Netflix Movie Pick of the Week (April 6-13): Wolfcop
Move over, Sharknado, there’s a new most ridiculous movie on Netflix, and it’s called Wolfcop.
Wolfcop is the story of an small town police officer, Lou Garou, who transforms into a werewolf but retains the ability to think and act somewhat human because of his alcoholism. Crazy? I thought so, too. Apparently, Garou’s excessive drinking enables him to be both a werewolf and a police officer at the same time.
One night, Garou is called to investigate a disturbance in the woods. Shortly after, Garou is knocked unconscious. When he wakes up in the morning, Garou has a pentagram carved into his torso, but he remembers nothing from the night before. Shortly after, Garou makes his first transformation into the Wolfcop.
As it turns out, there’s a pressing matter facing the town that needs fixing and someone needs to investigate. Why not the Wolfcop?
Written and directed by Lowell Dean, Wolfcop is, hands down, one of the most ridiculous movies I’ve ever seen, and I loved every second of it. The story is wonky, but it’s a story. There’s a beginning, middle, and end, so that counts for something.
Wolfcop isn’t a good movie. In fact, it’s borderline terrible as the title suggests. However, if you’re able to embrace your inner Natasha Bedingfield and release your inhibitions, I think you can have a good time watching Wolfcop just like I did.
