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 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…)
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…)
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…)
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.
