President Wolfman

No doubt the scariest horror show these days is the horrific battle for the Presidency during this 2016 election year. Regardless who wins, the outcome is far too frightening to contemplate. So much so, this moved satirist Patton Oswalt to post on Facebook™ (August, 2016): “We are living in a horror movie written by comedians and performed by maniacs using megaphones…”

Too bad politicians aren’t allowed to use machetes and hockey masks.

That said, if you haven’t chosen a side, may I offer a few liberal party alternates: President Wolfman (2012), An American Werewolf in Washington (2013) and the schlock classic, Werewolf of Washington (1973).

President Wolfman

President Wolfman (great title) rigs the election like this: “The President of the United States has been bitten by a werewolf and is loose on the streets of Washington on a killing rampage! This comedy/horror/political satire is also a ‘green movie,’ created entirely out of recycled stock and public domain film footage culled from over one hundred grainy government instructional shorts, classroom education movies, vintage stag reels and features that have fallen out of copyright as well as from the favor of the public.”

Awesomely patriotic.

An American Werewolf In Washington

As for An American Werewolf in Washington, it looks like this is a fan-made fake movie advertisement. Nevertheless, it has my vote.

Werewolf of Washington

Werewolf of Washington, however, is unlike anything you’ll ever see, depicting scenes of the President ripping people apart and sniffing butts. Not Republican butts, though. That’s some big time stinky.

You have your candidates – now stuff it up your ballot box.

Wolf-Man For President

The Werewolf of Washington

Jack Whittier, the President’s aide, is sent to Hungary for no other reason that it’s there. While making his way back to the airport to get the hell out of that smell-infested country, his car is run off the road and he’s bitten by a wolf, which we later find out was a gosh-darn werewolf.

Once back in Washington, Jack turns into a marauding, suit-wearing lycanthrope and kills a few people that probably deserved it. (One attack has him on top of a woman’s car at a brightly-lit gas station. Fortunately, no one saw him.)

As luck would have it there are five nights of full moons. Jack’s gooning out and trying to tell everyone he’s the werewolf in the news that’s been biting people. No one believes him. I do, though. When he changes into a silver-haired werewolf in his apartment, he crawls around on all fours and bites the lamp. That’s OK – it was probably a stupid lamp.

The Werewolf of Washington

In a really confusing plot deviation, wolfman Jack (Hey, I just got that!) makes his way into the White House basement where he encounters the dwarf, Dr. Kiss (no relation to the popular musical ensemble) who’s been experimenting on bodies. Jack sniffs the doctor’s butt and licks his face. This causes the doc to laugh, even though it probably wasn’t in the script.

And speaking of, there are so many laughably bad scenes in The Werewolf of Washington (1973), you have to see it to believe it. Great dialogue, too, as Jack, who’s been boinking the President’s daughter, tells her with a straight face, “I think your father is a cross between Abe Lincoln and Jesus Christ.” Man, you can’t even write lines that good anymore.

The President swears numerous times and eventually gets bitten by Jack. Let’s just say the Pentagon is now the Pentagram. Heh.
