Didn't really have time to post anything tonight, but after coming home from seeing The Wolfman I thought I would look on here to see what others think and to my surprise only Horror Movie A Day had anything to say so far on the movie.
Hopefully that means that everyone is busy seeing it right now. I know my theater was a packed house! This was the best werewolf movie I have ever seen. Seriously. Most of the changes that were made from the original make perfect sense and in my opinion are better, especially the time period and location of the film. There is one HUGE element of the movie that was added for this that wasn't really needed but was handled effectively. I won't say anything about it here just now as I don't want to spoil anything for those planning to go see it.
Fantastic production design, well timed jump scares scattered throughout, and rip roaring gore each and everytime the Wolfman is on screen.
And speaking of the gore, both it's level of violence and also Rick Baker's makeup design totally had me thinking that the spirit of Paul Naschy is alive and well. He would have loved this.
Please go see this and take someone you love with you for a Valentine's night out.
