Seven Bloodthirsty Wolfman Clips

9 Comments

I am trying to remember the last decent, back to basics werewolf movie I’ve seen and nothing immediately springs to mind. I mean a werewolf movie has to be set in England. There has to be moors, tweed and really damp people. Also, beautiful English girls are highly desired, straight out of a Jane Eyre novel, fresh and bosomy and completely unaware of the the heaving beast that will stalk them for various eyebrow raising purposes.

It seems that in “The Wolfman”, starring Benicio Del Toro, Anthony Hopkins, Emily Blunt and Hugo Weaving, I will receive my wish. Benicio seems born to play the shaggy beast and Emily Blunt is truly a lovely and tragic figure. Here we have seven video spots for “The Wolfman” sent over by Universal Pictures. Can’t wait to see this one. “The Wolfman” starts Feb 12th.

Endy is a slightly mangy and gristly citizen of the Great White North. He loves movies big time. How big? In Canada, back in the old days in the ice city where he lived, there would just be one theatre that would be allowed to show any given movie. Some of these theatres were not the giganto-plex or mall theatres that we know and love today. No no, these were the kind of theatres where you had to wait Outside to see a movie. When a big moving picture would open in these single theatres, beaver pelt sporting fellas like Endy would have to wait outside in line for hours while fighting off the human hankering giant Polar Bear or packs of Endy knawing timber wolves. Endy is a dedicated movie watcher. Otherwise, Endy loves him a good Moose jerky, football teams with manly names like the Steelers or Vikings and the thawing embrace of his fine German woman. All these things are good. But you know what is best.

    I saw this at a test screening back in October, and let me tell you, WOW!!!!!! It was amazing! It blew my mind how well done the movie was. It updated itself with more blood and gore without being cheesy and losing the soul of the original. Benico was just awesome, and probaly delivered his best role. This movie easily became one of the best Horror films i have seen in a very very long time, and arguably the best remake/reimaging of a classic that i have ever seen. Trust me when i say, no matter what expectations you may have already, you will be surprised at how good this film is. It brings it hard and doesn’t hold back when it comes to blood and gore, so fans of that will be pleasantly surprised. If this film is a sign of what Universal plans on doing with all of its classic horror remakes (i.e Dracula,Frankenstien, and Creature from the black lagoon) then we can expect greatness in the coming future!!

      Dunno if they’re doing all of those again. The Mummy, as cheesey as it was, was the beginning of the Universal renaissance. Unfortunately their next attempt didn’t fair so well with Van Helsing. Now with this the’re going back to the source. Creature from the Black Lagoon I beleive was next but dunno where that stands. An update on Frankenstein wou;d be great, but “Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein” starring Kenneth “I love shakespeare and am directing Thor” Branagh is by far my favorite film version of the story. It got no love though. This looks absolutely amazing though and it’s got two amazing actors in it, Del Toro and Hopkins.

        yep. I too liked Mary shelly’s Frankenstien..everyone seems to forget that one. Who knows what will eventually go down but i do know Universial is planning to do a reimaging of all those great classics. Your right, Creature from the Balck Lagoon was to be next, and the director that was rumored was Guillermo Del Torro, but who knows now…Unversial is probaly goin to wait by the way side and see what the response is to Wolfman before they start poppin off…I love the fact that they started with Wolfman first though. All those reshoots and push backs were for good cause, Unversial proved to me with this film that they really do care about having a quality product before shoving it out there to be had.
