Twilight Fan Might Prove Bella is Part Werewolf!

"Could this Twilight fan theory prove that Bella is actually part werewolf?"

Darkness.com ☥'s insight:

This is actually pretty good. It does explain a lot about Bella, her creepy irresistible stank fumes that seduced poor, poor Edward, the pregnancy thing, --and so on and so forth. Lots of weird coincidences. I mean, we are supposed to believe that Bella is this super-duper special vampire, --she's a shield for other vampires, --like an evolutionary baseball helmet.


It just seems like there should be more to it than that, --and this fan theory claims that there is, --and the evidence to back up the theory is practically irrefutable. So... who's on the boat? Is Bella just "special" or is she part werewolf?

Watch The Official 'Batman: Arkham Knight' Trailer - "All Who Follow You"

Coming June 23, 2015, Batman: Arkham Knight is the epic conclusion to the Rocksteady Batman: Arkham Trilogy. For the first time ever, watch Batman: Arkham Kn...
Darkness.com ☥'s insight:

I'm always honest with you guys, and this is me, just telling it like it is again... I started playing the Batman: Arkham Trilogy a while ago, but I couldn't get into it, and I have an excellent reason: it's just Assassin's Creed in different colors. I love the Batman-storyline and the Batman frenzy that the whole world has kicked into, but at the same time, I could never get into the whole, "Romg, let's play Arkham!" thing. 


The mechanics of the game bore me, and all the swinging around everywhere, drives me insane. One of the games recently released with similar mechanics is Shadow of Mordor --the different is that the parkour aspect is played down, and the other aspect, suching as entering a stealthier mode of attack, is stronger. Too much parkour, too many directional options, can make moving a character around a lot harder. I'm ready for less gravity, gamers, what can I say?

New Supernatural Creatures Never Seen Before Coming To Season 5 'Teen Wolf' [Video]

Teen Wolf has finally received a premiere date of June 29. And the good news doesn’t end there. Not only will the show be returning, but the opener will be a
Darkness.com ☥'s insight:

To my hairy and mangy friends, rejoice now because season 5 of Teen Wolf now has a set release date and it looks like there's actually things and stuff happening. Fans have been pawing at the door for more Teen Wolf since Season 4 ended last Fall and it looks like the end of their wait is in sight....until it's time for Season 6. 


Jeff Davis (Showrunner) has already slowly but surely meted out some details about the new season coming out this Summer. Basically, be on the lookout for the characters we know now getting some more backstory and new characters being introduced as half the cast is apparently moving on to actual movies, plus more supernatural creatures. Is this the season where Vampires are introduced? Maybe. How about some perverse bastardization of science like Frankenstein? Possibly. All we know for sure is they're doing something totally new. So if you're a Teen....or a Wolf...or some combination of the two, set your DVRs for Season 5 of Teen Wolf.

Joss Whedon Explains Why The Hulk is a Werewolf & Why He Shouldn't Have His Own Movie

Joss Whedon Explains Why The Hulk is a Werewolf & Why He Shouldn't Have His Own Movie | Werewolves | Scoop.it
Joss Whedon shares his thoughts on what it would take to bring a Hulk solo movie back to the big screen.
Darkness.com ☥'s insight:

Alright Hulk fans, I know it's not going to be something you'll like but I have call shenanigans on recent comments by Joss Whedon. Yeah, I know, how dare I question the infallible Joss Whedon? Well I kinda think someone is right when they actually finish a trilogy they started. 


I don't agree with Joss' sentiment that Hulk is a werewolf story because in common lycanthrope lore, the wolf inside is an affliction, a virus that contorts the dominant personality into nothing but a incommunicable killing machine whereas with Hulk it's a lot deeper than that. It's much closer to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. You can even argue whether or not the dominant personality is Bruce Banner or The Hulk, there's been multiple discussion in the comics that bring that possibility, that maybe Hulk has been in there the whole time and the gamma bomb brought him, as far I've read or seen in werewolf lore, nobody argues that the wolf was already there inside someone.


Furthermore, he further gets to actual point Planet Hulk and why they won't make it, and the answer is simply that we most likely won't see a Planet Hulk feature film solely for political reasons because of who owns the rights and how much a CGI intensive movie like that would cost. Chances are we'll be stuck with the excellent, albeit watered down animated feature of the same name. Either way, be sure to check out Hulk in his next outing in Age of Ultron coming out May 1st.

Teen Wolf: Netflix Giveth, and Netflix Taketh Away

Teen Wolf: Netflix Giveth, and Netflix Taketh Away | Werewolves | Scoop.it

"Teen Wolf is no longer on Netflix. The Viacom contract restructuring had many casualties, one of which happened to be Teen Wolf."

Darkness.com ☥'s insight:

But WAIT! Actually, you can still stream the series on Amazon Prime, to the best of my knowledge anyway, --which is cheaper than Netflix, often has the same stuff (plus more) as Netflix, and! you get the benefit of getting free two-day shipping so yeah. The only drawback to Amazon Prime streaming is that trying to find anything on there is a huge pain in the ass, and it never works right on my PS4.... luckily, it works fine on my PS3, so... win. 


Anyway, all this rambling has been about the fact that I had no idea you couldn't still watch Teen Wolf, the series, on Netflix! But I do know, for a fact, that this week, at least according to IMDB that Teen Wolf, the movie, is returning to the Netflix line-up. Woot! That's the original, with Mike Fox, and so on. Anyway, I've been looking for an excuse to re-watch this movie for a while, so I'm pretty stoked. It's not live yet, so give it a couple days... I should think that by Friday, it should be up and ready to go. Woot! So... how many of you guys are gonna watch it?

An American Werewolf in Paris & 4 Other Sequels Everyone Hated But Me

An American Werewolf in Paris & 4 Other Sequels Everyone Hated But Me | Werewolves | Scoop.it

"...shoddy digital effects and no atmosphere whatsoever. Blech!"

Darkness.com ☥'s insight:

So, Paul Blart sucked, and why they made a sequel I’ll never know, but that’s why the subject came up for our blogger. Apparently they were sort of forced to sit through it, and for that, said blogger has my deepest sympathy, because no force on earth could have made me sit through the first one, let alone watch a sequel to that stupid shit. I’m more of an Observe and Report kinda gal. Anyway, apparently that session of video and audio torment inspired a raining down of hate for a bunch of great, albeit, universally disliked sequels…


But I draw the line at An American Werewolf in Paris! When I was little, or at least, littler, this was one of my favorite werewolf movies ever. It was actually scary, it had sex on Jim Morrison’s grave, --which I think he would have wanted, --and there was great music, and boobs, which I admit was a big draw. And that hate extends to other classic not-so-great sequels that were still a ton of fun, like Grease 2… I loved Grease 2. Come on. Michelle Pfeiffer? Don’t hate her cuz you ain’t her! Does anyone else think that maybe An American Werewolf in Paris wasn’t as bad as everyone say…? Am I just weird? Check out the rest of the hate parade on the source site!

Real Werewolves Talk About Their Struggles on ExperienceProject

Real Werewolves Talk About Their Struggles on ExperienceProject | Werewolves | Scoop.it

"I am a werewolf and I have been trying to find a way to give all you real werewolves out there some info on werewolves..."  

Darkness.com ☥'s insight:

I get sort of weirded out over the idea of teenagers who believe that they are really werewolves. I feel the same way about "real" vampires; supporting these sort of subculture movements seems more like rooting for people to sink into deeper states of neuroses or get worse cases of schizophrenia. It doesn't really seem healthy, like, for anyone's mental state to believe that they are werewolves. In fact, there is a term for it: "Clinical lycanthropy". As for "real vampires", --the ones who believe they have powers, can shapeshift, etc., --that seems like equally disturbing behaviour, and I also have to wonder, where the parents are when their children are off going to school wearing werewolf tails and so on?


The reason for my concern for people who have trouble distinguishing reality from fiction is the recent case of Mark Andrews, 51, found guilty of first degree murder. He believed his neighbor was a vampire: my concern is that, given the same amount of time for mental illness to foster and spiral further, with the support network of family and friends legitimizing this behavior as part of their personality and their identity, where will these teens be in another 35 years? I don't pretend to believe that all of them won't grow out of the fixation, and I don't believe all "real" vampires are mentally ill, --in fact, both subcultures have really normal, average people in them. My concern is that percentage who have the potential to eventually take it too far.

Huge Werewolf Run 'Bloodrunner' in Maylaysia, July 2015

Huge Werewolf Run 'Bloodrunner' in Maylaysia, July 2015 | Werewolves | Scoop.it

FORGET Edward Cullen, Team Jacob is where the party’s at (the Twilight series desecrated the vampire mythology but did have a great werewolf ambassador in Taylor Lautner’s Jacob Black). 

Darkness.com ☥'s insight:

Bloodrunner is going to be like, a huge international event organized by a local agency in Putrajaya, Sw1tch Strategies; there are 5,000 spots open for runners, and will be held as the first ever werewolf race. It's also going to be a long one; racers will be running a 10 kilometer route, with theatrical werewolf elements, --monsters jumping out and scaring --or at least trying to scare, --the runners into motivation. I mean... everyone is always saying, "I only run when someone's chasing me," --well, here we go. Werewolves are going to chase you... or you can dress as a werewolf, and do the chasing. 


And hey, if you choose not to do any running, there is still going to be a huge werewolf-y themed festival grounds being set up near the route. There are more details, and it's going to be a really awesome event, with a lot of global participants. If you have the money to go to Malaysia in July to race with werewolves... well, can you think of a better way to spend it?

Watch WolfCop on Netflix!

"Here Comes The Fuzz... "

Darkness.com ☥'s insight:

Yay, it's on Netflix! We posted this trailer a while back, and I remember saying like, "Okay, so, it looks cheesy but after watching the trailer..." and bla bla bla. I know, but the thing is, I don't usually get down on werewolf comedy, --I actually find it a bit insulting to the genre like, "Oh yeah, vampires --let's make a shit-ton of movies about them... and then let's make a few really derpy movies about werewolves." I mean, that's how it seems. Then, like I said earlier, I watched the trailer, and it doesn't really make fun of werewolves as much as it makes fun of redneck cops.


Sure, there's bad effects, but that's balanced out by some pretty gnarly gore scenes, --and yeah, it is a horror comedy that sort of mocks the werewolf genre, --but I can get over that because some parts are legitimately funny. Like, my favorite line from the trailer is, "yeah, but you were drunk, so I knew it was you." Dude, you know you're in bad shape when your drunken state basically betrays you even when you're in wolf-mode. Check it out on Netflix, --I know I will, then report back and tell us what you thought!

'When Animals Dream' So... Werewolf or What?

Nar Dyrene Drømmer - First international trailer for When Animals Dream, a new werewolf tale that follows "a young girl who is hunted down by those living in...
Darkness.com ☥'s insight:

So, this girl living in a small coastal village in Sweden, basically grows up with everyone around her knowing that at some point, she's going to turn into something... and it has something to do with her mother, or at least her maternal genes anyway, since her dad seems fine. Apparently, when puberty sets in, she's warned by her doctor that she'll starting growing more hair, become more aggressive, and he warns her that she'll have to be medicated. I assume this is to keep her from doing pretty odd things... like breaking off chunks of drinking glasses with her teeth, and then crunching on them...


At some point, of course, she decides to roam freely, and her father warns her that there's nothing he can do to protect if she leaves. The villagers appear to want to hunt her down at that juncture, but! throughout the trailer, and throughout the narrative for the trailer, we never seen any actual transformation. It's almost like a much more tame, young adult teen girl aimed version of the movie Wer --which was pretty excellent. So are we just looking at a really long metaphor for puberty/young adulthood... or is this a real werewolf movie? We'll be checking out soon, to let you know!

Bloodborne Guide: How to Complete Eileen the Crow's NPC Quest Line

Bloodborne Guide: How to Complete Eileen the Crow's NPC Quest Line | Werewolves | Scoop.it
Eileen the Crow is one of the few allies you can find in Bloodborne. Here is a guide to show you how to properly complete her quest line.
Darkness.com ☥'s insight:

It's been a few days since we reported anything about Bloodborne, which means I know you're all probably hungry to hear a little more about game that's getting rave reviews, pretty much everywhere, for its awesome graphics and insanely difficult playthrough. But there has been a little bit of confusion, like, here's an example: do any of you remember that mission in Skyrim where you have to solve a series of murders in Windhelm, --Blood on Ice? Things like that can happen in Fallout: 3 and in New Vegas too, --it's all part of the joy of bouncing around in different missions.


The same shit can happen in Bloodborne, which is why the fine people on TwinFinite have developed a goal by goal plan on how to get through the quests with Eileen the Crow. It's important to secure a decent working relationship with her since she's one of very few allies, --the game is already hard enough, --and you need all the help you can get with the whole, not-dying-every-five-minutes-or-less thing. Check out the source article, and I don't need to tell you there are spoilers, because DUH.

'Beast' by Todd Michael Cox: Not Your Average Werewolf Story

'Beast' by Todd Michael Cox: Not Your Average Werewolf Story | Werewolves | Scoop.it

"There are no full moons, no curses, no silver bullets."

Darkness.com ☥'s insight:

The story isn't even really about the werewolf; it's about his uncle. Cox basically describes a sort of supernatural melodrama, a soap opera about living in rural Wisconsin; I've lived there, and personally I don't think the people up there could be described as being all that complex. Largely, the families and communities I experienced were full of simple, hardworking people that managed to be both honest, and friendly. But sure, you know, I guess that there could be a bunch of werewolf-harboring conspirators too.


The story follows Andy, a newspaper editor in a small town who's hiding a big secret: his nephew is a werewolf. Harboring that secret effects everyone around Andy, --his relationships with his girlfriend, his family, co-workers, and friends. Though Cox doesn't believe in cryptozoological reports of werewolves, such as the legendary reports of the Beast of Bray Road, it was this story that initially inspired him. He doesn't reveal any spoilers, but says the book is full of secrets... lots of intrigue. My interest is piqued, despite Cox saying he deliberately hid from the horror genre... I need a new werewolf book that isn't about crime solving or romance. How about you?

Bloodborne is Going to Kick Your Ass... And You're Going to Like It

Bloodborne is Going to Kick Your Ass... And You're Going to Like It | Werewolves | Scoop.it

"The werewolves, zombies, giants, and giant werewolf zombies are meticulously built and thoroughly creepy, to a one." 

Darkness.com ☥'s insight:

I'm so excited about getting this game... I'll get it eventually, I never buy games new, because they're too expensive. I wait till I can get them at GameStop, --that does mean I miss release parties sometimes, but that's okay. Not too many nerds out this way anyhow. I've heard nothing but good things from everyone I know who's played it, --and even though I'm not entirely sure what a giant werewolf zombie is, I know that I can probably kill if it given a few dozen chances.


On the other hand, I'm kind of scared to get it too. I have a tendency to rage-quit... but what's worse than my rage quitting, is my roommate's controller snapping. He's gone through six controllers, and right now, we only have one good one. If he breaks my PS3 controller, I'll have to kill him. Nope, I'm definitely still excited. I haven't been scared by a game since Dead Space and Dead Space 2, so I'm more than ready to see something disturbing. Have any of y'all played it yet?

Does Bloodborne Make Up For The Order: 1886?

Does Bloodborne Make Up For The Order: 1886? | Werewolves | Scoop.it
It's bloody and it's marvellous - even when you're dead
Darkness.com ☥'s insight:

There isn't as much werewolf action in Bloodborne, --but to be fair, most of The Order: 1886 was supposed to be a story that revolved around werewolf hunting and from what I understand from the numerous disappointed reviews... the werewolf fights and scenes were pitifully scarce. On the other hand, in Bloodborne, you fight against werewolf-y shaped monsters right away, and even risk becoming one after consuming too much impure blood, --and then being tracked down and killed.


The game is immersive, --and this is a good review, lots of pictures, keeping it fresh and sexy. The graphics look a little dodgy, but overall, it's a pleasing view. I think if it was just a little cleaner on the scenery, with maybe softened angles here and there, they could be better. And you know it's in the same thread as the Dark Souls, and Demon Souls games... so expect to die. A lot.

A New Classic Monster Mashup: 'The Call of the Wild Werewolf' by Jack London & Carl Waters

A New Classic Monster Mashup: 'The Call of the Wild Werewolf' by Jack London & Carl Waters | Werewolves | Scoop.it

"...Buck Miller, the son of a wealthy judge and raisin farmer, pursues gold riches in the Klondike. Before he reaches his destination, Buck is kidnapped by vampires, turned into a werewolf, and forced to work as the vampire's sled dog."

Darkness.com ☥'s insight:

Deciding to leave his easy life in Santa Clara Valley, Buck Miller, the son of a wealthy judge and raisin farmer, pursues gold riches in the Klondike. Before he reaches his destination, Buck is kidnapped by vampires, turned into a werewolf, and forced to work as the vampire's sled dog.Bummer; what sucks more than being not only a vampire slave? A vampire slave that has to actually work his ass off in an active positive that requires a lot of running and work... what sucks more than that? Working a lot, while in werewolf form, and constantly having to run with the other denizens of the wolf community in the Klondike region. 

 

I don't generally like this new trend in taking classic novels of romance and adventure, and then turning them into paranormal fiction; like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies for existence. And of course, who could forget, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter. Lamer movies and books are not known at this time, but don't worry. We at Werewolves are especially observant and won't shove mediocrity down your throat every chance we get. Check of the blurb on the source and tell me: would you read it?

Quiz for the Ladies: Who Is Your Werewolf Boyfriend? | Werewolves | Scoop.it

"Who Is Your Werewolf Boyfriend?"

Darkness.com ☥'s insight:

So, I didn't get Jacob Black, for starters, --personally, I think he has anger management issues that will probably lead to spousal abuse issues at some point, and that's totally not my thing. I was a bit disappointed not to get Alcide Herveaux, because holy shit, who wouldn't want that big thing, following them around and forgiving you for practically anything, including being addicted to crystal meth, trying to kill you, and joining a pack of psychotic, vampire blood drinking, werewolf sociopaths? Yeah...


But based on the answers to my questions, I got Oz, --you know, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Which is totally cool, I can live with that, --and they say Seth Green isn't hot, which I disagree with, because more importantly, he is funny and pretty damn sharp. It's hard for me to deal with people who have the same capacity for wit as a pop tart, so I'm glad I got him.

Reboot of "The Howling" On Its Way?!

Reboot of "The Howling" On Its Way?! | Werewolves | Scoop.it

""The Howling" was a 1981 werewolf-themed horror film directed by Joe Dante, who also directed "Gremlins." Made for $1.5 million, the movie went on to gross $18 million in its initial theatrical release." 

Darkness.com ☥'s insight:

Grab your Wolfsbane and silver everyone because there's going to be reboot of the classic werewolf flick, The Howling which is a very big deal considering the original series was a big success resulting in 8 feature films. The sequels were a bit on the weird side, but the first one is still classic horror, and if anything could be said about the rest of the franchise, it's that they were a perfect example of classic, schlocky horror. And at least none of them involved werewolves in da hood. 


At this time there's no specific time frame when the reboot is supposed to be released but there's already a howling demand for more (see what I did there?) If you want a fix of lycanthropic love, be sure to start at the original film and work your way up. We'll be updating as information comes out.

'A Werewolf Boy' is Now on Netflix!

"Summoned by an unexpected phone call, an elderly woman visits the country cottage she lived in as a child. Memories of an orphan boy she knew... come flooding back to her."

Darkness.com ☥'s insight:

I know this is going to sound absolutely awful, but I really wish Korean TV was as good as Korean movies. In terms of films, they are amazing; often artistic and beautifully filmed, and A Werewolf Boy is no exception. The trailer above is okay, but it doesn't do that much to really set much of a tone. The film is told in retrospect, from the memories of an older woman, Suni; when she gets a phone call and must travel back to Korea, to a large country home she lived in with her widowed mother and siblings. The mother reveals to a bunch of completely uncouth neighbors, that they had to move for Suni, because she has something wrong with her lungs, which prevents her from attending school.


The house her family moved into was the home of an old man, say the neighbors, who had a heart attack, and kept a bunch of wolves or wild dogs in the barn, because he was doing some sort of study on them. Suni hears a noise in the barn, goes to investigate... and finds the 'werewolf boy' crouched in the barn. Fair warning, y'all the werewolf effects aren't great, but that's about the only thing that detracts from the film. Check it out, and let us know what you think in the comments.

The "Werewolf" Mikhail Popkov is Supported By His Family Despite Confession

The "Werewolf" Mikhail Popkov is Supported By His Family Despite Confession | Werewolves | Scoop.it
The 'Werewolf' serial killer used axes, knives and screwdrivers to murder women in a bid to 'cleanse' his town of prostitutes
Darkness.com ☥'s insight:

The serial killer known as the "Werewolf" --for his intensely brutal murders, including decapitation, removal of the heart, murder with an axe, among others, of 22 women, --has a very supportive family. His daughter, his wife, and his mother all agree that there's no way he could be a serial killer. Despite the fact that his detailed confession not only describes his motives, if not his methods, for killing all the women. There was also DNA evidence, and that was after nearly every single police officer in his precinct had been screened.


His daughter wants to study to be a criminologist so she can prove her father's innocence, his wife says if he was released, that he could just go right on living there as normal. His mother doesn't believe he did anything, but then expresses minimal doubt by asking why he would do such a thing... which he later addresses by confessing to killing the women, and why he eventually stopped, --he caught a venereal disease, and lost the urge to rape and murder women after he became impotent because of the complications with the disease.

Can Players Turn Into Werewolves in ‘Bloodborne’?

Can Players Turn Into Werewolves in ‘Bloodborne’? | Werewolves | Scoop.it
A rumor based on old wiki entries, item descriptions, and in-game animations is convincing some players that 'Bloodborne' characters can transform into werewolves.
Darkness.com ☥'s insight:

Do you want the short answer? Maybe there isn't one... Some rumors are true, as the source points out; if you beat Metroid fast enough, Samus takes off her armor, --but there probably isn't a jetpack hidden anywhere in San Andreas, and Lara Croft never gets naked. Bloodborne is terrific, and now, let the rumors, theories, and in-game mystery-searching commence! Rumors aren't entirely unfounded, and the searching for deeper, hidden systems and secrets are not that crazy.


The studio, From Software, is notorious for being ambiguous about what may or may not be allowed to happen in-game, and they do hide tidbits and information in the game. And so naturally, the rumors start circulating that Bloodborne's hunters are werewolves, because the game and its mythos do have plenty of werewolves, --and the implications throughout the game of the Hunters' being beasts are endless, --there are partial transformations after consuming Beast Pellets, the Hunters' limbs turning into claws, a mysterious illness being treated with the blood of infected beasts... we need more players, delving into the Bloodborne universe, --so just hang in there guys, eventually, some ubernerd is going to unravel everything you ever wanted to know about the game and its dirty little secrets.

Darkness.com ☥'s insight:

There’s actually a really cool story behind the new monster; the kid playing the first Slaugh to appear in the show is Mike Lynch, who landed the role through the Make-a-Wish foundation; he’s only 16, so maybe his wish was to be a monster in a TV show. Additionally, Jessica Short, the woman behind the design of the monster, was a winner in Teen Wolf’s creature design contest. You can see some of her concept art by visiting the source. Both of them are definitely very talented individuals, and it will be super cool to see Lynch, wearing Short’s designs.


The mythology behind the Sluagh, isn’t exactly historically accurate; in Irish and Scottish mythology, particularly of the Celtic variety, the Sluagh appeared in flying hordes, like birds. They were considered destructive, and appeared within the homes of the dying, and sometimes took the souls of the innocent. In the show, the Sluagh devour souls and leave behind parts of their own, malignant souls, inside their victims. Fun!

Klavan's Werewolf Thriller Doesn't Deliver Much Respect for Women

Klavan's Werewolf Thriller Doesn't Deliver Much Respect for Women | Werewolves | Scoop.it
Andrew Klavan's werewolf tale bounds along at a thrilling pace, but its treatment of women and its repetitive tics dull what could have been a sharp narrative bite.
Darkness.com ☥'s insight:

The story sounds good, --we reported on an interview with the author a little while ago. And I said I would still read the book, despite the author's narrow-minded and arrogant opinion on what are the "only two" good werewolf movies; the old Wolfman and An American Werewolf in London. Sorry dude, there are more werewolf movies out there that are good. And FYI, wait to go with the two most obvious choices you could think of. I also challenge this perspective that the scariest thing about werewolves is being one. Sorry, but the scariest thing about werewolves, is being chased around and then eaten by one. 


Anyway, apparently, his take on women in equally arrogant; the wife is pure, the mistress is a whore, the woman who knows about werewolves is an ugly old hag who repeatedly issues a "Germanic shrug" --a phrase used more than once, when... once was all that was necessary,  his boss is the annoying matron character... Apparently, his prose is repetitive in other ways as well. I still -might- read it, but I'm not half as enthused as I was before.

An American Werewolf in London & 9 Other Movies We Want to See in 3D!

An American Werewolf in London & 9 Other Movies We Want to See in 3D! | Werewolves | Scoop.it

"Whether you’re in the eyes of the wolf himself, or if you’re weaving in and out of a nightmare state, an even more immersive cinematic experience would be a nice new lens on such a familiar genre classic."

Darkness.com ☥'s insight:

I think they're crazy, personally... I just don't see why this movie would be good in 3D --there aren't a lot of moments in the movie where you have to be worried about projectiles or flying objects... reaching hands or the kind of stuff that would look really good in 3D. On the other hand, some of the artsy film perspectives do make a difference; there are perspective shots that might look great in 3D. 


Some of the nightmare scenes would be cool in 3D too, --especially when he's having sex with the nurse with the giant wolf head... ewww. Other great scenes would be the transformation, of course, but also the brutal attack in the beginning too. Personally though, I think both Grindhouse films, Planet Terror and Death Proof should have been in 3D, --that would have been a lot of fun. Some day... I really hope they master the art of making TVs 3D, --and yes, they have them now but they're not the same. They suck. What werewolf movie would you watch in 3D? Besides Ginger Snaps?
