Dire Wolf explores the wild side in all of us.

Dire Wolf is a genuine thinkpiece exploring the animalistic nature of humanity at its core, as evidenced with the Warden's line "you must have nine lives, Amber". Perhaps the dire wolf in the movie is what lies at the center of all of us?

Though the film had a small budget, Fred Olen Ray truly makes the best of it in Dire Wolf. Though some may see Olen Ray's patented eye-level- throughout-the-whole-movie camera technique as laziness and lacking any creative camera use, the beauty of the movie lies in the simplistic camera angles to establish a constant familiarity throughout the film. This avant garde approach to filmography is nothing short of great artistic expression on Olen Ray's behalf.

Another controversial, yet triumphant, move in the film is the unveiling of the wolf in the first ten minutes. With bold candor, the filmmakers sought to cast aside the conventions of suspense and action greats such as Predator, Tremors, and Signs. Who wants to wait for the creature-of- the-feature to be revealed in a suspenseful matter when you can see it clearly in broad daylight as soon as you can sit down?

A must see movie- I would recommend this to anyone. If this movie does not catapult the careers of its actor, there is no justice in Hollywood. Fred Olen Ray's magnum opus should not go unnoticed.
