Did You Know?

Goofs

In order to get the wolf to snarl and gnash it's teeth for the camera, a clearly visible rubber band was placed around it's upper jaw and snout. It is most easily seen in the footage running behind the opening credits. See more »

I strikes a nerve with me.
17 February 2002 | by (Bristol, VA USA) – See all my reviews

For strange personal reasons, but that's okay, since I have a hard time defining it myself. CRY OF THE WEREWOLF is full of that . . . jeeze, how to describe it? . . . "life - is - shitty - Why - was - I - born? - Why - do - I - have - to - do - awful - things - to - other - people - just - to - pass

  • my - time - on - the - road - to - a - predestined - inevitable -


eternal
  • damnation - that - nobody - else - has - to - endure?" kind of


overwhelming fatalistic cosmic horror that pushes all the right buttons with me. Which, as I said earlier, is strange because my personality is the polar opposite of that kind of cursed nihilism (I never even think about that kind of thing unless a film like that hits me in the face with it). And maybe because that kind of thing is so diametrically opposed to my nature is the reason I find so much horror in the theme, no matter the other deficiencies a film like that may have.

Remember, I'm the guy who thinks FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE WOLF MAN is the second-best of the series, for much, if not all, of the same reasons. Nobody else seems to pick up on that, or if they do, it doesn't resonate with them like it does with me. And that's all right, too . . . some people are afraid of heights, some of wide-open spaces, some of crowds, and so on. I suppose the possibility that inexplicable misery inflicted by basically-good human beings on others is not an act of "personal responsibility" but, in effect, is the result of intentional programming done "somewhere else" must be my own personal bete noir . . . and nobody else can have it!

Besides, it has Nina Foch in a perfectly-cast-and-executed role, arguably the best supporting cast ever assembled for a Columbia thriller, the gypsy thing, New Orleans (my favorite city in the United States). Sure, it's not for everybody, but the whole thing pushes a hell of a lot of my own personal buttons.
