Wolfman, The

 

USA 2010, 103 minutes
Dir. Joe Johnston
Genres: Horror, Suspense/Crime

 

Aroview: Disjointed remake of the Lon Chaney classic stars Benicio Del Toro as the broody beast, helplessly chowing down on Victorian London.

Although the moody atmosphere is spot on (thick fog, mental institutions, Anthony Hopkins), this suffers somewhat from an identity crisis, its uneasy mix of high camp and solemn pretentiousness ultimately gives us little to sink our teeth into. Still, the transformation scenes are well done and Del Toro is appropriately melencholy; if you're willing to turn your brain off, you could do worse than this hokey monster movie.
