Animals (Trailer)

After watching Neil Marshall's Doomsday, it got me thinking how awesome Dog Soldiers was. A lot of directors have fucked up werewolf movies, but Dog Soldiers kicked ass.

Now with the flux of lycanthrope movies such as Underworld: Rise of the Lycans and the Wolf Man coming out next year, are the American and world masses ready for a reintroduction to werewolf movies?
Are we going to have a lycan revival?

So as I super highwayed along, I found an interesting new werewolf movie called Animals.

Starring Naveen Andrews (Lost) and Marc Blucas (BtVS), from the trailer its filled with claw crunching gore, hot steamy naked sweaty sex and some jump editing weirdness.

Here be the eh - so - so - eh plot (from IMDB)

Syd Jarrett (Marc Blucas) is an unsuspecting, down-and-out man in a washed-up hick town whose life is turned upside down when the drop-dead gorgeous Nora (Nicki Aycox) walks through the door of the local bar. Jarrett's passion for Nora leads him peripherally into a sub-culture of animals where he encounters Vic (Naveen Andrews), a renegade whose animal instincts are stronger than his human ones. As things begin to get even worse, Jarrett realizes that his best chance for happiness, and survival, lies in his true love for Jane (Eva Amurri).

The movie is based on a novel by John Skipp and Craig Spector who are the inventors of "splatterpunk".

Gore, sex and werewolves.

This gotta be good right?

Check out the trailer below.

  1. I love werewolf films, I believe they don't make enough of them, that pussy vampires get far more exposure than needed. But that film looks terrible. They don't use any dialog in the trailer, it's all quick shots, and it still looks really poorly made. Sadly, I'll probably check it out, just because it's a werewolf film.

    It's been 27 years since American Werewolf in London and The Howling came out, and nothing has come close to being as good as those werewolf films.

  2. I hope the wolf man turns out good. but your right. ever since the howling, no other american werewolf movie compares...though dog soldiers was pretty good.

  3. Yeah, I agree, Dog Soldiers is probably the best werewolf film since those two. Ginger Snaps was also decent. But that's about it, mostly it's a lot of crappy Howling sequels. Hopefully Wolf Man kicks my ass.
