You know what. I feel like watching a movie with a basis on a classic horror icon/legend. Let’s see. Zombies? Vampires? Werewolves? Ooohhh.. I haven’t seen a good werewolf movie in a while. Let’s see…Cursed. Crap. Well, so much for a good werewolf movie. Oh well. Might as well watch this.
The plot: Jimmy and Ellie are involved in a car wreck and while trying to save the victim of the other car, they are attacked by an animal, which Jimmy claims was a werewolf. They both begin to notice strange things going on with themselves, such as being attracted to the smell of blood. Ellie suspects that her boyfriend, Jake, is a werewolf and he admits it but claims that he isn’t the one killing everyone. When a werewolf attacks Jake, it seems to prove his innocence, but sometimes not everything is what it seems.
Wes Craven has done so many horror movies. He is probably most recognized as directing the Nightmare On Elm Street movies. Close behind them would be the Scream movies. He has done plenty of other horror movies so when I heard he was doing a werewolf movie, I was looking forward to it. I figured if anyone could do a decent werewolf movie, it would be him. Unfortunately, that wasn’t quite the case.
There were some parts of the movie that were decent, but a lot of it was really bad. Christina Ricci’s taunting of the werewolf by saying “she had a bony ass” and the werewolf flicking her off was just bad. The plot was completely unoriginal. The characters had no redeeming qualities. The special effects were good in some scenes but other than that, there was really nothing about this movie to make it worth noticing.
So if you want to watch a werewolf movie, go watch The Howling, or even the classic Wolfman. But if you want to watch this, be sure to have some alcohol on hand.
