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. Your typical all-American jock, Cayden goes on the run following a vicious football incident and the murder of his parents – possibly at Cayden’s hands. You see Cayden is changing and not in your typical high-school teenager way. »

I always have a golden strand of optimism to grasp on to. When it comes to werewolf films, I’ve found myself becoming a little pessimistic. The last film that really nailed it was “Dog Soldiers »

The Nurse may be in 3D, but that’s not how it was viewed – because if it doesn’t have piranhas, Judge Dredd or murderous miners in it, its really not worth the hassle. In Nurse – which is a much-anticipated thing people wanted to see – a murderous nurse spends her evenings offing adulterous bastard men, like some sort of kinky anti-cheating Punisher. Things get complicated when she befriends newbie colleague Danni (Katrina Bowden), who doesn’t look so kindly upon her man-murdering ways. Melodrama ensues… in 3D!
Part stylish thriller, part steamy European slasher film and all Lionsgate, Nurse takes a strong female cast, promising concept, excellent visuals and frequently clever writing and »
