The Werewolf of Washington

★½☆☆ – (1973) – A presidential aide who’s bitten by a werewolf becomes one and terrorizes Washington D.C. Despite some minor brushes with the titular villain attacking random people, this moves at a crawl from start to finish. Free of blood, working humor, and an overall purpose.

Late Phases

★½☆☆ – (2014) – A blind vet moves into a rest home that’s attacked by a werewolf, then spends a month awaiting the next assault. Perhaps intended to become the Bubba Ho-Tep of werewolf films, but stumbles out of the gate thanks largely to unlikable characters and bad creature design. A joyless drag.

Ski Wolf

★☆☆☆ – (2008) – Rival skiers compete for the domination of a hill while one of them becomes a wolf. A spoof of an already lame movie that does little but exploit ’80s sport cliches. A Chris Sever letdown as too many lines are repeated from other entries and too many once-humorous mannerisms now amount to nothing.

Underworld: Blood Wars

★½☆☆ – (2016) – A vampire in a shiny leather coat aims to stop her kind from fighting werewolves in shiny leather coats. Yet another preposterous, pompous, and pretentious entry in a never-ending series that continues to take itself too seriously despite a severe lack of originality. Bloated CGI mumbo jumbo for an audience that couldn’t possible be asking for more entries.

Children of the Full Moon

Children of the Full Moon

★½☆☆ – (1980) – A married couple having car trouble happen upon a manor that contains werewolf children. A dull slog that shows characters constantly talking, but not nearly enough of the horror they speak of. Ends on a predictable note that’s just as tiresome and the preceding moments.
