It’s been a dog’s age (Pun unintended) since I’ve seen this flick and I forgot how great it is. The plot tells the story … Continue reading

Wolfen-1981-movie-1

SYNOPSIS: A New York cop investigates a series of brutal deaths that resemble animal attacks.

Film Review: Wolf (1994)

wolf-movie-1994-jack-nicholson-2

SYNOPSIS: Publisher Will Randall becomes a werewolf and has to fight to keep his job. REVIEW: There is sometimes a weird relationship that comes from horror themed films that feature A-list actors. It’s that same notion that we got when we heard that Tom Cruise would star in “Interview with a Vampire”. I think as horror fans, there is this rebel psyche in us that wants to dismiss before accept. “Wolf”, I’ve always felt is … Continue reading
