Wolf Moon

Wolf Moon (aka, Dark Moon Rising/2009) is another Twilight (2008) cash-in, this time using a hunky drifter who is really a werewolf instead of a pasty face pin-up vampire. Amy, the small town’s hottest chick, falls for the guy.

Not surprising given that everyone else around the out-of-the-way desert town is a greasy douche bag. No, this guy is sensitive, has muscles (which he used to save her from being sexually assaulted by an aforementioned DB), and drives a smokin’ hot car.

That he’s a man wolf means he gets a little crazy every 30 days, as well. But he craves human flesh instead of ice cream or gummi bears. Meanwhile, the locals are in an uproar as their livestock and some of their tax-paying citizens are being torn apart. And you know what happens when townsfolk get riled up — just ask Dr. Frankenstein.

When Dan does the wolf-up thing, he jumps around and howls at the moon and pretty much looks like a lycandork. But Dan’s wolf dad, an ex-cop whose been chasing him, and the local MILF sheriff and agitated townies are about to come face-to-hair.

There’s more lovey-dovey scenes than gut-ripping. There’s a lot of swearing and Viagra™ jokes instead of gut-ripping. There’s more werewolf posing than gut-ripping. A werewolf flick should always have more gut-ripping than smoochy scenes.

Dark Moon Rising

Always up for a new werewolf movie, but after watching the trailer for the poorly titled Dark Moon Rising (releasing August 4, 2015), I have some reservations. First, the plot…

“A group of shape-shifting werewolves descend upon a small town in search of a girl who is re-born once every 2,000 years. She holds the key to their survival, and all will die who stand in their way.”

Seems reasonable enough. But digital werewolves are not my flea bag. Something about artificial hair and fangs just ain’t cool, man. Even though they self-proclaim Dark Moon Rising as “An American Werewolf in London takes a bite out of Near Dark in this bloody, unique take on The Wolfman legend,” computer generated monsters are suck-o.

P.S. There was another werewolf movie called Dark Moon Rising that came out in 2009. You’d think the filmmakers of the 2015 version would’ve done a bit of homework. But hey, Hollywood – birthplace of the copy machine.

Dreadtime Stories

The upcoming Dreadtime Stories anthology shows more promise, and even sports a werewolf in one of its 10 (!) stories. I watched the trailer; Now that’s some quality fur and fang action. Here’s an overview…

“A party turns bizarre when a malevolent book makes its way into the hands of the attendees who reveal its tales of monsters, madmen and the supernatural…”

Dreatime Stories

Dreadtime Stories features more than 50 cast members, the bulk of which we can only hope will suffer painful and splattery fates for our entertainment. But we’re gonna have to wait a bit to experience the mayhem as Dreadtime Stories isn’t slated to come out until early 2016.

That sucks. Heck, by then I could be converted into a religious nutcase, renounce all my horror movie ways and quit drinking refreshing adult beverages. Just kidding. Not gonna happen. If it did, that would be the scariest horror story of all time.
