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. The picturesque English country town of Kromer is filled with hypocritical citizens who feign piety yet are consumed by mean-spirited plotting. They are also heavily prejudiced against the wolves that live in the woods by the edges of the town. These wolves, played by gorgeous young actors, are ostracized for their differences, which mainly consist of physical attraction to each other. Seth is new to the pack, having been thrown out of his house when he "came out" as a wolf. He hooks up with the worldlier Gabriel and it is their relationship which is tested by the pressures of the intolerant world around them as well as their own confusion and commitment issues.

Although there is plenty of outdoor location work, the film feels like the stageplay adaptation that it is. A dramatic satire, there are two plot strands. In one, a pair of elderly ladies plan the murder of another elderly woman they are caring for, just

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. The werewolves ain't the real horror element -- it's the inane dialogue that will send chills up your spine. Despite its many problems, this film has a strange charm if you're in the mood for a strange film.

It wasn't at all what I expected, but it was actually kind of cute. The message was not subtle, but it didn't need to be in a fairy tale.

Soft werewolf film, not horror. More like two guys have werewolf features such as tails and are gay. Can't understand the story or what's going on. No subtitles in english to read. It's french.
