Wanted – “Real” Werewolf Special Effects

A. Quinton — Mar. 30th 2008

Den Of Geek has just posted an article about the possible resurgence of “real-tech” effects in horror films, and more specifically, in werewolf films. It cites the effects in the forthcoming Wolf Man remake as a major step in the right direction:

[Director] Joe Johnston may be building up the impetus of anti-CGI feeling started by Quentin Tarantino – whose action-packed Death Proof is said to be CGI-free – by deciding that his much-anticipated The Wolf Man has eschewed the render-farm for the more traditional talents of six-time Oscar-winning make-up wizard Rick Baker.

As a bonus, there’s a post-article link to a Den Of Geeks list of the Top 10 Movie Werewolves.
