Kweeny Reviews: WOLFCOP



I'm really pleased to see more werewolf horror movies coming out. With movies like Female Werewolf (which I am dying to get a hold of and see) and the movie I am reviewing today WOLFCOP, more of my furry friends are showing audiences that werewolves are just as interesting as any other classic monster. And this one is Canadian made! Home grown werewolf love! *howls*


Wolfcop is pure cheese though. Not that cheese is bad, I love a good silly horror film like the next guy. And Wolfcop doesn't pull punches. The plot is groan worthy, with a deadbeat cop named Lou Garou (Oh no! Is he possibly going to be transformed into a werewolf? I NEVER SAW IT COMING) ...who gets wrapped up in a case of weird dark rituals that turn him into the beast. Then he gets hunted by this cult of shapeshifters, who need his blood to be immortal. With his friend Willie the gun shop owner, and his partner Tina, they hunt down the cult before the can finish what they started.

Yeah, that is pretty much it. But because of how this movie is filmed, how everyone completely hams it up for the camera, and how silly the effects get at times, I had a great time watching it! The movie was self aware about it's shlock, and I don't mind watching a werewolf cop drink beer and shoot up bad guys! They never once shy away from gore or a silly punchline, which really gave this movie a Troma-esk feel. Lloyd Kaufman would be proud!


And I have to say, this movie has one of the greatest crazy sex scenes ever put on screen! Most of the movie has heavy metal or rap music, but one song stood out from all the rest. The werewolf cop makes love to someone to the tune of Moonlight Desires by Gowan! FUCKING GOWAN! You know you are a Canadian who was raised in the 80's when you recognize Gowan songs! I laughed my ass off watching this scene, so honestly, the movie is worth watching for that alone!

Check out this video of Gowan singing Moonlight Desires to get a feel for what I am talking about:


My heart is all a flutter! Just look at that mullet! /sarcasm 

Gowan man...FUCKING GOWAN IN A HORROR FILM! I NEVER THOUGHT I'D SEE THE DAY!

Wolfcop is a fun, silly werewolf film that knows just how far to go with the camp. Which in my opinion, is all the way! Never do a campy horror flick half assed. Full ass it, or don't bother!

*howls*

On Chronic Werewolves, Larping, and Sexy Witches

Well my life has been quite the roller coaster lately readers. Lots of different things have been taking my time away from blogging. I've been working on my health issues lately, and even started a blog where I document some of my thoughts on things. If you are curious about that, you can follow the link to my blog called Diary of a Chronic Werewolf. I talk personally about mental and physical aliments I suffer from. Living a life with chronic afflictions is hard.

Larp has been eating a big chunk of my time too, as I am in like 4 different Larps currently! I think I might need to cut down on all the Larping. I did however just finish an awesome Larp experience last weekend called SPITE. It's a sci-fi Larp that really makes you feel like you are in a warzone fighting aliens. I played an android named Kink. She was as pretty as a doll.


And then finally I have joined forces with a few of my favorite ladies of horror to start a geek podcast called Archivists Bet on Sexy Witches! We just finished a 2 hour long episode on Disney Villains! Listen in if you wanna hear who my favorite Disney Villains are!


I have more plans for posts in the future, and may even get back into Vlogging again. People really seemed to like my "Shit People Say to Women Who Like Horror" video. Plus, I can get out my wolf hat again. I do love wearing my wolf hat.

See you on the flip side Monster Kids.

Edie Ellen Poe, Cute and Macabre Moving Storybook Video Series Pilot Launched!

 I'm in love with this super adorable, quirky project, and I wanna see it take off! Check out the press release below and by all means, visit Edie Ellen Poe on Kickstarter!

Edie Ellen Poe, Cute and Macabre Moving Storybook Video Series Pilot Launched,
Creator Strives to add a Female Voice to Male-dominated Cute and Deadly Horror Humor Genre




Portland, OR; April 6, 2015 – Martha Hull has launched a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to fund the production of Season 1 of Edie Ellen Poe, a black humor moving storybook series about a macabre little girl and her vampire cat, Raven. Hull is excited to add another female voice to the still largely-male dominated world of cute and deadly humor. “The pantheon of cute and funny horror: Charles Addams, Tim Burton, Edward Gorey, Neil Gaiman, Gris Grimly, Rob Reger of Emily the Strange, Roman Dirge of Lenore… the majority of the voices in charming horror humor are men, even when the protagonists are girls. I feel it is important to have more female representation in this genre of stories. Girls love the dark side just as much as boys.”


Hull seeks to fund the first season of Edie Ellen Poe, which is told with an unusual take on video storytelling. Using an approach that is reminiscent of something an extremely talented child might put together, Hull has created the pilot for a series of narrated storybooks, combining elements of hand-rendered illustration, animation, and stick puppetry. Hull has further bucked the trend of modern animation by using hand-painted black and white art, where the artist’s hand is very much visible from frame to frame.


South Park was a big influence for me in giving myself permission to use a more rudimentary style of imagery in video – it’s really about the stories and humor. This is even simpler, but I think it is compelling as I believe that humans of all ages like to have stories read to them,” she said. “I upped the ante from that concept with multiple voices interacting, sound effects, and simple movements.”


The pilot episode of Edie Ellen Poe, "Teddy Bears," features the main character, Edie, her vampire cat, Raven (who speaks with a highly inauthentic Transylvanian accent), and Edie’s conjoined-twins soft doll(s), who perform a “teddy bear” head transplant despite one of the stuffed animals being a rabbit. “There’s no such thing as a Teddy bunny,” the main character Edie pundits, “therefore, they are both bears.”

Hull is trying to raise $27,300 on Kickstarter.com by April 25. Hull successfully completed funding of her first Kickstarter in November 2013, raising $13,822 to publish her second adult picture book, Death’s Daughter and the Basket of Kittens, which she both wrote and illustrated. She has also created and illustrated Untimely Death Alphabet, published in 2011. If the Edie Ellen Poe Kickstarter is successfully funded, the money will go largely towards labor costs, allowing Hull to create to create a first season consisting of six or more episodes largely single-handedly. Additional costs for the project include supplies, fees, and taxes.

Martha Hull, is based in Portland, Oregon, and has been making art professionally since 2002. Through her parent company, Fluffpocalypse, LLC, Hull specializes in cute, funny, and deadly art and stories. Here website is http://www.marthahull.com/
