Okay, recession hit everyone hard. So I'm not gonna blame the makers of "Wolf Town" for charging me 8 for a movie that was produced for half that money. I can get past the fact that the entire "Wolf Town" was populated by a meager three wolves who kill by gnawing at life-sized dolls. Neither shall I complain that the special effects look like they were shoplifted from the local funstore (check out the red blubber that was plopped on Rob to pass for intestines). I'm not even gonna rant about the fact that they couldn't even be bothered to remove the wreckage of modern tractors from the scenery of a "ghost town from the 1800's". All those things require money, and it's blatantly clear that this cheap flick was made on a shoe-string budget.
But there can be no excuse whatsoever for the extremely bland and dumb story. Creativity and imagination are free. A decent filmmaker can make a great movie on a nickel and dime. "Blair Witch Project", anyone? But no-one involved in the production "Wolf Town" shows a glimpse of such talent. Therefore this is doomed to be a poor man's movie with a poor man's script. There are plot holes the size of Europe. So we're supposed to believe the wolves managed to sabotage a car, steal their cellphones and catch up with the idea of dynamite? The director stops quite short of crediting them with setting up the town's website to lure edible tourists. Even more irritating is the utter standstill that the story creeps in after fifteen minutes. The main characters run from one deserted house to the other, where they start to bicker at each other. After a while the wolves are fed up with their nagging and jump through a window. That's the sign for our jolly bunch to run casually to another house. That process is actually repeated six to seven times, I kid you not. To top it off the end leaves us with a wacky eco-message when the wimpy kid starts to understand the "motive" of the wolves, who just want the strangers to leave their cozy town. Wolf-children of the Corn, ay?
A final warning: those like me who love a good killer animal-flick and let themselves be fooled by the cover will find themselves howling at the moon in utter frustration.
