

Gamer Flashback: Altered Beast

Most of you are too young to remember Altered Beast, actually even I’m too young to remember it, which is a shame because it’s a video game that stars a werewolf! It came out way back in 1988 as an arcade game by Sega, and was eventually ported to a few home consoles and computers….

Interview with Being Human’s Russell Tovey

To clarify real quick, I’m talking about the original Being Human, the BBC show from the UK: and Russell Tovey is eee… GEORGE SANDS! Only the best werewolf we’ve seen in I dunno how many frigging years! I love George’s character, his werewolf form, the delicate status of ‘almost human’, and still technically living he…

So Bad it’s Good: Attack of the Indian Werewolf

Horror spoofs rarely do anything for me, but if you’re into the “so bad, so horribly bad, it’s good” genre of horror movies, then you’ll be all over the ‘Attack of the Indian Werewolf’ film. The film is set, produced, and filmed, in South Africa, and the whole premise of the film, while laughable, leaves…

Action, Violence & Werewolves – Need I Say More?

From what you guys have told me, you prefer the badass werewolves over the lovesick puppies currently dominating the bookstores. Luckily, I have just the book for you, a book that Publishers Weekly’s said is a “surprisingly compelling read for horror fans with strong stomachs.” The Frenzy Way by Gregory Lamberson would be the name…

New Werewolf Movie Alert: Big Bad Coming Spring 2011

I just got the skinny on this new werewolf movie called “Big Bad”, –I doubt it’s a ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ type story, like the one coming out with Amanda Seyfried, but it’s supposed to be more of a teen slasher thing. Except the slasher is a werewolf, and this is an indie movie, not…

Being Human: Interview with Sam Huntington, Playing Josh the Werewolf

I thought this was interesting, because the werewolf in Being Human was by far, the most colorful characters. He wasn’t the suave, melodramatic vampire, or the gloomy ghost, living on the fringes of reality. There were even times that the vampire character, John Mitchell, and Annie Sawyer, the ghost, remarked about how lucky George Sands,…

Today Dear Readers, I bring you news from my very own home town of Grand Rapids, Michigan! You see, there’s this reverend holding a class on werewolves and the evil within us.

Why have I never heard of this guy? James Enge has been praised by author Lev Grossman, and Tim Pratt of Locus, and apparently, his werewolves are something to write home about. This is the third book in a series about magic, madness, and of course, epic battles between good, evil, and ambiguous. According to…

We don’t have a whole to do here other than obsess about werewolves, and god forbid you should happen to like boobs and werewolves, because chances are, you’re never going to get a chance to write about these things together.

How to Feed a Werewolf

Where to start? If you have a loved one who happens to be a werewolf, you may question yourself as to what you might feed them. This can lead to big problems; carrying off a neighbor’s dog, or cat, and even being eaten yourself. A starving werewolf is nothing to play around with. So I’ve…

Bete de Gevaudon

Back in the 1500s and for centuries after, Europe was plagued by the fear of werewolves. Nearly every country reported werewolf sightings, werewolf deaths and so on. But no country has as many werewolf stories as France, which is where today’s tale hales from. The story is that of the Bete de Gevaudon, a creature…

War Wolves

While scanning newer movie releases I came across War Wolves, a B grade made-for-TV movie that just came out on DVD this past November, even though it originally aired on the SyFy channel back in 2009.  It may be one of those low budget films, but it doesn’t actually sound too bad, that is, if…

While writing for Vampires.com on upcoming vampire books I came across a vampire book that also features werewolves.

The BBC’s dramedy “Being Human,” about a ghost, a werewolf, and a vampire sharing a flat, is so popular in the UK that is has been ripped off and turned into an American remake. Fans of the original, which is currently in its third season, aren’t too pleased about SyFy remaking it, but it has…
