Cool, I love it when people who aren’t filmmakers at all try to make movies. It just warms my heart to know that they wasted all the time and effort and money to birth an hour and a half-long turd like Werewolf: The Devil’s Hound into the world, it really speaks to the never-say-die and never-wonder-if-this-was-a-good-idea spirit of the small business entrepreneur.

A guy who works at a special effects factory gets bitten by a werewolf who looks like a big fluffy yeti and grows sideburns as he tries to eat his co-workers and wife. Luckily, a group of comic relief werewolf hunters were chasing down the original monster and set up an incompetent trap. It fails, everybody gets eaten or ripped apart, then some random characters show up at the last minute, defeat the monster, and leave. Oh, and it ends with a UFO abducting one of the survivors, for no reason.

This movie was clearly made by a small special effects house who just as clearly wrote and directed and played themselves. I say this because some of the special effects were competent (they set off fireworks without obviously burning down the studio in the film) and absolutely nothing else was. Also, they just used their own workspace as the setting for the film. This movie just had laziness written all over it, and it’s awful… but you can tell the people involved are having fun with it. Which is why, and I’ll apparently just say this again and again until the day I die, these movies are fine to make so long as you don’t try to foist them on the great movie-going public. Nobody else wants to see your idiot werewolf home movies, guys.
