Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez opened the proverbial Pandora’s Box when they exposed the world to their dueling piano concert of cinematic insanity known as Grindhouse. Without their efforts, movies about things like killer tires, Moon Nazis, and even armed intergalactic raccoons would not be concepts that are as possible or as popular as they are now. A lot of projects people wouldn’t have been receptive towards a decade ago are now finding their way into the hearts and minds of the movie watching public, and this is causing an arms race of sorts between indie studios and Indiegogo campaigns all over the world. Clearly, the world is ready and waiting for the next step in that evolutionary chain, and today we’re pleased to announce we’ve found it. Behold, WolfCop in all of its not safe for work glory!
The film’s trailer, as well as the official synopsis, can be found on the film’s official website. If you thought the trailer was interesting, wait until you read the blurb describing the film.
"It's not unusual for alcoholic cop Lou Garou to black out and wake up in unfamiliar surroundings, but lately things have taken a strange turn. Crime scenes seem oddly familiar. Lou's senses are heightened, and when the full moon is out, he's a rage-fueled werewolf. WOLFCOP is one cop's quest to become a better man... one transformation at a time."
WolfCop looks like one of those movies that must have been a lot of fun to work on. Not only is the film promising werewolf goodness, but it also looks like it’s going to attempt to tell a story of a man’s inner transformation as well. At least, it’ll try to do as much as any killer werewolf movie can do with that sort of story. It looks like director Lowell Dean has a love of the retro 70’s vibe, a healthy sense of humor and an appreciation for genre eye candy that directors like Edgar Wright and Eli Roth before him have shown in their work. If there’s any sort of doubt that the filmmakers don’t know full well what they’re giving the viewing public, then the film’s official poster will serve as evidence to the contrary.
If this isn’t a movie destined to show up in your next grindhouse marathon, then maybe you need to go up and watch the trailer again. Drunken werewolves are this year’s armed hobos! WolfCop will be released in its native Canada through a limited theatrical release platform on June 6th of this year. The rest of the world will have to wait until September to see it, but this is the sort of film that has "Demand It" written all over it, so stay tuned for further details.
