There are a number of horror sub-genres that have been done to death (no pun intended). The ones that come to mind right away are, of course, zombie flicks, any found footage type of supernatural film, vampires, and werewolves. With that said, however, it is still possible, although rare, for a film that revolves around any of that stuff to come out and be somewhat original. Enter Paul Hyett and his latest flick. Howl is not only original, but it [...]
There have been plenty of times that I’ve searched Google for “the top 10 werewolf movies” in hopes of finding that hidden gem of a were flick that I may have missed. Those lists always seemed to contain the same flicks — An American Werewolf in London, The Howling, etc. — and I never really found anything new or exciting. The more digging I did, however, the more I learned of how deep the wolfman sub-genre actually is. [...]
Hot off the heels of a great werewolf flick, comes another review dealing with the wolfman sub-genre. In general, I try to stay away from films that have overly silly titles or plots, but occasionally, depending on my mood, will give one a shot.

Since its release in 1941, countless imitations and re-imaginings have failed to capture what made that film in particular so mesmerizing the first time we saw it. Whether it is the absolute terror we felt watching the wolf man stalk his victims or it was our [...]
I had to take a little bit of a hiatus because I hadn’t watched anything noteworthy lately. With a trip to my local used movie shop, I found a copy of William Brent Bell’s Wer. I remembered the trailer, so I was ridiculously excited to watch it and spread the good word. Once I got home and was sure that no one would interrupt the good time I was about to have, I let the movie roll.
I have [...]
Cat People Review
I’ve always loved werewolf movies, so naturally I would be attracted to any film involving these creatures in any way. While Paul Schrader’s Cat People is more concerned with cats than wolves, it is still a great entry in the ‘were’ subgenre and has more going for it than just your average tear-em-up creature flick.
There’s more to this 1982 werecat film than may be apparent on the surface. While it does contain the elements you’ve come to expect in [...]
