The story was flat out bad. Especially when you found out his secret. The longer build-up also forces the film into less, and shorter, action scenes as well. Like when he brings home the first girl and takes her upstairs and Loren can see them through her window. I enjoyed the movie and found it to be fun and exciting. The werewolf guy is hot, the girl is pretty, she's got an annoying brother and the chicken delivery guy is hot for her. The film's really deliberate pacing also produces the fact, and with a couple horror scenes spread throughout the plot allow it to use them in building up the mystery.
This, of course, is due to the film's biggest flaw, the slow-building mystery. Nobody will believe the kid. Her little brother Kyle is taken with this motorcycle riding newcomer. Being underage, Lauren shouldn't even be in a gun shop, picking out any kind of weapon, even though she is with the chicken-delivery boy. In most films, werewolves are portrayed as hungry, psychotic animals that just wish to rip the hell out of everything and everyone in its' path. This is really great, packed with action and fun confrontations, a couple moments of suspense and some more bloodshed thrown in.
Movies like Never Cry Werewolf don't help--not at all. It is dominated by some of the most God awful films you'll ever see. In a more ambitious flick any deficits in the actors performance might have shown, but that was not the case here. I just want to point out a few common traits of all these Canuck film bombs. Sometimes you have an idea in your head and you can see it so vividly, but end up having to compromise because someone else is footing the bill. First note that I have different scales for Sci-Fi Channel Originals and regular movies - an 8 for this movie does not mean the same as an 8 for what you would go to the theaters to see. Throughout the film, I began to feel that something was missing and wanted to see more interactions between Jared and Lauren.
It was released on 11 May 2008. Then on she finds herself discovering that he is a werewolf and he's after her. I thought the scene where Lauren is in the gun shop looking for weapons and a fight erupts, involving Jared's dog, is just too far-fetched and kind of ridiculous. Don't try to make what you can't afford the budget for. I'm certain this will not be the only review of this film that will declare this, but this film, while enjoyable by the standards set by Sci-Fi channel movies, is one of the most unabashed rip-offs of a film I have ever seen. In any event, her role is too small. For that matter, why didn't his mom, his sister, or anyone else? The plot structure is rather similar, as the differences go to some certain key factors being switched about and having a witless script tagged to it.
When Angie and her boyfriend get killed, she tries to tell the police detectives but nobody believes her. The basic premise of this movie had potential: a supernatural being coincidentally finds a young woman who is a doppleganger for his dead soul mate. I give it 3 out of 10, for those who are novices to the genre it might be Worth watching, but for the lovers of vampire and werewolf Movies it is a total waste of time. The effects in the movie were actually quite good, well aside from the transformation of the demonic familiar; which just looked awful. What more do you want from a low-budget werewolf flick? I see other reviews are hip to the mind numbing mediocrity of Canadian movie industry output by the low scores this pointless flick got. I hope your next film is better and not another nail in the coffin of this genre. Although everyone else around her takes an instant shine to him, she has a nagging feeling about him that she thinks isn't right.
The fact that the film decides to hold off the werewolf until the end is something that is a crime, since the design is so great and memorable, that not being able to see it during the film is a real shame. Some of them, consisting of attacks that are witnessed from afar, are quite well with the several on the prostitutes early on being really good, and once it moves away, either out into the neighborhood or to the hardware store, it doesn't get worse with some top-notch action displayed in both scenes. The special effects weren't horrible, although I don't understand why the werewolf always breathed and drooled all over the intended victims for extended periods until they managed to get away. This brings me to my next point. One by one, each party-goer begins to show signs of poisoning as the rest of the group searches frantically for the antidote in a disturbing and shocking sequence of events that will leave you speechless. Those are worth the money to go see in theaters, however, this movie, isn't worth the money you pay for cable.
Peter Stebbings' portrayal of the werewolf was perfect. Not enough gore for my liking, really its like Fright Night but with a werewolf the new neighbour arrives other neighbour gets suspicious reports the neighbour police search home find nowt the bad neighbour grabs in this case the brother and girl finds ally to help slay the werewolf the rest is history. It wasn't great acting, but they're fitting by having fun and it shows in the film's energy. Its a shame that everyone couldn't have been on the same page because there are times when the film has flashes of the minor horror masterpiece this could have been. To anyone else reading, I say this.
If not skip it because there are far better movies to waste your time on. The only help is the hormone-filled Steven. Well, because the movie isn't scary, nor is it gory, but it has elements of adventure, fantasy, action and light horror to it. I bring this up because this movie was the bail of hay which broke this camel's back. The last bit here that works is the werewolf design, suggesting a powerful, intimidating creature with a massive build, large claws, huge fangs and a really memorable-looking snout, giving it more of wolf-like look than most other designs. You can tell right away that he is interested in her and thinks she was someone he knew a long time before. With no faith in the authorities Salah disposes of the body in the one place he knows best… the kebabs.
Messaging, always political messaging — in this bomb there was the inevitable scagging of all the urban centric political bogey men - firearms, hunters, males and hunting. Don't sell yourself short and make a movie like this. Movie Essentials like script, acting, directing and casting are basically missing in this production besides Beautiful Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev. Acum, deși trăiește la o jumătate de glob distanță, Vivian Gandillon Agnes Bruckner încă aleargă. The most pressing, but not-detrimental case against this one is the fact that the beginning of this is played out straight from other films nearly verbatim, and the fact that it's done in such a way allows it to be so obvious that it's ripping them off is something that will put some off. It had its' moments and those moments kept me watching. The people these low budget directors recruit from college drama clubs are unskilled, stiff and of course juvenile.
