Cursedis a movie that I’ve never seen before now. It came out during the wretched era/glory days (depending on how you look at it) of teen horror movies in the early 2000s. It’s got a relatively young cast and fits the mold of most Wes Craven movies. Teenage friends, outcast, etc. It’s the Scooby-Doo gang make up. Anyway, this movie is about werewolves and it has Christina Ricci in it. Based on that last sentence, I have absolutely no idea why I haven’t seen it before. Especially since it’s on Netflix.
It’s probably mostly terrible, but it does have a lot of actors/actresses that I like in it, and again, it’s Christina Ricci + werewolves. How bad could it possibly be? (more…)
I’ve kind of been obsessing over werewolves over the past however long, but quite honestly, I’ve never paid much attention to werewolf stories on film. What’s really tickled my fancy have been stories from folklore from the likes of Native Americans, Norse mythology, etc. The stories rooted in truth are what really get me to start thinking.
But the other day, I was browsing Netflix, and I just got the hair to check out what movies they have on werewolves. So, I decided to throw a little list together in honor of the impending All Hallow’s Eve, as well as just to make a reference point for the wolf movies I want to watch in the coming weeks. (Note: I haven’t watched but a couple of episodes of the Netflix original series Hemlock Grove, but it appears to be wolf-centric as well.) So, join me in the Wolf Den, and let’s see what there is to see!
