I like my werewolves to be wise-cracking maniacs with a penchant for punny one liners. Lucky for me, Big Bad Wolf delivers exactly that. I mean, why just rip off limbs and rape hot chicks when you can do it AND make sarcastic jokes?
The movie starts out with a couple tried and true clichés: first, “the old-hunting-trip-in-some-mysterious-forest-gone-wrong” and then the “old-kids-going-camping-in-the-middle-of-the-woods.”
But, then the movie takes a turn for the unique and interesting. Most of the kids are dispatched by the titular wolf, save a nerdy kid and his slutty friend, within the first ten minutes of the camping trip. Then the film switches it up and turns into a “I-think-my-stepdad-is-a-werewolf-we-should-find-out-by-giving-him-a-BJ-and-testing-the-DNA” film. If I had a nickel for each time I have watched one of those…
Clint Howard (Ice Cream Man) and David Naughton (American Werewolf in London) make appearances along with a host of other horror genre related homages. Kudos to the filmmakers, they show a true love for the genre – which makes the viewing experience all the more memorable.
Chocked full of sarcastic wit and slutty girls practicing the art of fellatio, the film delivers exactly what camp fans love. It has a little bit of everything and a whole lot of guts and boobs. Need I say more?
At its roots, Big Bad Wolf is a campy B-horror movie with shades of the 80’s sprinkled in. It’s bloody. It’s gory. It’s damn fun. If you are a fan of horror comedies and you haven’t seen this, you best check yourself before you wreck yourself.
