Bubba The Redneck Werewolf (2014/And You Ent./MVD Visual DVD)

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

Bubba the Redneck Werewolf (2014) is the new film by independent filmmaker Brendan Jackson Rogers that is a pretty fun Z grade Werewolf movie, similar in tone to Wolf Cop (reviewed elsewhere on this site). Based on Mitch Hyman's long running comic book series, the film comes from a screenplay by Steve Biro (Unearthed Films) and stars Fred Lass as Bubba - a wisecracking, typical redneck who becomes a werewolf after signing his soul over to the devil, in an attempt to impressive his high school sweetheart, who isn't too into him anymore.

Bubba also stars Malone Thomas, Mitch Hyman, and Chris Stephens.

While the film is pretty fun, its low budget shows through in many instances, namely in some of the digital and special effects (even the makeup on Bubba isn't that impressive), but what saves the movie is its heart and its well developed characters. This isn't a serious werewolf film of course (wait until you hear the name of the county in it) but definitely more of a comedy, so a lot can be forgiven.

Presented in standard definition with an anamorphic widescreen aspect ratio of 1.77:1 and a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 track, the film looks and sounds standard for DVD and is nothing special or awful in terms of presentation. A Blu-ray edition would be a welcome upgrade.

Extras include...

16 minute documentary ''From Page To Screen: The Making of Bubba The Redneck Werewolf''

Blooper Reel

Werewolf and Devil Makeup Process Videos

'The Ballad of Bubba' Behind the Scenes Music Video

Official Trailer

A winner on the film festival circuit, Bubba is mainly for those who like their wolf men a bit on the funny side, but doesn't compare to the style and story of a Wolf Cop.
