Practical effects vs CGI has us wondering what a real-life werewolf transformation would look like. Let’s do the science. I actually read this; the process of turning into a werewolf laid out here for all is pretty interesting. How would it actually look… or work, for us –regular people, to turn into werewolves? Is it…Continue readingIs It Scientifically Possible to Turn Into a Werewolf?
Late Phases features an awesome lineup of genre familiars and some creepy special effects. This could be a lycanthropic homerun, and you’ll likely agree after checking out this awesome trailer. So excited! I’m right there with the guy who wrote this, –I’m close to losing my mind too. I love werewolf movies, and I gotta…Continue readingNew Werewolf Movie Coming! – Late Phases
Way back in the day, when I was much younger, my friend and I would purposely watch terrible B-grade films just for laughs. We loved those lame movies. The worst the better. Which brings you today’s post! There have been a lot of werewolf movies made. Some of them are spectacular displays of horror and…Continue readingWorst Werewolf Movies for Your Viewing Displeasure
I love movies and, just like I’m sure some of you do, I often despair that Hollywood has run out of original ideas since they seem to remaking every movie that was ever successful, regardless of how little anyone wants to see it remade. On the other hand, have you ever found yourself watching a…Continue readingWhy Don’t They Remake the Howling
THE WOLF MAN (1945) Contrary to popular belief, this was not the first werewolf movie. It wasn’t even Universal’s best, but it was a huge improvement over Werewolf of London. Written by Curt Siodmak, a German Jew who had fled Nazi Germany, the film is infused with the themes of alienation and the monster within…Continue readingMy Favorite Werewolf Movies!
*Points to the title* Is it so? Have werewolves become boring? Beings who transform from human to wolf could never get old, right? Well, it kind of seems like they have. Before you send me hate mail, hear me out… Lately it seems that nearly every werewolf book, movie or show is the same. The…Continue readingHave Werewolves Become Boring?

Werewolf films even cover every genre – comedy, horror, romance, drama… etc. There are loads of awesome werewolf movies, but which one is your ultimate favorite? Out of all of the many werewolf movies available which one do you, my wonderful…Continue readingWhat is Your Favorite Werewolf Movie?
Robert Englund has been a horror icon for years, –he’s been in more horror movies than most people even realize. Englund isn’t just Fred Kruger, –he also had his own mystery/sci-fi anthology show. Something like a cross between Tales from the Crypt and X-Files, called The Nightmare Cafe. Check out Englund’s IMDb page sometime; the…Continue readingStrippers vs. Werewolves Adds Robert Englund to the Cast!
When I first saw this review, I was thinking, “Okay, I’m prepared for romance, sad werewolves, and girls who have managed to be world-weary at 14.” But then I actually read it, and the more I read about references to great literature, great TV, intelligent, witty dialog and storytelling, I felt more and more that…Continue readingCheck Out ‘The Last Werewolf’ by Glen Duncan
The first reviews for new film Dylan Dog: Dead of Night are starting to pop up… it’s not exactly a werewolf movie, but werewolves are in it, at least one anyway, and he’s pretty badass: pro-wrestler Kurt Angle will be doing the werewolf in the film. Unfortunately, although Angle’s werewolf is definitely one monster you…Continue readingWhat Are People Saying About Dylan Dog?
Realistically speaking, the film industry has come an extremely long way since the first monster flicks. Today we generally build our monster storylines off conventions of the past, and CG has certainly helped bolster our imaginative creativity. People in the early 1900s, however, were thrilled to see any monsters on screen, even with shoddy make-up…Continue readingWerewolf Origins in Film
This is a tricky one. A lot of people see the box, and say “wow, nice cover art!” and then they turn it over, and find out the film was released in 1996. And those are only the first of many mistakes that will lead those poor bastards to the inevitable point at which they…Continue readingWerewolf Movies to Avoid: Werewolf (1996)
We love our werewolf movies over here, and there’s a new one coming out of Spain very shortly; according to new information on the web, filming and production are wrapping up. Which means that it’ll be out there in the world that much faster! Because god knows, we have to wait forever to get foreign…Continue readingLobos de Arga (Party of Wolves) Coming Soon!
I was holding off on watching this movie, for god, like, ages. Everyone was constantly going on and on about how crappy it was. Well. They suck. That’s right, fellow movie reviewing bloggers, you suck. First off, maybe it has to do with my weird underdog thing; I wanted Agent Starling to be with Hannibal…Continue readingRed Riding Hood: Finally, A Good Review
So, let me get this straight… in Scotland, Church Youth Clubs are something… teenagers want to be in? No no, I get it. But just wait, the premise for the film gets sillier, –Kelly, the main girl in the film, gives birth, as soon as the credits are over. Then later, the priest tells her…Continue readingWild Country: Half Teen Scream/Half Werewolf Movie
Now, you might be thinking “what’s the deal with all the attention to NetFlix?” Well, usually, this is how it works: Moonlight writes the stuff that’s more philosophical and folklore oriented. I write the stuff that’s focused on werewolf news, and trends, and if there’s an overflow, she’ll pick up the stuff I missed. It’s…Continue readingWerewolf Comedies to Add to Your Queue
I have been meaning to start this series of reviews for a while… NetFlix ‘Watch Instantly’ really keeps me busy, and they have a section just for old werewolf movies. I figured, for the rest of the NetFlix subscribers that are wary of digging deep into the recesses of the horror section, I might do…Continue readingNetFlix Retro-Review: Monster Dog 1985
I know, I know, the fact that they’re even filming the movie at all is hellaciously exciting, –since for some reason, big budget werewolf movies seem to have a hell of a time getting off the ground. But we finally have something to howl about, and damn it, I mean to do some howling! The photos…Continue readingThe First Set Photos of Underworld 4 Have Arrived!
Oh. My. God. Seriously? The reception of the first one wasn’t bad enough? The Oscar for makeup was like a pity award; “The movie sucked, and it dragged like the tampon string of a stripper with ten kids, but the makeup was good. Here ya go buddy.” So rather than accept defeat like a man,…Continue readingAnother Wolf Man Reboot?
To some of you, it may come as a shock, but, believe it or not ‘The Howling’ is based on a novel. I say ‘shock’ because it’s always hard to believe than any good movie can be based off a book, but it does happen, once in a great while. I mean, hey, look at…Continue reading‘The Howling’ Re-Released in Three Hardback Collector’s Editions
But in a funny way. Remember, the werewolf movie with the pornstar actress? It sounds like one of those “so stupid it’s funny” movies, from the recent film review it’s had. Personally, that just recommends it more to me. I love goofy horror movies, and it’s always been evident to pretty much anyone who has…Continue readingHalf Moon (2011) Sounds Like It Sucks
Whether you’re one of the apparent millions of people obsessed with the SpaceWolves iPhone app in Greece, of all places, or you’re one of the people who practically dropped dead of shock when some of the werewolf cast of the Twilight saga walked into a fast food place in Vancouver, –and chances are, you’re not,…Continue readingWerewolves are Universal… But Why Canada?
Weird to write a book to go with a movie, I always thought; usually, it’s the other way around: Filmmakers are too unoriginal to come up with real ideas and scripts, so they look for authors willing to let them massacre the story they started out with. It seems like cheating though, to pen a…Continue readingNovel Companion to Red Riding Hood Film
What’s funny is that basically, there are no updates, and the whole rumor circulating about a remake of An American Werewolf in London, was never really established as fact. But finally, in the middle of a discussion about a different film (Some Guy Who Kills People), John Landis reveals not just facts about the new…Continue readingRemake of An American Werewolf in London?
I love animated movies; whether it’s American, Italian, Japanese, –whatever, –I’ve always just collectively referred to them as ‘kids movies’, even though of course, not all animated films are kids’ movies. On top of that, from what I’ve read about Michel Ocelot’s past work, Princes et Princesses, it’s a bit artsy. Ocelot uses a combination…Continue readingFrench Animated Werewolf in Tales of the Night
