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?
There are countless werewolf movies out there, everything from badass blockbusters to cheesy B-movies. 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
There’s a lot of lingo in this post on DreadCentral about a werewolf clip, that was originally produced and recorded in order to promote a HorrorFest film festival in South Africa. I was really confused reading this the first few times, but I managed to put it in normal-people speak for you guys. It goes…Continue readingWerewolf Music Video Goes from Clip to Short Film
Ah, Seth Green, the man who re-introduced the werewolf to popular culture, instead of letting the big bad beasty stay locked up and back in the days of …ugh, celluloid. Black and white werewolves have their charm, don’t get me wrong, they even have a certain class and elegance. Wolfman is always going to be,…Continue readingHappy B-Day to Seth Green! Give the Gift of Favorite Oz Moments!
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…Continue readingSo Bad it’s Good: Attack of the Indian Werewolf
Hurray! Here’s some inside info on me, I am a HUGE trivia junkie. I absolutely love random and completely useless facts. I also love werewolf movies, so when you combine the two you’ve got posts like this. Here’s a list of some radass werewolf movie trivia: In The Wolf Man (1941), Talbot battled a bear…Continue readingWerewolf Movie Trivia
We’re back for another edition of a decade’s worth of werewolf movies, this time we’ll be taking a look at the furry flicks from the 1950s. Unfortunately, there weren’t all that many werewolf movies made in the 50s. Werewolf films didn’t become really popular until a few decades later (as you can see by this…Continue readingA Decade’s Worth of Werewolf Movies: 1950s
Looking back on each decade of werewolf movies shows that werewolves are eternal, we’ll never stop loving them and never stop watching them. Today I continue this series with the werewolf movies of the 1960s. La casa del terror: English title “House of Terror.” About an insane professor who is secretly draining blood from wax…Continue readingA Decade’s Worth of Werewolf Movies: 1960s
Just try to hold it in, guys. No matter how badly you might be struggling against the Hollywood remake machine, just try to keep in mind, –it’s not like you can never watch the original, ever again. They’re just delivering a fresh perspective on an old story. It might suck, but hey, at least we…Continue readingMonster Squad Remake – Gasp!
Which I think is bullshit, –werewolves might be portrayed mainly as males, but movies like Ginger Snaps, and even the Company of Wolves, make it glaringly obvious that girls can don the fur and fang role just as effortlessly as the males can; if not moreso. Haven’t we all thought, at one point or another,…Continue readingCinematical Says Werewolves are a ‘Hard Sell’
Sorry guys, but I just can’t get into the whole man-comedy trend, –a bunch of guys, getting drunk and doing stupid shit… Wow, who knew you had to go to the movies to see that? Hot Tub Time Machine looks moderately entertaining, but watching the trailer, all I could find myself looking forward to was…Continue readingSteve Pink Goes from Male Comedy to Werewolf Spoof
The screenwriter for Watchmen got pretty much none of the glory involved in the film; writers rarely get any of the fame, especially when it’s for a film. Which is why it’s an event to gasp and cream over, now that David Hayter has taken on directing; but not just any directing. I mean, it’s…Continue reading‘Watchmen’ Screenwriter David Hayter to Direct New Werewolf Movie ‘Wolves’
With movies like The Wolfman and New Moon behind us, we’re all wondering when the next kick ass werewolf movie will be coming out. If you’re wondering what we have to look forward to, you’ll be happy to know – A LOT! There are tons of werewolf movies that are about to be released with…Continue readingWerewolf Movies to Watch Out For
Kind of backwards, isn’t it? The reviewers and bloggers are calling the film ’30 Days of Night with werewolves instead of vampires’; they don’t know how right they are. 30 Days of Night actually began as a comic book as well, after its unsuccessful film pitch. Unphased, writers instead went for a comic book angle.…Continue readingWild Game: New Werewolf Movie Based on Unreleased Comic
There’s only one ‘black’ werewolf movie out there, –though, the werewolf isn’t even black! To be more specific, it’s the only blaxpoitation film with a werewolf in it; at least, that we’ve found. I’ve spent hours reading and referencing actual books, –not Google, –looking for more examples of werewolves in black cinema, but they just…Continue readingThe Only Black Werewolf Movie: The Beast Must Die!
Where would our favorite werewolf movies be today if they didn’t have groundbreaking movies to pave the way? And while the newer movies are filled with great special effects, Dolby surround sound, and makeup techniques and tools that truly transform man to beast, we simply wouldn’t be where we are today if it weren’t for…Continue readingTop Five Vintage Werewolf Movies
We are very lucky indeed this New Year’s! Not only is there going to be a full moon, but it will be the second one that has occurred during the month of December 2009. This is a very rare occurrence, and if you’ve ever wondered where the phrase “Once in a blue moon” comes along,…Continue readingCelebrate the Full Moon with a New Year’s Party!
Taylor Lautner and Chaske Spencer aren’t the only hot wolves that we’ll see on the big screen in 2010 and much before we see the Eclipse in June, we’ll get to see other big names such as Emily Blunt, Anthony Hopkins, and Benicio Del Toro either take on wolf forms or fight them. All of…Continue readingEmily Blunt Talks The Wolfman
There are ton of lists floating around out there of “best werewolf movies“, –well, this is ours. They aren’t arranged in any particular order, but you’ll probably pick up from my less than modest commentary which ones are the best of the best. If you haven’t seen them all, then get your Netflix account ready,…Continue readingOur Ten Most Awesome Werewolf Movies
Werewolf, 1966 – Only three issues of this comic were ever made, sadly enough, –so if you happen to be an owner, congratulations! The story follows a super agent werewolf, Major Wiley Wolf. After his plane crashes in the Arctic Circle, Wiley has amnesia, begins living with wolves, turns feral ( and probably goes bonkers),…Continue readingFive Fabulous Werewolf Comics
George Sands is the werewolf in Being Human, and although he’s great, he’s also kind of a nerd; with an IQ of 156, George is intelligent, though socially inept, and refers to being a werewolf as “that thing that happens to me once a month.” So, in a way, George sort of deals with being…Continue readingBeing Human & the American Remake
What could possibly be cooler and more badass than Rambo? Rambo and a werewolf, that’s what! The once lucrative franchise is now clearly grasping at straws to hold its head above water, but hey, that’s okay, because werewolves, –or at least, a creature that resembles one, –are involved. The film is supposed to be released,…Continue readingRambo V: The Savage Hunt
There’s a perverted werewolf, a pig with a penchant for torture porn parody, and a cat-girl furry thing who uses her many charms to seduce her naughty friends in this amalgamation of deliriously strange movie madness. I haven’t been this wrapped up in a werewolf movie since I saw Ginger Snaps for the first time.…Continue readingThe Best Werewolf Movie I’ve Seen In Years…. Is 5 Minutes Long
First there was Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and I admit it, I rebelled. I still haven’t read it because, well, –zombies just aren’t my thing, and I didn’t want to see the beautiful Austen world overrun with zombies. But I admit I’m thawing. Next in the list of classic literature mash-ups, is another Austen…Continue readingLittle Women & Werewolves
1. Silver Bullets – Too bad you have to request them custom made, or make them yourself, –yes, sad but true. Silver bullets are not commercially manufactured, but you can order them from most major ammo companies. 2. Werewolf Hunting & Specimen Kit – The kit includes handwritten notes on anatomy, weaknesses, sightings, experiences, and…Continue readingWeird Werewolf Wonders: Nine Things You Have to Buy!
1. Daughter of a Werewolf aka La lupa mannara – In this nifty Italian film from ’68, after being raped at 15, a young female descendant of werewolves, Daniela, goes on a killing rampage. She starts her rampage with her sister’s new husband Fabian, seducing him, then eating him. A blowjob that ends as badly…Continue readingThree Terrible Werewolf Movies You Can’t Miss
I love this trilogy; deeply, and anyone who doesn’t can just leave the room now. From the haunting orchestral soundtracks, to the gruesome effects, I’m in love. There’s a lot of talk about how the original film was a metaphor for the horrors of female puberty, –trust me, guys, female adolescence has never before been…Continue readingThe Ginger Snaps Trilogy
