Werewolf, witch & transformation in “Plain Sight” concept posters

I have a new job. As I acclimate, I’ll have less time during breaks to check out things (particularly videos) that I might post here. That’ll change as I get settled in, but for now I’m going to switch into drive-by “check this cool thing out!” mode. First up: three concept posters for Plain Sight. (more…)

The 1 surprising College Humor post I didn’t immediately close (because: werewolves)

Illustrator and comic artist Sarah Benkin put together an 11-page comic for College Humor that lampoons the vapid listicles College Humor is known for and that features blood, “meat farts” and three werewolves (yes, three – go all the way to the end). (more…)

A headline like “Christopher Lee, Spies, and Werewolf Sex” is worth copying

The Austin Chronicle has an excellent piece on director Philippe Mora‘s experiences in Prague while shooting Howling II: Your Sister Is a Werewolf. He talks about the legendary Christopher Lee, having to explain 1,000 punk extras to a military general, and the challenges of shooting a three-way werewolf sex/transformation scene. (more…)

Syfy’s “Sharktopus vs. Whalewolf” trailer stole three minutes of my life

If you can’t guess what “whalewolf” means, try saying “werewolf” with your tongue stuck to the roof of your mouth. There, you just pronounced the name of a human/wolf/orca hybrid, which is more fun than you’re likely to have watching this movie. (more…)

Local makeup school turns local writer into local wolfman

Fan Expo Vancouver hit my town two weekends ago, and as part of the event’s celebration of geek culture, monsters and creature effects, two New Image College makeup artists turned Vancity Buzz contributor Andres Markwart into a wolfman for your time-lapse video enjoyment. (more…)

Kotaku investigates Bloodborne’s “playable werewolf” rumour ahead of strategy guide release

I’ve seen a lot of chatter lately that indicates the werewolf connection in Bloodborne for PS4 is deeper than I wrote about last week, and in a gargantuan Kotaku post Patricia Hernandez catalogs the evidence. The conclusion: even though you’re killing werewolves in the game, you’re probably a werewolf yourself, too. (more…)

Watch gorgeous, funny & sexy “She-Wolf Of The Woods” for free

“Meat that dies happy, dies tender.” Last summer I posted about She-Wolf Of The Woods, an indie horror short created by Adriana Polito and her team on a tiny budget, with beautiful / scary / funny / NSFW results. Now She-Wolf is available to watch for free on YouTube! (more…)

The lycanthropic “Growing Pains” of male adolescence

Growing Pains (Vokseværk) is an award-winning animated Danish short film about a teenage boy named Fabian, and the unexpectedly monstrous side effects of his burgeoning sexuality. Based on the subject matter, maybe don’t watch the teaser at work. (more…)

Marika Hackman turns into a werewolf & attacks her band

In the video for her song “Animal Fear”, English musician Marika Hackman turns into a wolfman (wolf-woman, don’t be normative!) style werewolf and attacks her band. Or does she? (more…)

MTV’s Teen Wolf “Transformation” trailer is less exciting than a single frame from an earlier trailer

MTV has released “Watch The Transformation“, another teaser trailer for their upcoming Teen Wolf series. A more accurate title might be “Watch A Slow Reverse Dolly As A Bare-Chested Tyler Posey Loses His Sideburns”. This is a transformation from werewolf form back to human, but either we join our hero when he’s already 90% done with the change or this is the most minimalist werewolf design since Jack Nicholson in “Wolf”. Judge for yourself. [Note: using a YouTube embed for this because WordPress is choking on the MTV embed code]

I understand that there are a number of different werewolf “types” in this show, some of them more monstrous than others (presumably the “villains”). I’m hoping we get to see more of these rumoured beasties before the June 5th debut. At the moment, I’ve only seen a single frame of footage from all of the trailers and teasers that interests me, and that’s from the official trailer that came out last month.

That’s right. A hand. A big clawed hand. All my hopes and dreams for this show hang from you, scary hand. Please take good care of them.
