another wolfcop thumbs up review leo fafard

Does Another WolfCop deserve a thumbs up? WolfCop says yes!!!

Lou Garou (Leo Fafard) finds the legend of WolfCop is spreading as the town of Woodhaven adopts WolfCop as its unofficial mascot.  When a businessman named Swallows (Yannick Bisson) selects Woodhaven to be the home of his new brewing company, Woodhaven’s future begins to look up…but Swallows might not be all that he seems.  The return of Willie Higgins (Jonathan Cherry) and the appearance of a strange android could mean danger for the people of Woodhaven but fortunately Woodhaven has WolfCop protecting it!

Written and directed by Lowell Dean, Another WolfCop is a horror-comedy sequel to the 2014 film WolfCop.  The film received a rough cut release in 2016 at Fantastic Fest with the final version being released at Fantasia International Film Festival the following year.

WolfCop was a fun, goofy movie that promised a sequel in the credits.  Another WolfCop with its poster as an homage to Sylvester Stallone’s ’80s action film Cobra promised to be more of the same…and it was.

The film aims to please with fun and gore.  The story takes all the Canadian stereotypes and wraps it around a werewolf action picture.  You’ve got a megalomaniac business tycoon making stout chicken milk brew, hockey, and an extremely relaxed approach to law enforcement.  The story at times is too clever for itself and should sometimes stick to being basic because the contrast is sometimes too great.  The balance is tough on this film since it is a horror comedy, and it often becomes uneven.

The cast is rather solid.  Leo Fafard is rather bland so it is fortunate he spends much of the movie as the werewolf who has a bit more personality.  Amy Matysio is a solid back-up for Leo Fafard, but Jonathan Cherry is a bit too over-the-top in an over-the-top movie.  I like the Yannick Bisson businessman who seems to be channeling Rob Lowe, and the film decided one werewolf wasn’t enough by adding Serena Miller (for werewolf sex scenes).

Because you demanded it…more werewolf sex!

The film does look rather good, but once again, it is intentionally low budget.  It is an odd film in that it doesn’t have the complete cheapness of a B-Movie, but it also isn’t up to par with other big werewolf films like An American Werewolf in London or The Howling (despite both of those being made over thirty years before WolfCop).  The changeling babies are pretty cheesy though.

WolfCop was both blessed and cursed with being a parody film, and Another WolfCop follows in its paw-prints.  The film is unapologetic in its goofiness, but it sometimes overplays its cards when it should real in the comedy a bit.  The films play out almost like a TV series in the vein of Ash vs. Evil Dead and the comedy could maybe work even better in that format.  Like before, Another WolfCop promises that the WolfCop will return…we’ll have to wait and see.
