One of my Favorite Werewolf Films, Despite the Rating
16 July 2012
Excerpt: The Wolfman is not the film that it could have been. It also was not as bad as people have been making it out to be. After seeing it, I did understand why alot of people hated it so much, and why it took forever to get production done, but I don't completely agree.
Excerpt: The Wolfman 2010 amps up the blood & guts and turns the Universal Classics monster into a full blown horrific beast. The production of the movie was plagued with issues, re-shoots and shelved for 2 years before it finally got released. However the movie is not as bad as many may think.
Disappointed but it was great to watch at the weekend

Excerpt: Here goes the long delayed of my reviews on the films watched couple of weeks ago. Starting off with The Wolfman Blu-ray Review. The film is presented with a consistently dark and gloomy sequences which are meant to be ; i guess. Black levels are strong.
Excerpt: An American returns to England after learning of his brother’s death. Upon returning, a Werewolf bites him and his life is drastically altered. Now cursed into turning into a Werewolf on every full moon Lawrence is out of control, causing mayhem and death everywhere he goes.
A strong video and reference audio presentation from what plays out as

Excerpt: Movie: 3.5/5 I first saw this film in cinemas several months ago and found myself underwhlmed. The reason wasn't what was there, it was what was laking, there was little to no time spent letting you know who the characters where and why they acted in the way they did.
Loved this Film! A true "horror" movie, like the way they Used to mak

Excerpt: Watched this earlier today (6/8/10) and I Thoroughly ENJOYED this Film! It harkens back to the classic Scary movies of yesteryear, when we were kids watching the Lon Chaney Jr. (the Original WOLFMAN from 1941), Boris Karloff, & Bela Legosi Horror films of a time long ago (mostly from the early 20's...
Excerpt: The movie in my opinion was very entertaining, the story really never slowed down. The small plot twist were obvious but didn't take away from the movie. I like the old school style looking wolfman, I believe Rick Baker did the make up for this movie. Overall enjoyable.
Classic Monster Tale Given A Dramatic, Atmospheric Remake
1 June 2010
Excerpt: This re-make of the Wolfman has received far more negative criticism than it deserves (IMHO). Many critics complained that it took too long to get going and gets bogged down in its own story. With the director's cut, the monster isn't even seen until the 1 hour mark.
Summary: Being in the late 50's in age, I grew up on Universal horror and truly love the originals. But I have to say this remake exceeded my expectations. There are many suspenseful moments and the movie makers seem to have a clear grasp of what the objective was.
