Werewolfpocalypse!

If you keep up with the latest trends and whatnot then you know that there are loads of zombie apocalypse books and movies out now, and even a few vampire ones thrown in there. But how many werewolf apocalypses have you heard of? Personally, I can’t think of one.

Anyone that has followed my writing for some time knows that I have a somewhat disturbing love for apocalypse films and books, particularly post- apocalypse movies. It’s my creepy love. My favorites are Resident Evil: Extinction and Resident Evil: Afterlife. In these two movies the planet is overrun with mindless, vicious zombies that have wiped out nearly the entire population and the world as we know it is in shambles – it’s glorious. But you know what would make it even better? If you replaced the zombies with ferocious werewolves!

Just picture how badass that would be! A world plagued with beastly killing machines! Sure, there are countless werewolf movies out there with terrifying monsters that prey upon a group of humans that eventually beat the big bad wolves, but imagine that multiplied and instead of just a small group of werewolves attacking a small group of humans you have thousands of werewolves taking over the entire world!

A director or author could go any route too, but to make the whole apocalypse thing work, the werewolves would have to be animalistic monsters with no self-control. I picture some sort of disease, caused by a scratch or bite, that takes over the human’s mind and body completely, causing them to lose all humanity and only wanting one thing – to feed. You could even mix in the classics in there, like an allergy to silver.

Seriously, someone needs to get on this and make a werewolfpocalypse book or movie. A world overrun with semi-intelligent werewolves is way scarier than one plagued by mindless zombies.

What do you guys think? Can you picture a film or book about a werewolf apocalypse? How would you make it? If one was made would you watch or read it? I sure as hell would!
