Audie & The Wolf – A Werewolf Movie in Reverse?

A. Quinton — Jul. 28th 2008

We all know how werewolves work. Take a human, and turn him (or her) into a wolf-like creature. But what if the reverse happened, and a wolf woke up one morning as an amnesiac human with a craving for lots and lots of flesh? It’s a concept that’s been tossed around before, but Audie & The Wolf, a film by Brooklyn Reptyle Productions, looks like a fresh take on the idea. Black humour, gore, a Satanist villain named Jim and a grinning reverse-werewolf with a chainsaw? Yes.

    I’m almost unnaturally busy with teaching at the moment, so I haven’t had a chance to view the video…
    …but a while ago I did read the first few chapters of a book that was a comedic take on the reverse-werewolf concept. It’s called “Howling Mad” by Peter David, and it has tinges of the classic movie “Being There” (which was actually adapted from a book). Essentially, a normal wolf is bitten by a werewolf, he turns into a man periodically, and he suddenly has to navigate his way around the bizarre culture of human kind. For comedy’s sake, the types of people he runs into are usually hyperboles of the subcultures or groups they would belong to in real life, but the formula works pretty well. The cover itself says a lot, and is pretty damn funny:
