Audience Reviews for House of the Wolf Man

I was somewhat excited about this picture. I'm a fan of the Universal Monster movies, and I like a good homage or parody. I was thinking this would be a loving tribute with goodhearted jabs at the genre, style, and particularly the weak monster mash movies like "House of Frankenstein". I was thinking something like Larry Blamire's work. I even thought maybe people were missing the joke when I read reviews about the bad acting...but they are right. In Blamire's work, the acting is intentionally over the top and bad, in the vein of the acting it is parodying. This just has stiff acting, people read the lines like they've never acted before...and not at all in the real style of the Universal movies. They may have a real Chaney in the cast, but he isn't making it feel authentic (he is awful, by the way). The monsters aren't even on the horizon 45 minutes takes too long for them to show up. A real shame, because the idea of making a new "House of" movie in loving tribute/parody of Universal Horror was a good one. Especially since the look, feel, style, and monster make up effects (even if the monsters don't show until the bitter end) are pretty solid. Too bad.

This film was a homage to the old classic horror films that Universal did. I love the idea of it and they set the mood great being in black and white and having the the music playing ,but i think the film could have used a little more experienced actors. Most of the performances with the exception of the monsters were very flat even compared to the old films.One of my beefs with this film is it took so long to get to the meat of this film. I mean there was like maybe 15 minutes of action to it? I will give a lot of credit to the creature designs. They were some of the best interpretations of those classic monsters and still managed to make them feel old school. All in all I enjoyed the film and would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of classic horror ,but was hoping for a little more meat to go along with those potatoes.
