Given how this movie begins, we're led to believe that Professor of Anthropology Harry Beckmeyer somehow stumbled across some 80-year old footage of Australian aborigines killing some man-wolf hybrid thing. Considering this to be concrete evidence of the existence of werewolves, Harry travels to Australia so that he can prove the existence of werewolves to the scientific community.
Meanwhile Australian native Jerboa (Imogen Annesley) is recruited by a young filmmaker (Donny) to act in a werewolf movie called "Shape Shifters." They become intimate and Donny learns a bit more than he expected about werewolves--including that, evidently, they have kangaroo pouches just above their hoo-has.
The first half of the movie follows these three characters in an over-the-top marathon of fun horror-spoofed nonsense. The second half feels like a really weird family movie complete with a healthy relationships between Jerboa and Donny, Harry settling down with a balerina werewolf, and they all have fast-growing werechildren. Meanwhile, the Australian military has become hell-bent on capturing, studying and maybe eradicating the recently discovered werewolves. It's like The Little Marsupial Werewolf House on the Prairie with some pesky military occupants.
The cheesy transformation scenes are comically littered with rubber prosthetics, bubbling skin and retractable claws. There's a laughably gross monster birth scene dream sequence. Oh, and there are werewolf nuns and a werewolf ballerina with poor transformation timing! Of course, the actual action is infrequent and awful, but I don't mind at all.
Fun, weird, light-hearted and spoofy.Read more ›
