Juan Martinez Moreno’s Game of Werewolves is one of those movies I keep hearing good things about, which is why I keep posting about it, but I have no way of seeing it. The Spanish horror / dark comedy film has been screened at a few festivals – most recently Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival – but it hasn’t been picked up for North American distribution yet. Film guru and Werewolf News contributor Craig J. Clark sent me a link to this review by Horror 101’s Aaron Christensen, posted last week. I encourage you to read the review on Aaron’s site, but I can’t resist quoting this line:
I’ve seen the film twice this year already (once in Belgium at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival, once Stateside at the Chicago Latino Film Festival) and am gearing up to watch it again this Friday at Fantasia in Montreal.
Film’s so good, dude saw it three times. If you’ve seen it, I’d love to know what you thought! The more people talk about it, the more likely it is that someone here on our big dumb continent will pick it up for distribution.
The film’s appearance at Fantasia has shaken loose a few new photos of the film’s numerous werewolves, and I’m happy to share them here. I’ve seen folks on other sites post the usual “I hate CG but these suits are dumb” comments about these werewolves, but I like ’em a lot!
