The Spanish countryside has a hairy secret..., 6 August 2013
Author: Paul Magne Haakonsen from Denmark

Alright, well Spanish director Juan Martínez Moreno comes out of nowhere with this movie and totally breathes life into an otherwise stale werewolf genre.

Don't let the fact that "Lobos de Arga" is a Spanish werewolf movie throw you off, because this movie is awesome. Just as what "Shaun of the Dead" was to the zombie genre and "Lesbian Vampire Killers" was to the vampire genre, then "Lobos de Arga" steps up and puts a much needed comedy twist to the genre.

"Lobos de Arga" is the story about Tomás Mariño (played by Gorka Otxoa) who travels to his old childhood village, thinking he is about to be celebrated for his slight fame as an author. Little does he know that the village is plagued by a hundred year old curse where a werewolf is rampart, and that his bloodline is needed to end the curse.

The story was actually good and managed to incorporate enough comedy without it turning into a laugh-fest. And the amount of comedy that was here was used at all the right places, with funny comments, funny events and effects.

As for the people hired for the various roles, then I will say that people did surprisingly good jobs with their given roles and characters. And there was a lot of cool and interesting details to the characters and much witty banter in the dialogue.

The effects in the movie were really great as well, and the werewolves looked really cool. Even the transformation scenes were great, despite being a bit 'simplistic' by today's possibilities of CGI effects. But it worked out well, because it had that late 1980's werewolf transformation feel to it. And it was just right on the money.

Being a Spanish movie, of course the dialogue is in Spanish, but it shouldn't be a thing to scare away the audience, because they will lack out on a great movie.

"Lobos de Arga" is a great movie that you owe to yourself to watch, especially if you enjoy werewolf movies, and/or enjoyed "Shaun of the Dead" or "Lesbian Vampire Killers".

This movie gets a 7 out of 10 rating from me. You shouldn't be missing out on this particular Spanish gem.
