WolfCop

WolfCop

★★☆☆ – (2014) – An alcoholic officer of the law is also a violent shape-shifter. Has some truly maniacal and gruesome moments, and a decent amount of humor, but by the end becomes too wrapped up in a substandard plot. Moves faster than necessary, but does have fun moments.

Wilderness (1996)

Wilderness (1996)

★★☆☆ – (1996) – A young woman believes she can become a wolf, but most people around her are skeptical. Moves slow and steady with character plights worth following. Grows tedious by the end, which is surprising since this is the condensed version of a mini-series.

Taintlight

Taintlight

★½☆☆ – (2009) – A brooding girl falls for a goofy vampire who has issues with flamboyant werewolves. Spoofs Twilight in too-obvious fashion, and never exploits the true weakness of those films: languid self-importance. Has a moment or two worth chuckling over, but is never entirely fun.

Jack & Diane

Jack & Diane

★☆☆☆ – (2012) – Teenage girls fall for one another while one has visions of a wolf. Attempts a minor horror angle through dreams, but is nothing more than a cheap indie where lesbians constantly whisper to one another. A dramatic void.

Strippers vs. Werewolves

Strippers vs. Werewolves

★½☆☆ – (2012) – Exotic dancers find themselves pitted against a gang of lycans. Attempts character arcs among the okay actors, but none of their progressions are remotely humorous or original. The horror runs out of gas by the end of the first scene, while the werewolves haven’t looked this stupid since Howling III.
