Someone at Uncork’d Entertainment really likes werewolf movies! The same distributor that released Blood Moon and Dark Moon Rising is bringing Crying Wolf to VOD on December 12th and to DVD on January 5th.
There is a lot of strange and weird goings on in the little village of Deddington. For centuries a pack of werewolves have resided in the sleepy town but when local girl Charlotte meets a particularly gruesome death, the town is descended upon by reporters, crazy detectives and lunatic hunters desperate to get their story, solve the crime and kill the beasts. But these wolves are smart… very smart.
Its Facebook page and various other sites describe the movie as a “horror comedy”, but despite a bit of ham and some so-bad-it-must-be-intentional CGI, the trailer looks pretty straight-faced. I want to be interested in this, but I’m worried it’s another film that tried to go for straight horror, fell short, and got repositioned as “satire”.
Also, does anyone know what “VOD” actually means? Netflix and Hulu? Local cable company pay-per-view?
Edit: Craig J. Clark explained which services “VOD” tends to cover in the comments. I’ll quote him here to save you a scroll & click:
In addition to being available through your cable provider (provided you have one), VOD generally also means it’ll be on platforms like iTunes, Amazon, and maybe even as a rental on YouTube or Vimeo.
