‘Wolf Cop’ needs to get onto the silver screen and you can help to make that happen

(Note: The trailer above contains some gore.)
Law Enforcement officers and werewolves usually don’t mix. In many cases, law enforcement officers shoot up werewolves and the werewolf usually loses. What happens if a law enforcement officer becomes a werewolf? He becomes the long hairy arm and claw of the law.
In Wolf Cop, sheriff deputy Lou Garou responds to a call. He attempts controlling the situation, but the situation goes awry. He soon becomes a pistol packing and badge bearing werewolf while dealing with his alcoholism.
Watching the trailer brought back the campy 80′s horror films. Wolf Cop, a horror-fantasy film, has that campy feel to it, the analog costume and makeup, and the low budget. This sounds like a great film and I cannot wait to see it, if it even means driving up to Canada to go watch it in theaters if that happens.
The strong point about Wolf Cop is the werewolf. I have always been a big fan of actual makeup and costumes use over computer-generated images. Seeing a hairy bi-pedal werewolf wins over the generic wolves or shirtless men seen commonly in moves and television of today in my book.
Wolf Cop is currently in development . The release date isn’t known yet, and that may depend on its success in winning a film acceleration program. This sounds like a straight-to-DVD movie.
Do you think Wolf Cop should run on the cinema screens? There is a way that can happen, and you can help make that happen.
On March 1, Wolf Cop launched their Cinecoup campaign, a film acceleration program that challenges filmmakers to promote their films. Of the 90 entrants, one film will be chosen to receive CAN $1,000,000 and a theatrical release in January 2014 at Cineplex cinemas in Canada. To make it happen for Wolf Cop, visit www.cinecoup.com/wolfcop, rate it and comment. Your vote and comment can help make that happen (you will need to register to vote at Cinecoup’s website).
You can also go howl in on Twitter at www.Twitter.Com/WOLFCOPTheMovie (and use the hashtag #WOLFCOP).
Wolf Cop may seem like a campy, fun, low-budget film, which I always have a spot in my werewolf heart for. It is certainly earned my howl of excitement to see it. I hope Wolf Cop does make it on the, ahem, silver screen. If it doesn’t win a place on the cinema screen, I will still see it on my puny screen at home. This is a great concept, and werewolf movies of today are long overdue for a new concept.
