As a regular contributor to this site for the past four years, I’ve been privy to production details of a great many werewolf films at all stages of their development. There is none, however, that I’ve heard more about than the Canadian horror-comedy WolfCop. (more…)
It’s back! After some not-so-patient waiting, the official trailer for “werewolves on a train” horror film Howl has officially been released as an exclusive on Empire Online. This is the same trailer that caused such a ruckus two weeks ago, and watching it again this morning, its gore and practical werewolf effects are every bit as good. (more…)
It’s rather appropriate that this month’s Full Moon Feature was actually produced by Full Moon Entertainment. In fact, 1990’s Meridian was one of the first films made by Full Moon after Charles Band’s previous company, Empire Pictures, folded. (more…)
Three months into 2015, I’m still playing catch-up with many of the werewolf films that came out last year, but failed to make it out to my neck of the woods. (I’m not exaggerating much when I say it pains me to think that the last one I saw in a theater was 2012’s Underworld: Awakening.) Today’s selection is the simply titled Wolves, which seems to promise a back-to-basics tale, but that’s not what it delivers. (more…)
Ten years ago this month, Wes Craven’s Cursed hit theaters, and he couldn’t have picked a more apt title for what turned out to be a remarkably troubled project. (more…)
Note as of 2017-07-07: this page is about a year out of date, but will be getting a HUGE update in the next few days!
Did you lose track of all the werewolf movies coming out lately? I did, and it’s kinda my job to keep tabs on them all! Here’s a cheat sheet to help you keep up on releases and plan your purchases or pre-orders.
- Underworld: Blood Wars. The Underworld saga continues. Directed by Anna Foerster and starring Kate Beckinsale. Currently in post-production, with a theatrical release planned for January 2017.
- The Wildness. Stoner ski-bum versus rich-kid werewolves. As of March 2016, in pre-production near Vancouver, Canada. Directed by Marcel Sarmiento.
- Bad Vibes, starring Elijah Wood. A psychedelic werewolf cult versus “squares” in 1969. Was set to shoot in Austin in October 2015, so it’s probably in post production now.
- WolfCop II, the sequel to the best thing to come out of Canada since poutine. Directed by Lowell Dean, and starring Leo Fafard, Amy Matysio, and Yannick Bisson. Currently in post-production.
- Little Dead Rotting Hood, directed by Jared Cohn and starring Eric Balfour andBianca A. Santos. Zombies, werewolves, fairy tales, and the handsome guy who plays Duke on Haven. Available on DVD in North America.
