Night Of The Wolf: Late Phases
Release Date: OUT NOW!
2014 | 18 | DVD
with werewolves is that they traditionally only come out once a month; there’s a lot of downtime between one full moon and the next. While most werewolf movies just hit fast- forward, Night Of The Wolf uses every long moment to develop its main character.
When a mysterious creature kills his neighbour, blind Vietnam veteran Ambrose McKinley ( Nick Damici) tools up. But the real fight isn’t with the wolf; it’s with his own demons, making this more of a meditation on death and sacrifice than a monster movie.
Thanks to too many loose ends and an unearned emotional sting, it doesn’t quite work – but the ’ 80s- style werewolf effects are fun.
