WER is a new take on the werewolf legend as presented in a found footage camera style (even when it doesn’t make sense to shoot that way in quite a few scenes).  Kate Moor (A.J. Cook) is a lawyer who is assigned to defend Talan Gwynek (Brian Scott O’Connor) who is accused of brutally murdering a couple and their son.   Kate thinks she has a defense due to the condition that Talan suffers from, but she soon learns the same condition makes Talan very dangerous.   She puts head with a detective Klaus Pistor (Sebastian Roche) with some dubious motives over a land deal that fell apart involving the land of Talan’s family.

 

Romania is posing for France in WER and you can’t even tell that the movie wasn’t filmed in France.  I find it interesting that they try to tie in lycanthropy with an actual medical condition and follow through with the method of how it is transmitted to another person.  Also it proves how dangerous a werewolf can still be.  However, the weak point of WER is the relationship drama as Kate hires an animal expert (who also happens to be her ex-boyfriend) and he clashes with Kate’s investigator as they engage in a movie long pissing contest (I bet they should just get a room).  Other than the love triangle that doesn’t quite work, WER works as a slightly new take on the werewolf movie trapped up in a variety of formats like the police and lawyer drama, found footage drama, and horror film.   WER is definitely worth renting.
