Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The familiarity and predictability of its scenario about co-dependency in the lower depths make the relatively short Canadian indie seem longer than it is.
Fresh: A stark, disquieting portrait of a pair of recovering drug addicts trying to scrape by in the suburban wilderness of Cape Breton Island.
Fresh: McKenzie has effectively drawn us in, although lack of narrative makes the film frustratingly slow in spots.
Fresh: In plumbing the pitch black, Werewolf offers the distinct hope of a brighter future - at least, a brighter future for Canadian cinema.
How far do you want to go?
Unflinchingly honest and arresting, this film is a slow swirl down a drain into a grim portrait of one of Atlantic Canada's unspoken epidemics. Rewarding performances combined with a beautifully haunting visual aesthetic and solid writing makes Werewolf easily one of the loudest-quiet films I have had the pleasure of watching.
