The blurb says “It’s not unusual for alcoholic cop Lou to black out and wake up in unfamiliar surroundings, but lately things have taken a turn for the strange…and hairy. WolfCop is the story of one cop’s quest to become a better man. One transformation at a time.”
The verdict: Wolfcop is the ultimate Friday night cult horror to compliment your popcorn and beer. Daft, fun, and with enough cinematic savvy to make it watchable, it will keep you giggling and even give you a few gross-out moments too. Summoning the spirit of the 80’s, with some great practical special effects, WolfCop won’t be winning any awards for originality, (or for much else) but it will put a smile on your face with it’s lupine puns and unashamed stupidity. Let’s face it, if you go in to a film called ‘WolfCop’ with expectations of nuanced characterisation and insightful commentary on the human condition, you are going to leave disappointed.
The soundtrack is also pretty brilliant.
It’s not big, it’s not clever, but goddamn it’s fun.
