As soon as I heard about this movie I leapt online to find the trailer. I was hooked on the name alone, but if you really need to know the a bit more about the movie here is the low down. It is the brainchild of Bernie Hernando, Lowell Dean, and Hugh Patterson and this is the film they now have the money to make.
[quote] It’s not unusual for alcoholic cop Lou Garou to black out and wake up in unfamiliar surroundings, but lately things have taken a strange turn. Crime scenes seem oddly familiar. Lou’s senses are heightened, and when the full moon is out, he’s a rage-fuelled werewolf. WOLFCOP is one cop’s quest to become a better man…
One transformation at a time. [/quote]
So not only is he a werewolf cop, he is also a drunken one! Who knows what this film has in store for us?
Cinecoup is funding the movie after it beat out four other movies in their Film Accelerator scheme, meaning if nothing else this film will get a release in Canada. As long as it gets released then I am happy because this short trailer was a barrel of laughs from start to finish. Hopefully we will learn more about the mysterious witches/Satan worshipers who turned Lou into a werewolf. The comedy was great in this with the wink to the barmaid leading into the wolf sticking his head out the window getting a round of applause from this reviewer. Some nice gore too, and for a low budget affair the makeup effects are great fun, reminding me of the old Lon Chaney Universal werewolf only with a gun!
If you want to support the movie and find out up to date news on it then this is the official web site link for the film. To finish off here are some of the great posters used in the promotion of the movie. As soon as we hear more about this original flick we will let you know.
