Description

Easily the funniest horror-comedy since Tucker and Dale vs. Evil (and, as a spin-off from the VR game of the same name, one of the best video game movies), like a great werewolf design Werewolves Within gets the balance between laughs and shrieks just right. Both are tough. The best cinematic lycanthropes aren't just an actor with some big eyebrows and fake fangs, nor are they just a wolf. Instead, they're something in-between, and that's a terribly hard equation to crack (the history of werecinema is crammed with stunt performers draped in fake fuzz and stumbling around on weirdly angled stilts). But writer/director Josh Ruben, who turned heads with his feature debut, meta-horror Scare Me, nails the required crackerjack comedy pacing, and balances that with some genuine big scares and big creeps. References to horror classics are liberally scattered, but not just as in-jokes. Instead, they twist through the script's DNA. Small-town paranoia mixes with high-speed hick comedy, and the end result? Imagine if The Thing dropped into the middle of Letterkenny, and you'll catch the perfection of the fusion of this yokels versus lycanthropes hybrid.  Richard Whittaker - Austin Chronicle.
