"I can't believe we've got peanut butter and jelly for lunch."

Having no idea this movie even existed, I was surprised to come across it late one night on cable. I thought it might be good for a few laughs. While it is worth a chuckle or two, ultimately it's not as much fun as I hoped it would be. The plot's a rather involved one that starts in the 1970s where a crazy soldier who was part of a mission to take down a werewolf injects himself with werewolf blood. For reasons, I guess. Then he's cryogenically frozen for twenty years by bad guy Barry Bostwick. In the present day of the 1990s, some scientists led by Kim Delaney are working on creating a new type of artificial skin to treat cancer patients and the like. Bostwick comes in and takes over the experiment, forcing them to test their new skin on his frozen werewolf guy. Long story unfortunately not short enough, the werewolf awakens with super strong skin that makes him even more indestructible than he already was. He goes on a killing spree and you can pretty much figure out the rest. It's a cheaply filmed bit of business with Kane Hodder in the cheesy werewolf costume. Barry Bostwick provides some fun but Kim Delaney treats the whole thing more seriously than it deserves. It's goofy and unintentionally funny at times but, as I said already, never as much fun as you want it to be. Still it's pretty watchable so give it a shot if you like low-budget '90s horror.

I defend this neat Werewolf film

Werewolves...Kim Delaney...and Kane Hodder as the creature. How bad could this possibly be, I wondered. The signs weren't good though. Bashed all over the net, released straight to video and hard to find on VHS. Well, I certainly didn't regret watching it. For me it was filled with pleasant surprises and loyal to the traditional "werewolf-rules"...This means a full moon, silver bullets and bloody massacres. Although the director is rather unknown ( at least, he was to me ) he had to change to work with some great actors. The above mentioned Kim Delaney ( my second favorite B-movie queen after Barbara Crampton ) and Kane " Jason Vorhees " Hodder ( he was also the stunt-coordinator ) Miller, the major villain in the story, also looked SO familiar. And after about 10 minutes it popped in my head : he's the funny mayor from Spin City. That was a pleasant surprise. And then for the most important factor about a movie: the story. I think, no matter what everyone says, that it was rather good. Sure, it had a few holes and the "creating the ultimate warrior" thing is far from original, but still...it keeps you very well focused. In order to create a new and much stronger breed of warriors, two soldiers are sent to Hungary to find the blood of a werewolf. One of them dies but the other one returns with the blood. Impatient as he is, he can't await the scientists and decides to inject the blood in his body. He becomes a werewolf and starts a killing spree. He gets shot by Miller, the brain behind the whole operation, and is frozen. 20 years later Miller finds out about a group of scientists who gained success by replacing normal skin by implanting metal skin. Miller sees his chance to continue his search for the ultimate warriors and orders the group to use the frozen corps for their further research. The werewolf elements are still active ( although I gotta admit he looks more like a giant hedgehog now ) in the corps and in combination with the metal skin, he soon becomes a very dangerous killing machine.... It sure can't live up to the older werewolf movies from the 40's, 60's and 80's but this still is a good effort in the genre. You have to take a risk from time to time to keep the field of horror interesting and the makers of this film did that. I thank them for that and I hope this film gets more appreciation someday. Until then, I'll do my part and recommend it to as many people as possible. Hence, this review...

Capcom must've seen this flick while making Resident Evil.

I bought this movie from a video store that was going out of business and the cover caught my eye, plus reading the very brief and cheesy back sold me into buying it. This is a good movie, it is a little cheesy but I must say, I think the Video Game company, Capcom, saw this movie and heavily used parts of this for the game Resident Evil. For example; replace Albert Wesker from R.E. with Barry Bostwick, the Tyrant with a metal werewolf and keep the main characters pretty much the same. The way Barry Bostwick dies is the same way Albert dies and the same for the werewolf dying just like the Tyrant. The story simply goes like this; in 1974, the US military goes into the Carpathian forest to find a werewolf to get it's blood and use it's DNA to create the ultimate biological weapon(like Resident Evil again)but one of the men gets too cocky and takes the blood himself and all hell breaks loose (close enough to RE to mention it again). Barry Bostwick manages to take down and put the cocky werewolf guy in deep freeze until 20 years later when technology has advanced enough to resume the project. Of course, the werewolf gets loose again and causes havoc again or else there wouldn't be a movie. It was entertaining and had some really good special effects. 7/10
