WEREWOLF: THE BEAST AMONG US started out as another remake of THE WOLFMAN before mutated into a direct-to-video movie I have just seen.  It isn’t a bad movie, but it feels like something you would see on Saturday night on the SyFy Channel.  The story follows a young man as he joins a group of hunters in tracking a werewolf.  They find out the werewolf is tracking certain people as the Eastern European town grows impatient with the progress of the hunters.   The film does have some good production values by filming in Romania and the actors are up to the task (with some of the hunters being the stand out characters). It does add one interesting thing to the werewolf mythos before descending into predictable territory.



The deleted scenes add nothing to the movie and I can see they were cut for pacing reasons.


MAKING THE MONSTER is a promotional making-of featurette

TRANSFORMATION: MAN TO BEAST takes a behind-the-scenes look at the costume work and CGI used for the werewolf in the film

MONSTER LEGACY ahs cast and crew talking about joining the legacy of classic Universal horror movies.


Rounding out the extras are previews for other Universal Studios releases and an audio commentary for the movie.


FINAL ANALYSIS:   WEREWOLF: THE BEAST AMONG US is a good direct to DVD product that feels in place with SyFy Channel Saturday night movies and decent enough for a rental.  Am I going to remember it?  Probably not since it doesn’t step out to be something great.  It only steps out as average solid entertainment.
