It's not unusual for alcoholic cop Lou to black out and wake up in unfamiliar surroundings, but lately things have taken a turn for the strange...and hairy. WolfCop is the story of one cop's quest to become a better man. One transformation at a time.Written by
After the credits there is a scene returning to the drunk man, who was mistreating his dog, who is stopped in his tracks by a growling WolfCop, who then looks directly at the camera, before the WolfCop.com URL flashes onto the screen. See more »
Another b-movie! Yet again I found myself watching one of those movies where almost everyone looks aghast, asking themselves: "Why?" And then there's me. 'Cause it's about a cop. That's a wolf. That kills bad guys. Who are shapeshifters. And have a kind of satanic cult. With a soundtrack composed by RidingEasy Records (the heavy psych / fuzz label that signed awesome bands like Black Prism, Salem's Pot, Electric Citizen, Albino Python and The Picturebooks and (re-)released tapes of Saint Vitus, Graveyard, Witchcraft and Orchid). Oh, and it has tons of blood, gore and splatter. And to top it all off, it has an awesome looking werewolf reminiscent of those in Werewolves on Wheels, not that over-stylized Twilight stuff. I can keep on going. The only question to ask yourself is: "Why not?" This is the sort of movie that's the ultimate kind of entertainment for me. Compared to Hollywood this Canadian movie is low budget, but don't be fooled, the total cost still is around 700.000. However, when you see the trailer of that other, insanely stupid looking, Canadian werewolf movie Wolves (which actually will get a theatrical release in Belgium) and know that one cost almost 15 million euro's, one can wonder why WolfCop doesn't suffice. To throw in some other numbers: the Danish werewolf (art)movie When Animals Dream had a budget of around 2.5 million euro's and the latest American blockbuster about werewolves (The Wolfman, 2010) cost 123 million euro's. I only want to point out the ridiculous waste of money when it comes to some movies. If an entertaining movie (WolfCop) costs 700.000 and a more highbrow movie (When Animals Dream) costs 2.5 million, isn't that enough? Why must entertainment be funded by such capital when it can be made with much less? Such capital prevents true creative freedom, 'cause money is restrictive, not liberating. Above all, it's not that this kind of capital is needed for technical progress, 'cause we're not looking at themes like in Avatar, Gravity or Interstellar. This is horror. Pictures like Wolves and The Wolfman are redundant and therefor waste. We need a wolfcop to prevent this crap from happening in the future!
