WOLF GUY

WOLF GUY REVIEWED

“Wolf Guy” deserves to be seen by everyone. If you know a blind person, let them hear the movie and then describe the visuals. For those that need their hand held, Sonny Chiba plays a warrior werewolf. Still with me? Well, the government wants his blood to make super soldiers. There’s also an undead cabaret singer, a mystery killer and real surgical footage edited into this film for no real reason. It’s not Italian shark attack movie bad, but it’s pretty impressive.

On that same tip, what was the deal with the musical score? It sounds like Euro porn, but I desperately want to own it on Vinyl now. Toei is that classic Japanese studio that modern American audiences still don’t embrace. Chiba, animation adaptations and the classic Samurai films were great, but lacked the dignity of a Toho production. Toei wants you to feel the grim and sweat in their up-close carnage. That being said, this is still a street cred movie. Before Arrow released this film on Blu, it had never been released outside of Japan.

Archaic manga adaptations are kinda like that.
