Product Description

Werewolf: The Beast Among Us takes Universal Studios’ historic monster legacy to an all-new level of chilling action and terrifying suspense. When a mysterious creature terrorizes a village by moonlight, a local young man, Daniel, convinces a team of skilled werewolf hunters to let him join their quest to hunt it down. But as the villagers are attacked one by one and turned into vicious beasts, Daniel begins to fear that his ruthless foe is someone closer than anyone thinks. Starring Stephen Rea, Ed Quinn, Steven Bauer and Nia Peeples.

Universal Studios has always been a happy home for monster movies. As honored in the deluxe-package release of Universal classics Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy, The Invisible Man, The Bride of Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, Phantom of the Opera, and Creature from the Black Lagoon, the studio's franchise legacy remains one of American cinema's historic achievements. The direct-to-home-video feature Werewolf: The Beast Among Us is a direct descendent that is as proud of its B movie values as it is of the gruesomely explicit tale of a mythic monster and the formulaic way it binds character and story into salable entertainment. The eastern European village of some indeterminate 19th-century setting has been terrorized for years by wolf creatures that savagely tear apart or devour their prey under the daylight glow of the full moon. A brief prologue introduces us to a little boy who survives an attack that leaves him an orphan and the bearer of his father's wolf-hunter amulet. Thirty years later we again meet the hardhearted Charles (Ed Quinn), leader of a marauding band of werewolf bounty hunters who trek the countryside ridding small towns of the evil man-beast creatures. The archetypal device of a virus that turns survivors of a werewolf attack into werewolves themselves remains at the heart of the story, and the disease is in full bloom across Transylvania. That address becomes significant in the grand finale as kin to another of Universal's famous creatures reveals itself. It also lends much needed authenticity to the production, which was shot on location and makes excellent use of gothic town squares, especially when they are strewn with mutilated corpses after a night of full-moon terror. The motley assortment of hunters makes a colorful cast, who each have their own specialties in the ways of killing werewolves. An eye-patched Steven Bauer is representative of the rollicking posse of characters, doing as much scenery chewing as the part-CGI, part-furry costumed beast. The other name actor in Werewolf is Stephen Rea as a grizzled doctor whose lifelong study of the creature is bent on finding a cure, if not a means of controlling the ghastly disease. But his motives may not be as altruistic as they seem, especially to his young protégé Daniel (Guy Wilson), who comes to understand his own destiny and his mentor's underlying motives a little too late. There's lots of swashbuckling action, bawdy subterfuge (Nia Peeples, who plays Daniel's mother, runs the local bordello), and pleasantly groan-inducing humor along the way. But mostly it's the graphic carnage of this orgy of severed body parts, rivers of blood, and headless bodies that will charm its horror film-buff audience. As indicated, this is strictly B movie material with a by-the-numbers script, unremarkable direction, and a giddy over-the-topness that works within its limitations by assuming an appropriate sense of irony. There are a handful of interesting extras that cover the production from several angles, including its effectively seat-of-the-pants special effects and Werewolf's provenance as an heir to the Universal horror legacy. --Ted Fry

    Classic Universal Horror films are being honored this October. What better way to do that than to add a new movie to the franchise? "Werewolf: The Beast Among Us" is Universal's newest attempt at giving the tragic hairy monster another chance to shine after the disappointing reaction to "The Wolfman." Don't let the direct-to-DVD tag fool you. This is an entertaining and intriguing addition to the genre of werewolf movies.

    I still don't know what there was to be disappointed in with "The Wolfman." It was the perfect blend of two of my favorite horror brands: the gory gothic world of Hammer and the classic Universal look of the monster made famous by Jack Pierce in the 1940s. I am one of the few people who actually loved the film and felt it was a great homage to the classic monster movies of the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s.

    "Werewolf: The Beast Among Us" tells the story of a young man (Guy Wilson) in the 19th century named Daniel. His village is being attacked by a wolf-like creature. Daniel assists the town doctor (Stephen Rea) in caring for the victims and making sure no one is infected by the bite of the beast. He decides to help a band of hunters track down the monster after they're hired to rid the town of the werewolf menace.

    I know it sounds like a typical monster movie cut from the cloth of every other werewolf flick put out over the years. Thankfully, it's got some fun twists and turns that are meant to keep viewers wondering who the creature is and why it's attacking seemingly targeted individuals. It's just as much a "who-done-it" type movie as it is a classic horror vehicle.

    Just like "The Wolfman," "Werewolf: The Beast Among Us" reminds me more of a Hammer Horror movie than a Universal Monster Classic.

    I decided to blindly stream this on Netflix (available as of 10/13/12) and enjoyed it a bit. A young doctor decides to join a group of hunters to stop a menacing creature that has been terrorizing his village. It has some decent moments, including scares and thrills, but doesn't live up to it's potential.

    The story is fairly simple, as I previously summarized. So, it's easy to follow which can be seen as a plus. But, the characters were very generic and have been seen a dozen times in other films; the mysterious yet cool hunter, the smooth yet annoying hunter, the strong yet attractive female hunter, etc. The dialogue is also littered with one liners, I did laugh at the story of the horse with wheels for legs, though. Also, I heard several different English accents, which didn't really make sense to me. The gore and action effects were actually really good. But, the werewolves felt out of place and the transformations were a little lackluster and disappointing. Also, it's not the scariest movie, but it does pack some decent jump-out scares and some thrilling action sequences (not enough of them, though.) The werewolf's identity was predictable, but a certain part of the ending was not; regardless, it is also a bit boring and typical.

    Overall, the story and characters are generic/often boring and the effects for the most significant part of the film (the werewolves) were bad. It has been done before and better. If you're a fan of werewolves or monster flicks, you may enjoy this film the most.

    Werewolf: The Beast Among Us has strong violence and gore. No sex or nudity.

    A group of werewolf bounty hunters, led by a man whose parents were killed by a werewolf in the first scene, come to the aid of an Eastern European town plagued by a super werewolf. In the village lives young Daniel (Guy Wilson) a doctor's apprentice who has studied the werewolf. He joins up with the team of experts to hunt the werewolf.

    People who are bit by a werewolf and survive are called "wurdaleks," a zombie looking creature. To make the story interesting Nia Peeples is one of the hunters and Daniel has a love interest in Eva (Rachel DiPillo). Like all good werewolf movies, it has a gypsy.

    The special effects are not the greatest, but get a passing grade. The smart storyline is the biggest attraction. The characters could have been better developed with better lines to make the film more interesting. Considering what has come out as late in the horror genre, this one is above the pack.

    Parental guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. I watched the unrated version, which apparently has more gore.

    I'm giving four stars to "Werewolf: The Beast Among Us". I'll give you some semi-spoilers that shouldn't ruin your viewing of it.
    The basic plot is that a nameless 19th-century Eastern European village is besieged by a werewolf that A) has the power to kill on any given night, regardless of how full the moon might be and B) seems to be growing stronger. A band of mercenary werewolf hunters arrives to track the monster down, and they are aided by a handsome local doctor's assistant who is in love with a beautiful local rich girl. Actually, there are enough plots in here for 3 movies, but it's not too distracting, and keeps you guessing where it might go.
    There is a twist with multiple villains. While it was a nice twist, I think losing the focus may have hurt the movie in the end. The movie gave us one suspect early on, though he turned out to have epilepsy (which caused seizures that other people, including viewers, mistake for werewolf activity). The real werewolf isn't hard to figure out, and you'll have it figured before the movie hands it to you.
    If there's a disappointment, it's that in the last 10 minutes of the movie, the werewolf goes from being "the awful murderous monster that we must kill!" to the good guy, the hero. That makes no sense, unless you are willing to write off all the victims as simple peasants that aren't worth worrying about.
    Still, overall, it was very good, and it makes more sense than most werewolf movies. The werewolf hunters are equipped with a flamethrower, which is a nice touch, and one of the hunters uses some very cool throwing knives. The cast is solid, lead by very recognizable actors including Stephen Rea, Ed Quinn, Nia Peeples, and Steven Bauer.
