Never Cry Werewolf (2007/Genius DVD)


Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: D     Film: C



Though the cover and text sell Brenton Spencer’s Never Cry Werewolf (2007) as some serious Horror film, it is really a bad comedy with more violence than it would need to show if it had a better script.  The monster is seen too soon and often, comes across more as a machine than supernatural creature and the storyline of the monster/neighbor who knows he is one and is tormenting 16-year old Laura (Nina Dobrev) as well as us with this formula dumbness.  She cries “wolf” too many times and no one believes her, get it?


We didn’t care either.


Kevin Sorbo shows up for no good reason except to mug and get a paycheck, but when you see his name, you know comedy will be somewhere and that is bad news for anything he does that has to do with Horror.  The 90 minutes concludes by admitting that everything is a joke and the makers have zero idea of what to do with the materials or situation. 


The anamorphically enhanced 1.85 X 1 image is nothing special, with slight softness throughout and barely consistent color.  The Dolby Digital 5.1 mix is surprisingly poor in dialogue and soundfield for a Horror film, with the budget limits showing.  Sound effects gimmickry is also unimpressive.  There are no extras.
