Making its debut later this weekend at Fantastic Fest, Another Wolfcop sees the return of it’s alcoholic lycanthropic protagonist Lou Garou as he and his posse of small-town sidekicks battle “an eccentric businessman with evil intentions seduces Woodhaven’s residents with a new brewery and hockey team.” Sounds…interesting? Definitely has a Kevin Smith vibe to it which makes sense considering writer/director Lowell Dean’s respect for his fellow Canadian filmmaker.
It should also be noted that Dean is continuing his commitment to practical effects, something that received a good bit of praise in the original Wolfcop. In a recent interview with Expert Comics, the director shared his thoughts on the matter:
I find, and this is my personal opinion, that even AVERAGE practical effects are more charming and heartwarming than average VFX. Average VFX just feels dead to me. And I will always go practical over digital unless I’m making a 150 million dollar movie.
