Sheepskin (2013/Unearthed Films DVD)

Picture: B- Sound: B Extras: C+ Film: C

Unearthed Films presents Sheepskin - a unique spin on the werewolf genre from first time Writer/Director Kurtis M. Spieler. Though shot on a low budget, the film feels pretty cinematic and has some devious looking special effects. Taking place primarily in the location of a dark warehouse, the film mixes torture violence and the supernatural with interesting performances from newcomers Michael Schantz, Laurence Mullaney, and Ria Burns-Wilder.

The story revolves around a group of Punk Rockers who are out to avenge the death of one of their sisters by kidnapping a snotty businessman who they suspect to be a werewolf that killed her. The film has its obvious influences from Punk DIY films, The Howling, and Reservoir Dogs, but ultimately feels like a fresh taste. My biggest complaint is the look of the werewolf itself, while shot mostly in shadows, doesn't look very real when it comes out into the light.

Presented in standard definition with an anamorphic widescreen aspect ratio of 2.35:1 and a lossy Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo track that isn't terrible, but not as strong as a 5.1 mix. The menus aren't too impressive but the disc is easy to navigate. A high definition release would help enrich the transfer and audio mix for sure.

Extras include...

If you're looking for a gory tale and want some new werewolf action, give Sheep Skin a spin.
