A spoof of 1960's Drive-In flicks, 'I Was a Teenage Werebear' features five rock and roll musical numbers in a mash-up of Roger Corman and John Waters that follows a day in the life of closeted new kid Ricky O'Reilly (played by Sean Paul Lockhart, aka adult film superstar Brent Corrigan) who falls for Malibu High's mysterious bad boy Talon (Anton Troy). When aroused, the two transform into bestial leather daddies, the titular 'werebears'. Written by Anonymous

Alternate Versions

Although this short is featured in the film Chillerama, the stand-alone festival version is longer and ends on a completely different note, with Sean Paul Lockhart performing a gay anthem entitled "Room for All." The song was included in the original Comic-Con screening of 'Chillerama,' but it was decided that the tone of the ending was wrong for the compilation film. Subsequently, writer/director Tim Sullivan began independently selling DVD-Rs of the "Hairy & Uncut Ultimate Edition," which included the longer version of the film, an exclusive 5.1 audio mix and a variety of other extras which were excluded from the "Chillerama" disc.

Any film with songs called "Purge the Urge" and "Love bit me on the Ass" has got to be worth a watch! Sean Paul Lockhart is a cute young man, as yet unsettled with his sexuality, until he falls for the local bad boy "Talon" (Anton Troy - surely a made up name if ever I heard one) who wrestles with him, bites his butt and turns our scantily clad hero into a "werebear". This film is a parody of just about everything from "Grease" (1978) "Rocky Horror" (1975) with bits of Elvis and Roger Corman thrown in too - and this all happens in just half an hour! Lin Shaye has some fun as the mystic "Nurse Maleva" who tries to avert the corruption of SPL - but will she succeed? Who cares, it's dreadful - but he does bear a worrying resemblance to Michael J. Fox at the end and I rather liked it!
