Even a man who is pure in heart and says his prayers by night, may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms and the autumn moon is bright.
Finally saw the latest Wolfman movie. I know it was a disaster in the box office and critics generally disliked it, but I found it to be an enjoyable romp in the werewolf legends.
While it was different than the 1941 original, the writers gave us a good story. Some tension, some mystery and excellent performances from all the lead actors. I enjoyed the film craft of the movie as it harkened back to that 1941 original.
I would recommend this movie to any fans of the horror movies of the 30’s and 40’s. A wonderful way to spend an evening with someone.

Dunno about horror movies from the 30s and 40s, but I like modern horror movies… wonder if I’d like this one? I remember when it came out – I will usually try most movies and this one looked intriguing, but the terrible reviews and it not being my usual genre kept me from making time for it.
Horror movies of the 30s and 40s…. OOOHHHHHHH! I haven’t had the pleasure of catching the Wolf Man update, either. Harkens back to my younger days when I would sneak out of bed to watch Nightmare Theatre on Friday nights.
I also enjoyed this movie. Like wise as a small child I would sneak out of bed to watch not only nightmare theatre, but also Alfred Hitchcock.
