"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.Read more ›
So, why two stars? Well, for one - Kevin Sorbo. He plays a great 'reluctant hero' type, and provides the much needed humor this film is lacking. He is the 'Peter Vincent' of this film, and was well chosen. I just wonder how drunk he had to get to agree to this project. Star number two - Nina Dobrev - while not quite up to the acting talent of Sorbo, she does make the rest of the cast look amateurish, and she is extremely soft on the eyes.
I usually can watch a film several times over - even if it isn't 'the best' of films, I can find a redeeming quality or two that makes it if not re-watchable, then something I can put on as background noise. Not so with this one. Rent it if you must, watch it when it comes on cable, but Never Cry 'Click to Buy'.
Wow, this was a FUN movie! Everything a B movie should be - campy, scary, dorky, & just plain fun! Did I mention I have a soft spot for werewolf movies?
Plot is basically a rip off of the Fright Night movie from the 80s. A new neighbor moves in next door & something is off. The 16 year old girl proceeds to spy on him with her brother's telescope. (Of course, no thought about how illegal this is.) She then breaks into his house. (Again, isn't this illegal?) She decides her neighbor is a werewolf but nobody believes her. Surprise! Also, the werewolf decides she is his next great love interest/mate. (More creep as he in his 30s & no thought on how illegal this is.) As you can see, this is definitely a straight-to-DVD movie with no studio editing for acceptability.
But it's FUN! The girl seeks help from a famous t.v. hunter (who is Kevin Sorbo from the Hercules t.v. show). Of course, the hunter is an actor & knows nothing about hunting. A blast from the past giving a nice role to an actor who is no longer in the spotlight.
There are little homages to other movies such as Aliens & so on. And the whole movie feels like they blended about 30 types of horror movies together & got this stew.
Over the top scenes: (1) demon familiar of the werewolf ends up in a gun store & begins to rampage. Of course, everyone grabs a gun & starts firing at it. (It's a hunting store!); (2) final showdown in the werewolf's house/lair includes the girl, her brother, her love interest who is 1/2 werewolf at the time, the t.v. hunter, and... the werewolf.
This movie was totally crazy & totally fun except for a brief scene with the girl & the werewolf. Leave your brain at the door & ride the roller coaster.
You'll love the scene of the werewolf eating some homemade soup. Gross...
