The Good:
I liked the “midnight movie” cheesiness of the film and the setting it in the 1980s was a good move. Also the idea of a werewolf cop doing battle against shape-shifting secret societies is just ridiculous enough to work.
Plus you can’t hate any movie that does an extended sex scene between a werewolf and a sexy bartender in a jail cell complete with a cell full of candles (for romantic lighting) all done to the sounds of “Moonlight Desires” by Gowan (thank you, Shazam!).

The Bad:
WOLFCOP is cheesy like it is supposed to be but not nearly as much fun. I expected this film to be completely over the top with the comedy part of its “comedy-horror” but it played things a bit too straight for my tastes instead letting the inherent goofiness of the subject matter be enough. But for me it wasn’t.

The Ugly:
Man, I hated the way the were-wolf face make-up looked.

Final Verdict:A cheesy, goofy film that is not nearly as much over-the-top comedy wise as it should be. There is more than enough to satisfy any discerning fan of the “midnight movie” types of films and is definitely perfect for cult film fans to latch onto.

Grade: C
