Michelle reviews the new horror comedy release, WolfCop.
Unfortunately, the lycanthrope cop drama genre has been ignored for many years. Luckily, Canada comes to our rescue with WolfCop, a horror-comedy about a cop who gets turned into a werewolf and fights crime. Obviously, the premise to this film is ridiculous, but it does make for a hilarious and enjoyable B movie. This will definitely be considered a cult film in ten years or so and will most likely be getting lots of play at midnight theater showings.

The special effects are all done with practical work and for the most part they look great. As any horror fan will tell you, a werewolf movie is only as good as its transformation scene and WolfCop does a decent job, but it’s not on par with An American Werewolf in London. The werewolf make up looks sweet though and it never stops being amusing to see a wolf wearing a cop uniform beating the hell out of people. Where the film shines is in the rest of the incidental gore, as WolfCop mauls the living shit out of everyone he fights. He rips faces off, punches off heads, and rips out throats—it’s truly a sight to behold. It’s always entertaining to see filmmakers use retro techniques in horror flicks.

WolfCop is an uneven film that could have used a little more editing and better writing. This probably would have worked better as a short film than a full length feature. As it is, the latter half of the film is hilarious and worth watching the movie to see. It’s definitely silly and you can tell the filmmakers had a great time making it.
