Watch me watch 1941’s “The Wolf Man” for the 1st time on the next full moon

A. Quinton — Nov. 9th 2012

Regardless of the damage this may do to my credibility as “the Werewolf News guy”, I can’t keep this inside any longer: I have never seen the 1941 classic werewolf movie “The Wolf Man“. Ever. Not even 30 seconds of it. I’m sorry.

This is anĀ egregious failing on my part, and I have no excuse, other than a distaste for the “classic wolf man” aesthetic (I just can’t abide thatĀ DA haircut). As a matter of fact, if it weren’t for Craig J. Clark’s outstanding Full Moon Features series here on Werewolf News, my knowledge of werewolf movies prior to the 1980s would be non-existant. I hope you can forgive me for this failing. If you can still tolerate my uneducated words, please read on to learn how I intend to rectify the situation.

The next full moon falls on Wednesday November 28th. On that day, at 6 PM Pacific / 9 PM Eastern, I invite you to watch The Wolf Man with me in real time.

Synchtube is the venue, and in addition to my participation in the built-in chatroom, I will be live-tweeting my comments and reactions. By making my education on that auspicious Werewolf Wednesday a public event, I hope to regain the trust and respect of the several half-dozens of people who are horrified at this gap in my lycanthropic experience. Join me, won’t you?

    I’ll be there (or be square).

    The Wolf Man (1941) is the only pre-Howling/AWIL werewolf movie I’ve seen. Any plans for others?

  • THE SHAME. I’m there. If you’re feeling like attending a second semester of old school, I recommend the 1935 Werewolf of London, to make you really appreciate how far wolfy makeup has come.

  • Craig J. Clark

    A shocking revelation, Andrew, but I’m proud of you for owning up to it and resolving to do something about it.

  • Lew

    I’m looking forward to it! For its time, it is actually a genuinely good movie. Not Citizen Kane good, but an entertaining and well-made genre flick. And from a modern perspective, it’s entertaining in ways it didn’t intend, so it’s all win-win.

  • The sad news is that I’m still at work at 6 p.m., so I cannot join.

  • And then I was without internets from the 27th until now. Mucho sadness.
