Without too much of an indication, we cut 30 year later to Berlin, where television actress Ariane (Maren Eggert) and her anthropologist husband
I, like many horror fans, know that the werewolf movie is the hardest of all the horror sub-genres to get right. For every American Werewolf in London, there’s an American Werewolf in Paris… But once in a while a movie comes along that successfully captures what makes the genre great. Wolves is one such movie.
Written and directed by David Hayter, who has penned such blockbuster films as X-Men and its sequel; and the film adaptation of Watchmen, Wolves tells the story of Cayden Richards.

Of the three, Spacey's character is by far the most realistic; you do get bosses with real psychopathic tendencies. According to Robert Hare's "psychopathy checklist", about 1% of the population are psychopaths. A good number of those seem to have made their way into management.
These are people who see their employees as victims, prey to their desires. Spacey's character, for instance, makes his employee work hideously hard for a promotion he then awards himself. I once had a boss like that: he would play power games,
