Movie Info

As the first film ever about gay werewolves, "The Wolves of Kromer" becomes both a satirical fairy tale and a moving love story.

Audience Reviews for The Wolves of Kromer


A baroque tale touching on interesting themes. Amusing at times and innovative but poorly executed with sub-par acting, terrible lighting, bad sound editing and in need of a script rewrite.
