I'm ashamed to say that I had this one laying around forever until I finally gave it a spin for my traditional Halloween viewings, and it was actually a helluva lot of fun. It felt like Gothic horror mixed with equal parts adventure film, and I dug it.
Many said the actual Wolf Man remake was bad (I didn't, in fact, I loved it) but if they ever had the chance to see this, Universal's second attempt to reboot the character, their tune would promptly change. Blatantly ignorant of established mythology (really, werewolf victims become vampires do they?) complete with a shoehorned-in attempt at an Underworld-esque finale. Oh and I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the eastern European accents that only 50% of the town has and the chief werewolf hunter with his inexplicable southern (!?) accent. The CGI is hit and miss (mostly miss) but the practical effects are quite good, I'll give the movie that much.
Better than expected, Werewolf: The Beast Among Us is way better than its cover and title suggests, but it is still a relatively crappy piece of historical, gothic horror that does little to make itself memorable...
