Full Moon Features: Blood Freak (1972)

Since the full moon falls on Thanksgiving this year, I figured I'd highlight a slightly different kind of movie in this month's column. While there's no such thing as a movie about a wereturkey, there is 1972's Blook Freak, which TCM's Robert Osborne once sheepishly described as being about "a motorcycle enthusiast who's turned into a blood-crazed turkey man."...

Indie slasher film "Bonehill Road" is out

When I posted about crowdsourced werewolf movie Bonehill Road last year, I had the usual mix of high hopes and low expectations. Now it's out, and according to Rotten Tomatoes and IMDB reviews it's... actually pretty good!

To be fair, most of the positive reviews are from people who were hoping for low-budget indie schlock featuring lots of gore and a...

Be kind to the new girl – an untitled werewolf comic

This comic by Alex and Sidney is making its way around Tumblr. I absolutely love the gentle artwork and the unapologetic use of red. It has no title, but I would like to suggest "New Girl", after the Long Winters song of the same title (and, given the impressionistic lyrics, a similar theme)....

SciShow's "Werewolf Myths" video doesn't disappoint

YouTube channel SciShow recently published a short video on the origin of werewolf myths. A number of people sent me the link – thank you! – and I only just had a chance to watch it.

Full Moon Features: Carnivore: Werewolf of London (2017)

Typically, when the director of a low-budget werewolf film is presented with a naff-looking monster suit, they compensate by keeping it in the shadows and showing it as little as possible. This, however, was not the tack taken by Simon West, the writer, producer, director, and editor of 2017's Carnivore: Werewolf of London, in...
