Double Dose Of Lycanthropy With HOWL And BAD MOON!

Awe yeah. I’ve been on a bit of a werewolf kick as of late, and decided that I wanted to cater this week’s edition of “Double Take” to this particular horror sub-genre. So I got together with my buddy Josh Miller (of Friday Night Frights fame for all you fellow Los Angeles movie enthusiasts) and […]

6 MORE Of Horror’s Coolest Looking Werewolves!

Last week, I took aim at one of my favorite sub-genres in horror and counted down the top 10 coolest looking cinematic werewolves. I was pleasantly surprised by the over-enthusiastic response via social media and the fact that so many people hold the lycanthrope so near and dear to their hearts as well! It’s funny […]

Let’s Howl At The 10 Coolest Looking Cinematic Werewolves!

I love monster movies. I mean, we all do, right? But if I had to narrow it down to one particular monster? The werewolf. I’ve always been a huge fan of werewolf horror, mainly the stories that tackle the duality between 2 personalities, constantly fighting for dominance and then losing all control and succumbing to their […]

Remember When Captain America Turned Into A Werewolf? Here’s The Full Story of CAPWOLF!

When you have a character being published in multiple monthly comics for upwards of fifty years, you tend to play out some very kooky ideas. Flash, for example, had an entire storyline about his imaginary friend from childhood who was actually a real alien. It was written by Grant Morrison, so the story is better […]

The Decline of the Werewolf Sub-genre and 5 Lesser Known Werewolf Movies

Hollywood has been at a loss for good werewolf movies as of late. While the 80s and 90s were brimming with lycanthropic activity, the past decade has seen very few wolves journeying across our screens. With the exception of the well-done LATE PHASES from 2014, it feels like forever since we’ve had a stellar werewolf […]

CHARACTER SHOWDOWN – Who’s Your Favorite Wolfman?

The initial concept behind this “Character Showdown” column was to pit different actors that have portrayed the same character against each other and really analyze what we, as fans, loved about each interpretation. And then vote on our personal favorite. But as the weeks have progressed since our launch, I like to mix things up. […]

DOUBLE TAKE – THE WOLF MAN (1941) / THE WOLFMAN (2010)

To me, the key to a truly great “remake” of a pre-existing horror film is simple. Would the new update make a good double feature with the original movie? When it comes to programming a double bill, the goal is to find two movies with a similar theme that would complement each other. And there’s […]
