MTV’s “Teen Wolf” Will Have Three Types of Werewolves, May Not Be Terrible After All

A. Quinton — Jul. 24th 2010

Finally, someone at San Diego Comic-Con with an interest in horror has some info about MTV’s Teen Wolf show. Nomad at Dread Central got some interesting and somewhat encouraging news from producer Jeff Davis. Of particular interest are these two tidbits:

– KNB FX [sic] is handling the PRACTICAL effects!! The look of the werewolves (yes, I said “werewolves” plural) was very important so they brought in the best.

– There will be three types of werewolves in this show, all with a different look.

KNB EFX has got some pretty serious chops in the realm of practical effects, and they’ve done werewolves before too: for Wes Craven’s “Cursed” (pictured on the right) and “The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian”. I am now cautiously optimistic about this!

    My hope is rekindling.

    It’s not as if any of the earlier reviews were negative, just mixed, and the script reviews were all positive. Cautious optimism seems justified, especially since the showrunner, Jeff Davis, has a fine track record.

    My cautious optimism levels are rising as well.
    If they can cram a Michael J Fox cameo in there I may just have to break down and actually get excited.

    Not holding my breath on this one.

    I was at the panel when they presented footage from the pilot. It was about ten minutes of so. It was very very good. It showed how the lead character got attacked and bitten, and it wasn’t cheesy, it wasn’t phony and it wasn’t something you’d expect from MTV. On top of that, the effects they used in the footage was pretty good as well.

    After seeing the footage, and hearing what Davis, Russell Mulcalhy (who’s not only directing the pilot but several other episodes as well), along with some of the cast., I have to say my interest in this has somewhat peaked. We still have to wait and see on how the rest of it goes, but I’ll tell you what, I’m very optimistic about this show now.
