Quotes:
The Priest:There are many wolves out there. Secret wolves. And their silence serves only to fuel my act.
Kester:Well, you;re not acting for me. Let them get on with it.
The Priest:Kester, I'm not hearing you.
Kester:Yes, you are father, and you're being really uncool about this. I mean, where in the Bible does it say, Thou shalt not be a wolf?
The Priest:They are sent to us by the Prince of Darkness, Kester.
Kester:Yeah, but...
The Priest:No, Kester! They seek to destroy that union which is sacred to the church - marriage. Marriage is the reflection of our relationship to God, and Satan has sent them to try to undermine that mystical union.
Kester:Look, I'm frozen. I'm going home.
The Priest:Well... well, I'll have to accompany you.
Kester:I'll be fine. I know the way.

Gay werewolves in love!, 19 February 2002
Author: Wayne Malin (wwaayynnee51@hotmail.com) from United States

The movie takes place in a small British town. Seth and Gabriel are gay, in love and are werewolves. Meanwhile the townspeople are out to kill them because they're "different".

In this movie the werewolves are (very obviously) a metaphor for gay men. In fact the two actors are always in human form even when they're wolves (this movie was made on a VERY low budget). They just wear fur, have long claws for fingernails and have tails (a big mistake--they look laughable).

As you can tell, this is one strange movie. It's well done, beautiful color and scenery and a lush music score. Also, some of the jokes are quite funny but there are plenty of groaners too. The message is also very pro-gay. Unfortunately, this movie doesn't always work.

The acting is bad (it's obvious they hired models, not actors) and this is a cute idea but it's stretched out to 70 minutes.

So, it has its moments (especially if you're gay) but doesn't work as a whole. Still, I recommend it. When it does work it's great!
