3.0 out of 5 stars "Rear Window" meets "Fright Night" January 14, 2009
Format:DVD
Imagine "Rear Window" and "Fright Night" rolled into one movie and you've got a pretty good idea of what "Never Cry Werewolf" is about. Teenaged Loren (Nina Dobrev) thinks there's something odd about her new neighbour, Jared (Peter Stebbings), so starts spying on him from her bedroom window using her brother's telescope. It turns out that Jared is a werewolf and a serial killer, although the police won't believe Loren when she tries to tell them. This leaves Loren to deal with Jared herself, which she does with the assistance of Redd Tucker (Kevin Sorbo), a washed-up television hunter.

"Never Cry Werewolf" is an entertaining film and for a made-for-TV movie, it is above average in quality. However, there is something about this film that just didn't sit right in my mind. Although all of the scenes appear in a logical sequence and form a coherent story, there is something disjoint about them, to the point of being almost episodic, and the director never seems to quite make up his mind as to whether this is a horror-comedy or a straight horror film. Add to that the fact that Kevin Sorbo doesn't appear until halfway through the film and the fact that the idea of Stebbings (who has some pretty obvious wrinkles) being romantically interested in a high school girl is kind of creepy, and you've got a pretty flawed movie.

Given that it was made-for-TV and on an obviously low-moderate budget (the werewolf looks like a stuffed grizzly bear), there is a surprisingly large amount of blood and gore. Less than you would find in a cinema-release horror movie, but more than in most telemovies. This might put off some viewers, especially those used to Sorbo's other telemovies (such as "Avenging Angel") which are extremely family friendly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sorbo plays a great reluctant hero! September 16, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When I first heard about this movie,I wasn't sure I would like it since I've never been one for werewolf movies. I wasn't disappointed! Kevin Sorbo does a great job of playing a guy,down on his luck,who gets a chance to do something to change his life,but yet is reluctant to do so. Yet he takes the challenge to prove to himself what kind of man he really is. As for the young girl,she was good. Kudos to the special effects people for a dynamite job on the werewolf head-it was down right scary! I recommend this to any Sorbo fan and to anyone who likes werewolf films in general.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the Best Werewolf Movie Ever But... June 17, 2008
Format:DVD
I will admit that the main reason I watched this movie is to see Peter Stebbings. That said, it's not the best werewolf movie I've ever seen but it's cool. It's more geared towards teens and it's solution is too simple for my taste. But, since it is a teen movie and there isn't a lot of time spent on the back story of the mysterious neighbor, I suppose I should be happy with what we got.

Seeing Kevin Sorbo is a reluctant hero role was nice for a change too. I thoroughly enjoyed Peter Stebbings performance but I don't think the lead female (Nina Dobrev) was written as well as she could've been.

A lot of people are calling it a "rip-off" of Fright Night. Whatever. I liked it and so I recommend seeing it, especially if you are a Stebbings or Sorbo fan, it's worth the watch.

3.0 out of 5 stars Tongue firmly in snout October 17, 2010
Format:DVD
Have you ever had the feeling that the guy who moved into the house where the registered sex offender was murdered was a werewolf? Then you might want to see this movie. If instead you suspect he's a vampire, then see Fright Night. If he's just your run-of-the-mill psychopath then Disturbia might be a better suggestion.

You see, all of these movies are about a protagonist confined to their home with a really creepy neighbor. Said neighbor has a dark secret, but only our house-bound hero knows the truth. The fun part is that he does everything a logical person would do: scream, tell his friends, and call the police. Due to disadvantages ranging from physical disability to social status, nobody believes him. And so it's up to our hero and perhaps a few unwitting fools to battle the monster in his lair.

Never Cry Werewolf has a few differences, but they're skin deep. The werewolf (Peter Stebbings as Jared Martin) has a creepy allure worthy of a vampire; seems 16-year-old Loren Hansett (Nina Dobrev) reminds him of his long lost love. He also has an ill-tempered dog and a motorcycle, which makes him something of a celebrity in the small town. When prostitutes begin disappearing, Loren becomes increasingly desperate, culminating in a visit to Stebbings' house. Which is exactly what he wanted all along...

Never Cry Werewolf gets several things right. The werewolf myth is accurate; medieval scholars believed one could become a werewolf by wearing a strip of flesh from an evil man, which is precisely how Stebbings' power works (and why he murdered the sex offender).

3.0 out of 5 stars "Biting off more they can chew?" Definitely not! October 21, 2008
Format:DVD
Well... I don't know about anyone else, but I LIKED IT!

I mean, yeah, in some ways, it's campy -- but, that's what makes it work!

Personally, I have nothing against the actor, Peter Stebbings, who played the "Werewolf-Next-Door"! But, if I were the casting director, he would'nt have been my choice!

As for Kevin Sorbo, playing a "washed-up" actor, trying to reclaim his "15 minutes of fame", I thought it was brilliant! (The last time I saw him was in "Gene Roddenberry's ANDROMEDA"!)

As for the ingénue, Nina Dobrev, I could definitely see her follow in the path of Natalie Portman... or, perhaps, even Kirsten Dunst! (I see ALOT of "untapped potential" in her... and she's just getting started...!)
