Exciting. Fun (comedy / horror / mystery). ;) Entertaining, beautiful environments, but you see this once. Passes the Bechdel test.
This isnt a movie about a wolf or a wolverine, its a movie about a police officer struggling to keep his shit together, should be renamed to "Sheriff of Snow Hollow"
I was a fan of Cumming's "Thunder Road" so I was interested in checking this one out. This time around, Cummings gives his own comedic spin to the horror genre as the story revolves around a small town sheriff (Cummings) investigating a handful of grisly murders that seem to be at the hands of a beast-like creature.
I think Cummings was able to hit this on the mark; balancing the line between horror and comedy well. The horror parts are good and are pretty gruesome which took me by surprise because I did not expect that level of explicitness from a comedy director. He is also able to instill his type of humor (semi stream-of-consciousness monologues, long takes, etc.) into the movie but it's a bit more subdued. And It has to be in order for his comedic style to work with this type of genre and plot.
The reveal at the end was a bit weak. It won't take you long to figure out what's going on when the scene unfolds but I thought the resolution was satisfying.
I think if you're a fan of Cumming's comedy and his types of characters, you'll enjoy this one. He did a good job of mixing in his humor while still maintaining a suspenseful, creepy tone. If you're not familiar with his work, you might find his character a bit annoying but I think the story and the action sequences will keep you engaged.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
