Anyone else seen this Canadian indie werewolf flick? I was shocked to find that it's actually a good horror movie. Those just...don't happen anymore. I rented it only because I remembered a friend recommending it a few months ago. If it wasn't for the rec, I wouldn't have rented it, as the box art looks none too promising.

Now, after seeing it a few times, I'm thinking about buying the DVD. Of course, if I did, I'd have to buy the Canadian version of the DVD, cause the American version sucks ass, only the movie and a trailer.

So uh, I guess the point of this thread was to recommend it, and to see if anyone else has seen it, and what they think of it.

I have it on DVD -- it's not bad. A lot of black humor, and a refreshingly realistic twist on the typical teens-in-danger horror movie formula. Things in the plot happen for a REASON, not just as an excuse for special-effects extravaganzas. Joe Bob sez check it out.

Well, assuming you have the Canadian "special edition" DVD, where did you get it? Just curious, cause I've been shopping around online, and the best price I can find on it is $16...but that place is frickin out of stock.

Nope, I've got the US version, so if YOU find the Canadian one out there, let ME know. ;)

Well, the movie's main site has links to where to get it

But, like I said, the cheapest of them is out of stock right now.

I can get the used version for $19.99 Canadian from Blockbuster up here in Montreal. If you're interested drop me an E-mail and maybe we can work something out.

(And yes the movie is awesome, although the ending is disappointingly normal. It's bit like the first American Werewolf film in that regard that starts out so well and then turns into just another horror movie in the last ten minutes. I love the bit where they go to the school nurse and she cheerfully explains the joys of menstruation to the girls and it just keeps getting worse and worse and worse.)

$19.99 Canadian...that's, what, 50 cents American?
