The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
Cast: Leo Fafard, Amy Matysio, Jonathan Cherry, Sarah Lind, Aidan Devine, Jesse Moss, Corinne Conley
It’s not unusual for alcoholic cop Lou Garou to black out and wake up in unfamiliar surroundings, but lately things have taken a strange turn. Crime scenes seem oddly familiar... Lou's senses are heightened... and when the full moon is out, he's a rage-fueled werewolf. WOLFCOP is one cop's quest to become a better man…one transformation at a time. But things are not what they seem in Lou's little town. Some of the town's folk have a dark secret that threatens Lou and the rest of the town.
I am not going to go into major plot details here so not to ruin the film for those waiting to see it but I can tell you I had a blast watching this. The first thing I noticed was how amazing the film looked, for a film done on a limited budget I was very impressed with its production values.
I love a good werewolf movie so I was really looking forward to seeing this and I was not disappointed. The film is a horror/comedy that never takes itself serious I loved how original the film was on how Lou became a werewolf to how he transformed. I have not had this much fun watching a man turn into a werewolf since 'American Werewolf in London' came out.
The film has a fast pace, it is extremely funny and at times very gory thanks to the very impressive practical effects. The film also has lots of action and a clever and unique story to it. And then there is the acting, everyone in the film did a fantastic job including Leo Fafard as Lou and Amy Matysio who plays another deputy. Amy is as beautiful as she is talented and I was quite impressed by her.
'Wolfcop' is one of the most entertaining films I have seen in some time. It is a hilarious gore-fest that delivers on everything it promises, hair-raising fun that had me at the edge of my seat and laughing out loud the entire time. I read that a sequel is in the works and I cannot wait because when the credits began to roll I was left wanting so much more.
Available on DVD and Blu-ray with Special Features that include:
Birth of Wolfcop
Trailers and More
I highly recommend this to lovers of horror and comedy everywhere. Finally I want to congratulate Director, Lowell Dean and his entire cast and crew for bringing fun back to the genre. 'Wolfcop' is truly something special.
