***May contain some spoilers***
A dead beat cop named Lou Garou (Leo Fafard) is abducted by a group of cult members and strangely wakes up in his bed the next morning. When Lou wakes up, he starts to experience strange abilities such as hearing very faint sounds and growing excess hair. As such, Lou is slowly becoming a wolf. With a run-down, criminal infested town, Lou takes advantage of his newfound gift and goes on a killing spree as a vigilante. However, his gift as a wolf may have been someone else’s plan and soon Lou becomes the hunted.
WolfCop is full of blood and gore. The initial transformation scene when Lou first turns into a wolf is excessively grotesque. You will even see what a wolf dong looks like. Viewers will also see some decapitation and severed limbs in addition to blood splatter. This film will likely satisfy your thirst for gore.
The Grave Review
The plot of WolfCop is relatively simplistic and straightforward. But the element that gives this film a little rejuvenation, is it’s over the top ridiculousness. WolfCop is awkwardly funny, sexual and gory. But, these factors are not enough to save the quality and entertainment value of the film as a whole.
WolfCop (2014) provides some comedic relief throughout the film. Lou is accompanied by his acquaintance, Willie (Jonathan Cherry) who is present during Lou’s killing spree. The comments that Willie makes while these acts are going on are quite funny. One of the funniest quotes is when Willie says “You know, I think we need to lay low. There’s a guy running around with no face. Like you clearly ripped his whole face right off.” Much of the humor is dark and dry but amusing nonetheless.
There is also a soft-core bestiality scene. Had the scene not been accompanied by the remainder of the film, it could be mistaken for a late night HBO show. It’s interesting because the dialogue is almost as bad as one of those shows.
Overall, WolfCop (2014) is a fun, comical horror/thriller film. But what it shows in gore and sex, it lacks in substance. Nevertheless, WolfCop was entertaining and provided a different perspective on the classic werewolf story.
For the above mentioned reasons, Grave Reviews gives WolfCop (2014) a two graves out of five graves.
