Wolfen

Filed under: movies — mahou @ 8:56 pm

Really fresh looking film, unlike anything I’ve seen in a while. The hippy sentiments are out of step with the excellent source material though, and the expected call to arms at the end is rewritten in a American Indian Earth Mother style that doesn’t make much sense.
Gregory Hines is a revelation in this film with a great performance and the Wolfen, when you see them, are impressive. This deserves a remake with Strieber’s original ending.
8.5/10
