Top 50 Best Werewolf Movies Of All Time

DivyaDivya-Updated Aug 7, 2021


Werewolf Movies

 

Horror is that genre you can keep experimenting with strange characters and still be sure that someone somewhere will definitely get bemused and might come back for more.

 

And that acceptance has since been keeping its wide popularity afloat. Werewolves are so underrated.

 

There isn’t a better category to showcase the heights of human imagination. And to note about the much-favored Vampires, their existence is mostly dependent on this arch-nemesis.

 

While the Twilight series gave a romantic, humane side to werewolves, the gothic creature that draws a fine line between being man and animal also has some real fascination with bloody fights and deaths.

 

However, film enthusiasts have forever loved werewolf movies, good looks or not, the blood and gore is definitely another vibe that you sometimes really fall for.

 

The mystic creature has been in movies for so long and has been surprisingly an amusement to people who are not even fans of the genre.

 

The Lycanthrope obsession brought into cinematic history some of the finest works of graphics, music, and cinematography that have set standards for horror fantasy to date.

 

While sources date the earliest mention of the category as The Werewolf from 1913 which is believed to be lost in the racks of time.

 

It is visible that werewolves from then have never totally taken the backseat as here and now new ones pop up.

 

Sometimes living up to and also sometimes miserably failing our expectations. Here is the list of  ENTOIN’s Top 50 werewolf movies.

 

 

50. Howling 2: Stirba - Werewolf Bitch

 

Howling 2: Stirba - Werewolf Bitch

Directed By Philippe Mora
Written By Robert Sarno, Gary Brandner
Music By Stephen W. Parsons
Cinematography By Geoffrey Stephenson
Year 1986
Runtime 87 min
Starring Christopher Lee, Annie McEnroe, Reb Brown, Marsha Hunt
IMDb Rating 3.7/10
Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score 14%
Global Box Office N.A.

 

Combining two of the most powerful elements of fantasy, we have witchcraft and werewolves in this movie.

 

After Howling, this movie begins by showing the funeral of the journalist Karen White, the heroine of the previous movie.

 

Ben White, attending his sister's funeral meets some people who convince him of his sister being a werewolf.

 

As they set out to Transylvania to find Stirba, an immortal werewolf queen. A fight between the most unusual of the fantasy world follows.

 

Christopher Lee himself has often described HOWLING II as his own "personal embarrassment!". It is not a bad movie, for a light mood it has enough fun and sometimes that is all you need.

 

 

49. Wolfcop

An alcoholic cop in a small community is sent out to investigate something. As part of some preconceived plans, it is later revealed that Lou Garou is now a werewolf.

 

With heightened senses, Garou’s transformation sends a new sense of acceptance throughout the department. Garou and his partner are investigating local murders in a bar while Garou is also coping up with being a werewolf.

 

Dean tries his best in mixing up comedy and horror which actually worked in lots of places.

 

We needed more of the wolf cop in action though." Lou, you're a wolf!" (growls) "Cop!"

 

A Canadian masterpiece that is fun and easy going and is definitely worth a watch.

As wild as the title sounds this is a wild story that you might end up liking.

 

When a group of friends is out on a hiking trip they find an abandoned baby in an old castle.

 

As they move further they realize a werewolf following them. For the strangest reason that the beast is following them, it is up to these teenagers to save themselves and the baby from the nasty beast.

 

As the plot goes round in circles there are times you would find yourself awed at what is really happening.

 

With some really good dialogues, great acting and an ending you would never anticipate this movie deserve a seat on your list of watchable ones from the genre.

This is a total one-of-a-kind, sleek, serious, and scary movie. Now, who would actually imagine socially responsible werewolves?

 

Los Angeles Police Department has a special squad who are really good at what they do.

 

The pack as they are called run by Bruce Payne is the squad that rules the city.

 

When the good cop Max Dire is in between a family crisis, he consults detective Adam Garou (Bruce Payne).

 

A therapy session actually is an invitation to join the pack. A fight for the same women ends up in a disastrous duel as well.

 

While not intending to give out any interesting details, the ending is worth waiting for.

An age-old argument between two packs of werewolves the good and the bad side. Timothy is about to turn thirteen, though raised by the good wolves he is considered a danger by the other side.

 

As Timothy "For some, I am salvation, for the others their destruction". Nothing really in connection to any of the previous stories heard, this thirteen-year-old boy is meant to make a lot of changes in the lives of the werewolves.

 

The bad wolves don’t want that to happen, the very reason is revealed at the end.

 

An average addition to the genre, it can be entertaining to some crowds.

 

 

45. The Beast of Bray Road

Cinematography By Steven Parker
Year 2005
Runtime 80min
Starring Jeff Denton, Thomas Downey, Sarah Lieving
IMDb Rating 4.2/10
Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score 27%
Global Box Office N.A.

 

The movie is somewhat based on local Wisconsin lore. Leigh Scott did try to bring a difference to the usual kind of werewolf story.

 

And he did deliver a smooth-flowing film. There is a new Sheriff in town who is not very familiar with the local woods.

 

Here we also have a wild savage werewolf that tears apart people once it gets hold of them.

 

A cryptozoologist arrives to investigate. As they all team up to fight the beast, victims still appear in different parts of the area.

 

With no CGI effects, the movie turned out pretty good. For people into the category, you should definitely try this.

 

 

44. Werewolves on Wheels

Bikers, Satanists, and werewolves. Now that’s a combo no one really asked for but some will actually enjoy the experience.

 

The Devils Advocates, a biker gang is driving desert roads and gets a little lost.

 

As they decide to camp out near an old church some monks serve them bread and wine and they pass out.

 

The monks are actually part of a satanic cult and perform some ritual on the gang leader's girlfriend.

 

Tension arises within the crowd as they move on from the place as murders start happening.

 

Strange deaths, werewolves, and an unexpected climax. Not delving into too many details as of now.

 

Since you are going through our list, you are interested and hence this movie will interest you for sure.

 

 

43. Cursed

Fortune tellers are sometimes right people! Or so does happen in this movie. Friends Jenny Tate and Becky Morton get their fortune told by Zela that they will endure a tragic fate.

 

The same night siblings Jimmy and Ellie are part of an accident that altogether changes the fate of themselves as well as of the people around them.

 

As they collide with another car the siblings are slashed by an unknown creature and the fortune-teller's readings also start happening as Becky dies.

 

The siblings realize their senses heightening and their power starts increasing so does the danger they inflict.

 

The only way to cure this infection is to find the real beast. Occasional suspense and good performances stand out in the depiction of the movie.

 

And a majority also voiced the disregard for the subplots that didn’t really work with the theme.

 

Overall it is an average experience with its own kind of flaws.

 

 

42. Howl

Trains are really good in movies, and in horror movies just 'perfect'. This movie has done really good in building up that claustrophobic element which played really well.

 

A train is stopped in the middle of nowhere as it nearly derails after hitting a deer.

 

Ambushed at midnight with nothing for help this little group is in for an adventure with things that can get as supernatural as it comes.

 

A very well-working storyline that can keep you engrossed, entertained and also makes sure you leave the lights on at night.

 

Because it can be scary as it has some decent, good with their claws and teeth werewolves acting.

 

 

41. The Werewolf Versus the Vampire Woman

So what does really happen when the silver bullets are removed from a dead wolfman.

 

As scary and confusing as it sounds, they come back alive. After what happens in the fury of the wolfman Waldemar Daninsky comes alive when the silver bullets are removed during autopsy.

 

When two girls go in search of the tomb of the possible vampiress Countess Wandessa de Nadasdy one of them accidentally bleeds into the corpse and she comes alive as well.

 

Like all the other movies in the genre work, the vampire woman and wolfman will fight till their ends.

 

Despite its low budget, this Spanish movie showed a really good gothic and horror atmosphere as one good movie.

 

 

40. Werewolf Woman

Music By Coriolano Gori
Cinematography By Mario Capriotti

While not really a werewolf movie this is actually a psychologically disturbing horror movie. Daniella Nesri is raped as a child, which breaks her.

 

As she is sent to the family's country home to recover from the trauma, she gets fixated on one of their ancestors who was alleged to be a werewolf.

 

Daniella finds herself closely resembling the ancestor and from there, her trauma takes a different stand.

 

This dark, depressing, horror movie also shows the other not much-favored side of humanity. While left confused whether it is her psychological imbalance or a real werewolf spirit, the graphics will haunt you.

 

Sometimes bad things never stop happening I presume.

 

 

39. Red Riding Hood

 

Red Riding Hood

 

Entity Detail
Directed By Catherine Hardwicke
Written By David Leslie Johnson
Music By Brian Reitzell, Alex Heffes
Cinematography By Mandy Walker
Year 2011
Runtime 100min
Starring Amanda Seyfried, Gary Oldman, Billy Burke, Shiloh Fernandez
IMDb Rating 5.5/10
Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score 39%
Global Box Office $90,260,376

 

Lightly related to the original Little Red Riding Hood, the movie talks about a small village with a neighboring werewolf pledged not to harm the Village.

 

And then somehow mysterious deaths start happening, the wolf has started killing. When a wolf hunting priest arrives in the town, he says that one of them is actually the wolf which scares the villagers.

 

As the villagers search for the beast, many unfortunate secrets are revealed for a family in town.

 

The blood moon week creates havoc that will change the life of some within themselves.

 

This little red makes decisions that no brittle heart could do. Not spilling many details, it is a good movie with some unexpected twists that are worth a watch.

 

 

38. The Twilight Saga

 

The Twilight Saga

 

  • Based on: Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer
  • Starring: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Ashley Greene

 

This is a list in a list of a set of movies that lightly introduced vampire, werewolf obsession to the teenagers in the 2000s.

 

Stephanie Meyer became an instant superstar with this series. While still, some would be wondering who that is.

 

Well, she wrote the books. The Cullen’s and Isabella Swan or more popularly Bella brought forth standards to teenage romance that never really got old.

 

Bella, her vampire friend Edward and Jake, the werewolf give perspectives of three different worlds and one good old romance and the aftermath which extends to all five movies in the series.

 

While I don’t intend on getting into the details. There is some pretty good vampire, werewolf fight scenes and not so cringy story that you could watch.

 

If you’re into romance, vampires, werewolves and also see how technology developed through these years you should try watching them.

 

The movies in order are:

 

  • Twilight (2008)
  • The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009)
  • The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010)
  • The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (2011)
  • The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 (2012)

 

 

37. Werewolves Within

 

Werewolves Within

 

Entity Detail
Directed By Josh Ruben
Written By Mishna Wolff
Music By Anna Drubich
Cinematography By Matthew Wise
Year 2021
Runtime 97min
Starring Sam Richardson, Milana Vayntrub, George Basil, Sarah Burns
IMDb Rating 6.0/10 
Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score 81%
Global Box Office $927,992

 

Dragging the plot long definitely did bad for this movie and where is the werewolf in the werewolf movie.

 

Residents of Beaverfield are divided over a new pipeline project. When a massive power outage results in all of them staying at the same lodge the town realizes its new threat, a werewolf in disguise.

 

The story is all over the place and what could’ve been a really good movie ended up being all about a massive chaotic confusion with the werewolf playing a guest role (you don’t get enough to really see it).

 

Maybe the werewolf was just a tactic for you to watch the whole movie. It is watchable though, just missed the presence of the werewolf.

 

 

36. The Beast Must Die

 

The Beast Must Die

 

Entity Detail
Directed By Paul Annett
Written By Michael Winder
Music By Douglas Gamley
Cinematography By Jack Hildyard
Year 1974
Runtime 93min
Starring Calvin Lockhart, Peter Cushing, Marlene Clark, Charles Gray, Anton Diffring
IMDb Rating 5.7/10
Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score 37%
Global Box Office N.A.

 

What happens when a friendly gathering turns into a mad werewolf hunt and to make things more interesting you are one of the suspects.

 

As spooky as this sounds. When a wealthy hunter, gathers a group of people and informs them that one of them is a werewolf, the sherlock in everyone is ready for the puzzle.

 

A suspenseful horror thriller that does not center around the werewolf but definitely has an interesting werewolf has enough to keep you engaged.

 

A tale in search of finding a blood trail and ending it. And Peter Cushing has so much to say about werewolves that you end up being very knowledgeable about the subject.

 

This is definitely a good thing, maybe you could use it for analyzing the rest of the list.

 

Totally unrelated but for the potter heads out there see if you can find someone familiar here.

 

A professor maybe.

 

 

35. Wolfen

 

Wolfen

 

Entity Detail

IMDb Rating 6.3/10
Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score 46% 
Global Box Office $10,626,725

 

An engaging adventure that builds up tension as it goes on, the Wolfen spirit lingers enough to make you shiver.

 

When business magnate Christopher Van der Veer, his wife, and bodyguard are brutally murdered in Battery Park.

 

Suspicions arise on the unusual clues left behind by the killer. Detective Dewey Wilson is given the task to investigate the murder, with the help of forensics they discover non-human evidence on the murder site.

 

As more murders follow, the people who try to help Dewey are also ambushed. What does this wolf-like creature want?

 

And what are they trying to protect?. Many questions left being unanswered. A fine cinematographic experience and a gem from 1980 that you should watch.

 

 

34. The Wolfman

 

The Wolfman

There is nothing really familiar to us as one of the gothic literary classics comes to life.

 

Ben Talbot is attacked by a wolf-like creature and dies. His brother Lawrence Talbot who is considered mentally unstable is out to search for answers among gypsies whom the townspeople believe are responsible for Bens' death.

 

But Lawrence is attacked by a werewolf and realizes the answer to his quest as well as answers to the traumas he endured all his life.

 

Our protagonist already had fate write his pathway and that is evident as we move through the story as things become clearer.

 

There is not one specific place to begin about the spectacular job that has gone behind this creation.

 

From direction to casting, music (Danny Elfman was reinstated and that really shows) everything contributed to making this a worthwhile, live creation

 

 

33. Werewolf of London

The first werewolf movie from Universal did catch a certain amount of attention but reached its full-fledged glory only at later stages.

 

When middle-aged Wilfred Glendon goes to Tibet in search of the rare plant, he is attacked by a mysterious creature.

 

On returning from the trip, the botanist dedicates all of his time to understand this plant.

 

But only to his dismay, he realizes that he not only brought back a plant but it is also a temporary cure to a long-lasting illness that he has contracted from his trip. "The werewolf is neither man nor wolf, but a Satanic creature with the worst qualities of both." The statement itself speaks in volume what is to be expected from the movie, and it does not disappoint.

 

A special mention to the makeup crew for the transformation scene showed finesse in technique which is highly commendable for the time.

 

 

32. Wer

The Porter family is brutally murdered and only the wife is left behind. While she claims that a strong man killed her husband and son.

 

Something very strange is discovered in further investigation. The eremite Talan Gwynek, the accused is suffering from a rare condition that is passed on through generations.

 

To survive from a conspiracy, to save what he has while having a condition that cannot be controlled.

 

Brutal, scary, and chilling. This is one of the most underrated movies of the werewolf genre.

 

Back on track with the werewolf legacy, rather than the sculpted version that hides among humans this werewolf definitely sets new heights of expectation from the genre.

 

 

31. Waxwork

 

Waxwork

Sic college students Mark, China, Gemma, Sarah, James, Tony decide to visit a mysterious wax museum since a gentleman who claims to own the exhibit invites them over.

 

As the students wander into two different dimensions on display beyond the barrier rope things get ugly for them as they get trapped in a reality with the most dangerous and scary mythical illusions.

 

As six souls are needed for evil to swallow up the world. The children fall into a trap that even relates to some of their past as well.

 

David Warner does a splendid job as the owner of the museum. Roger Bellon's musical score complements the aesthetics beautifully as well.

 

A serious horror flick, good acting, a clever plot, likable characters are worth a watch for pure entertainment.

As he moves near to his sister's house we have Thor, to the rescue. His sister's family dog, thor is suspicious of foul play which ends up being the right intuition.

 

While a man’s mind is trying hard to keep sanity, there are things a werewolf can't control.

 

The family German shepherd against a werewolf. A fine creation of the time that you should watch.

Sometimes some movies surprise us by having heroes with the least kind of traits we expect.

 

Ambrose McKinley, a fiercely independent veteran who is also blind is forcefully moved into retirement community dues to his son's pressure.

 

When Ambrose’s neighbor is attacked by a vicious creature and his dog mortally wounded it is now up to him to find the source of the chaos in this little town.

 

Ambrose is pissed at his dog's death and is going to find an answer to these disturbing ordeals.

 

While Ambrose did a spectacular job there were some shortcomings regarding the other aspects of the movie.

 

An engaging adventure that has its flaws but we’ll be happy to give a special recommendation to the dog.

 

 

28. The Brothers Grimm

 

The Brothers Grimm

 

Entity Detail
Directed By Terry Gilliam

IMDb Rating 5.9/10 
Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score 39%
Global Box Office $105,316,267

 

Unlike the real Grimm stories, this might not be the fantasy you are looking for.

 

Set in the real-time of 1700 in Germany is a fantasy thriller to haunt you.

 

Reality deals so well with the fantasy elements in the movie which was a totally wow element for us.

 

Nothing really big but innovative ideas should definitely be accepted. When the famed monster hunters Wilhelm (Will) and Jakob (Jake) Grimm are revealed to be con artists and are caught to pay for their deeds.

 

They are given the task to solve the disappearance of several girls in Marbaden, believing charlatans like them are responsible for it.

 

This journey changes their perspectives of things until then. The myths and stories they only heard about looked real now as they get closer to the truth.

 

Fighting werewolf huntsman, black magic, and an evil queen who wants to regain her youth by sacrificing the young girls, nothing they were prepared for.

 

For a moviegoer in search of something light and engaging to watch this would be enough to keep you going.

This is a package with an additional surprise packet. Unlike the usual werewolf combination of the wolves and vampires here you also get the Frankenstein monster.

 

What a treat.! Van Helsing is out on a mission: to destroy Dracula and to save the two last surviving members of a Romanian family.

 

With no memories to connect to his past, Van Helsing with the help of Anna fights off werewolves, the aftermath of Frankenstein’s experiments, a curse, and a past that could change the future.

 

Genuinely stunning CGI and background works clubbed with a fun story are worth a watch for sure.

IMDb Rating 5.8/10
Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score 44%
Global Box Office $111,952

 

Instead of so much blood and gore generally attributed to the genre this movie talks about a girl fighting a hereditary cursed gene.

 

Teenager Marie lives in a remote fishing village in Denmark with her father and mother who is confined to a wheelchair.

 

When Marie develops a strange scar on her chest, the movie delves more into the situation about her mother and her strange disease.

 

A shy teenager who becomes part of a much wider universe than she really imagined.

 

This werewolf story was widely analyzed on exploring human perceptions and convictions. A good movie as most of it goes.

 

It goes in the watchable category.

 

 

25. The Wolf of Snow Hollow

Runtime 83min
Starring Jim Cummings, Riki Lindhome, Chloe East, Jimmy Tatro
IMDb Rating 6.2/10 
Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score 66%
Global Box Office $266,963

 

A horror, thriller, fantasy movie that ended up receiving so many mixed reviews. Jim Cummings is the police officer in therapy assigned to investigate a gruesome murder, something very different from what they have seen all those years.

 

As the news spreads about a possible wolfman, Snow Hollow is shaken. There is John’s almost broken family, his anger issues, and many stories running in parallel.

 

Set in a perfect atmosphere which could’ve been done better is the only thing which we could actually say.

 

Robert Forster is to be remembered as this is his last movie. It is a dark comedy that did not end up being really bad.

 

 

24. Silver Bullet

 

Silver Bullet

 

Entity Detail
Directed By Dan Attias

Runtime 95min 
Starring Corey Haim, Gary Busey, Everett McGill
IMDb Rating 6.4/10
Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score 56%
Global Box Office $12,361,866

 

It’s a Stephen King story and just like that the standard has been set. This is that kind of movie that builds upon the atmosphere, slowly grows on you and although there isn’t so much real to it, haunts you.

 

Said from a child's perspective, it talks about a brother-sister relationship quite nicely. Marty is paraplegic but is thoroughly mischievous and lives with his sister Jane.

 

As murders start happening around the town Marty's personal life also starts getting affected. As he witnesses the strange killer, no one believes the child's werewolf story.

 

With the right touch of comedy, very good investigative instincts, and blood and gore handled rather delicately the creators definitely took enough consideration into making the intricacies woven into this fine creation come out beautifully.

Karen White, a Los Angeles tv news reporter is traumatized after being attacked inside a porn theatre.

 

Her psychiatrist suggests a private retreat to take her mind off things. The ‘colony’ is a strange place where strange things are happening since her arrival.

 

Karen notices as things go wrong but finds it difficult to point out what is actually wrong.

 

It is creepy and entertaining with bits of comedy to keep you engaged. Although Howling might look like another typical werewolf movie.

 

It is not. Once you get into this spooky little ‘colony’ you can only end it with a bang.

 

Tension builds up throughout the movie as we go into it and never disappoints which is appreciated as well.

Out of the hundreds of Hollywood’s ‘B’ movies, this small mystery-horror movie is not very disappointing.

 

The Hammond family is cursed or so is what is believed of them by the townsfolk.

 

When two members of the family including Oliver Hammond are by some strange creature Scotland Yard scientist Robert Curtis and his sidekick Christy are sent to investigate.

 

While many try to hide the real truth, the monster cannot be hidden forever. The movie builds horror and suspense as it goes.

 

Not really bad for the kind and is worth a watch.

When two robbers break into the Talbot family crypt on a full moon night, Larry Talbot, the werewolf comes alive.

 

On a quest to find inner peace, Larry Talbot is in search of death. He reaches the Frankenstein manor in search of the doctor who can drain the force of life from him.

 

There is no doctor but only his monster. In a desperate journey for eternal peace, Larry tries really hard to control his inner demon.

 

In between a suspicious village scared of the return of the monster and his desire to find death with the help of Dr.Manning.

 

Will Larry succeed in his quest? A question worth watching the movie for. A very distinctive approach to the usual plots this movie flows with the tide despite its flaws.

 

While not a great follower of the Frankenstein series, the movie did justice to the wolfman story.

If you are into mockumentaries, vampires, werewolves, and dark comedies you have just hit jackpot.

 

Comedy horror is not an easy thing to execute but this movie just has it right.

 

Taika Waititi and Jermaine Clement marched in with a perfect blend of the finest actors and you can't get enough as it ends.

 

A group of vampires living in an apartment is followed by a documentary team. Viago, Vladislav, Deacon, and Petyr all possess supernatural powers and are a really friendly bunch of vampires.

 

As they let more people into the group their past and present get intertwined and unfortunate events start happening.

 

When circumstances lead them into a group of werewolves, they can continue being rivals or change for their own good.

 

As we grow old things are set in our own ways and are not really easy to find new ways and let us say vampires also think the same.

 

This fresh and original dark comedy is highly recommended for anyone looking to find a different approach in the genre.

A werewolf movie that took into consideration that it was high time for a business world- werewolf combination.

 

Will Randall the editor-in-chief of a publishing house is accidentally bitten by a werewolf. When business politics wrecks his personal life as well, Will needs help to retain composure.

 

As he takes back to hold on to things that matter. The dangers of being a werewolf are something he should learn to keep up with.

 

Class and style matter even in horror settings and there isn’t a better movie to show that.

 

There is the newfound confidence and assurance that takes the wolf transformation to better standards.

 

The cinematography is also beautifully done.

It is Halloween and there isn’t a better tradition that is part of world histories like trick or treating.

 

In the fictional town of Warren Valley, Ohio our characters walk through each other’s stories.

 

What makes this story different is Sam, a peculiar trick or treater who enforces the rules of Halloween and around whom the story revolves.

 

A mysterious murder, a school bus massacre, a surprise party, and then there is Sam.

 

While all stories have really scary things to tell. There is one that particularly stands out.

 

How about going on a date and then you end up being dinner. Confused much??

 

You should maybe try watching this Halloween treat with high expectations because this one is actually good.

 

And yes, no mention of the werewolf, only because it's better kept a secret before watching.

Both the government and the public are now aware of the existence of Vampires and Lycans.

 

A program to study them ends in a disaster and the annihilation of the non-humans becomes a priority.

 

As Selene and Michael are captured things take more dangerous turns for the clan. Not the best in the franchise, this movie takes a different turn from the previous ones as it is no longer entirely devoted to vengeance.

 

There are some thrilling actions and events, overall, this is a slightly above-average not bad movie.

The third movie from the underworld series stands on par with its predecessors which very rarely happens.

 

Michael Sheen and Bill Nighy are back and we couldn’t be happier. Back to the aristocratic dilemma where werewolves/ Lycans were slaves to the vampire clan.

 

When two from these categories fall in love, the slaves and rulers have a battle they never anticipated to happen.

 

CGI, visual effects, music, makeup have all contributed immensely to this perfect execution. The gut and gore at times are more than enough to throw you off your chair.

 

Highly recommended to the ones in love with the genre and also to the ones who are planning to fall in love with it.

Yoshiaki Kawajiri's Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust is so intricately woven that every bit of the animation shows style and perfection.

 

It is a serious, emotional, and at times humorous creation. In the middle of the night, a young woman is abducted by a vampire nobleman.

 

D, a dhampir is hired by the woman's father to find her dead or alive.

 

Later they suspect that the woman went with Meier on her own terms. Another group called the Markus brothers are also on the same trail.

 

And now it’s also about who gets the girl first. D Meier hires the mutant Barbarois to guard him; consisting of the shapeshifter Caroline, the shadow manipulator Benge, and the werewolf Machira.

 

There is that dark, grimy, apocalyptic feel that grabs you and sends chills down your spine throughout the movie.

 

Rather than perceptions, this story tells us to look inside to really understand a person. One of the finest animation adult movies for adults that you shouldn’t miss out on.

 

Highly recommended.

The rest of the movie deals with the ups and downs of their relationships and how the family as a whole faces them together.

 

As Hana moves them to the countryside for the safety of the children, a new life beckons.

 

Things change, places change and there is so much fantasy to the making but there is also that one common struggle faced by mothers all over the world that unites this film to reality.

 

Although it is a fantasy movie, to a high extend it is almost about things that we see every day, things we can easily relate to.

 

Director Mamoru Hosoda has again made something that touches the core of humanity with some perfectly touched animation.

Underworld is no conventional movie. It has a lot of villains who you end hating really well until you are slapped right on the face with the real motives.

 

An age-old war between the Lycans and the vampires finally results in the vampires having an upper hand.

 

An heir to the legendary "Corvinus" bloodline, carries a unique genetic strain that could allow him to become a vampire-werewolf hybrid.

 

This is the center of the plotline. Of love, revenge, family, and relationships this movie is definitely a must-watch.

 

And on a special note, the prospect of hibernating Vampire elders who take turns on the ruling is really cool.

Ginger snapped Right! A perfect blend of the horror that you would really want. This movie is totally unpredictable and versatile for very versatile reasons.

 

The coming-of-age dilemma drastically falls into misery that breaks Ginger and her family. Brigitte and Ginger Fitzgerald are sisters bound by their wishes.

 

While on their way to kidnap the school bully's dog, Ginger gets her first period and is attacked by a strange creature that is causing so much distress in their little town.

 

As things start getting out of control for Ginger, Brigitte is on a search to bring her sister and the town back to normalcy.

 

Kris Lemche's role as Sam, the loyal friend from school who helps the sisters is to be specifically noted as it is one of the most significant roles that completes the movie.

 

Not a typical werewolf story but this Canadian horror flick I assure will get better as you go through it.

The movie is based on a bestselling Estonian novel "Rehepapp ehk November". And to adopt such a well-received book into an even better version, the director has done a really good job.

 

A very strangely original movie it might be almost difficult sometimes to keep up with the story.

 

A mythical village inhabited by Black Death, spirits, werewolves, and the devil and what happens there is the premise of the movie.

 

While we could spill out details, it is not really easy seeing this is one very difficult plot to really speak out about.

 

If you are looking for something real, scary and a different experience this is your cup of tea.

John Landis's horror comedy film packed with entertainment landed several fans to the genre for the technique it smoothly showcased.

 

Horror, suspense, humor, and romance voices a strong note in this movie. When two American boys David and Jack are out to hike on the English lands, no one bothers to warn them about a danger they might be walking into.

 

While one of them turns into a werewolf the other is a victim of the curse.

 

As all werewolves are cursed too, death is inevitable. As David realizes what he is putting everyone around him in, it is even harder for him to decide on his fate.

 

This is one of the finest classics of the genre for reference. The horror comes so fast at you that it even takes time to actually realize what hit you.

 

Rick Bakes's special effects are outstanding. And the werewolf transformation is one of the finest in cinematic history.

 

The film is one of that kind that shows it doesn’t take very complex plots or ideas sometimes to make the best kind of creations.

For the die heart fans of animation out there, this is a gem of a creation.

 

It’s a fantastic 2D world and the brilliant craftsmen behind this should be specifically mentioned for retaining the quality and its style.

 

Bruno Coulais and Kíla's original music score makes you wander off in the right direction.

 

For a year that we didn’t have so much to look for, Wolfwalkers is undoubtedly one of 2020’s best creations.
