Description

What would happen to somebody who binged some 200 werewolf movies in a few short months? Find out as Gavin Baddeley talks about writing The FrightFest Guide to Werewolf Movies.

In the name of medical science - and because he'd been asked to write a book about cinematic shapeshifters – local author Gavin Baddeley binge-watched 200 werewolf movies in a few short months. The first thing he discovered was that while lazy filmmakers just squirted some ketchup on their mates and made another zombie snoozefest, or invested in some plastic fangs in order to shoot another cheesy vampire turkey, it takes a special kind of crazy to decide to make a low budget werewolf movie. But Gavin prefers crazy to lazy, so allow him to take you on a lurid tour of cinema's weirdest bouts of full moon lunacy, from Jackalman perverts and Nazi wolfmen, to lycanthropic nuns and werewolf Man United fans.
