This week's Halloween theme from Wandering Through the Shelves is movies about Werewolves. I have to admit, werewolves are not my favorite supernatural beings in films, but that doesn't mean there isn't some great films out there involving them. So I'll give you one I love, one I didn't expect to like, and one that was a good part in a bad film.
1) Trick R Treat
First, the one I love: This film has a lot of great things going for it and the werewolf subplot leads to one of the most memorable shots in the entire film for me.
This franchise sort of went to shit, but when the original Underworld came out I really liked it. I wasn't expecting to enjoy it at all, but I liked how it was this supernatural take on a forbidden romance. At the time, it was a nice change.
3) Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
I'm a massive Harry Potter fan, but Prisoner of Azkaban is probably my least favorite movie. I know everyone has an Alfonso Cuaron boner, but he completely fucked this film, let's be real. Lupin, however is a great character who happens to be a werewolf. So he gets to be here. At least Cuaron didn't fuck with Lupin's character like he did Ron's.
