The plot of
WolfCop is exactly what you think: it’s about a cop who gets turned into a werewolf. Silly, yes, but it’s not stupid. The werewolf lore underpinning the doughnut-munching shenanigans is surprisingly complex, and it’s clear that a lot of care has been lavished on every aspect of the production. The one- liners might be daft (“Who are you?” “The fuzz”) but the filmmakers clearly aren’t.
The real selling point, though, is the gore. The camera never flinches from a skewered eyeball or an exposed bone and the prosthetics look brilliantly gooey. And if the werewolf transformation isn’t quite up to Rick Baker’s standards, well, at least it looks like it really hurts.
A behind- the- scenes featurette ( 44 minutes), bloopers, a music video and other bits and bobs. Sarah Dobbs
