The ingredients for Something with Bite.
15 February 2009 | by Darkphoenix1988See all my reviews

I liked this one. Not loved, but liked, much more than the 1998 attempt at werewolf-comedy, an American werewolf in Paris. Here we have an African-American couch potato slash veterinarian who is doing night shift, when suddenly, they bring in a large animal. "My! What big eyes/ears/teeth you have!" The poor thing has been run over, and in its last moment, it takes a snapper at Wilbur, our vet. This sets into motion a sometimes funny set of events that leads up to a rather sad, but in a way, disturbing climax. The acting is reminiscent of other films like Vampire in Brooklyn, and the casting is quite perfect. It has its downsides here and there, but overall it's worth the watch.The best thing about this one, is that it keeps its Fear Itself Trademark UNhappy ending, but in such a way that it actually is happy after all. Compared to other episodes of Fear Itself, this one should not be viewed with great expectations of scares and suspense, but it delivers in other ways. Add a bag of playfulness, a dash of strange and a pinch of serious, and you have SOMETHING WITH BITE.
