______________________________


These "October Horror Movie Challenge" threads are for the discussion of the films in the 31 FILM SUBSET list.

The plan is for everyone to watch this film on the October day in the thread title, and to start discussing it the morning of the following day.
You may start discussion early if you want, but the preferred plan is for this to be as much of a group exercise as possible, with all of us viewing it "together" and discussing after.

Of course, you are totally encouraged to participate in these threads even if you haven't watched the movie on the designated day.
Even if you haven't watched it in years, or are not participating in the Horror Challenge, please feel free to chime in.



Spoiler tags aren't always used in here, so if you have yet to see the film BEWARE OF POSSIBLE SPOILERS.

Eccentric film abuzz with personalities and a rich whodunit atmosphere. I didnt realize this was 'based on a video game' but can't hold that against it. It handled the assortment of characters well and Sam Richardson had a perfect subdued comedic presence. It was nice to find a film more upbeat and zany.

Re: "Werewolves Within" Reviews/Discussion - 2022 Horror Challenge

Fun film and very hard to believe it is based on a video game. If I had any criticism, it would be that the acting felt a little too sitcom-y at times - maybe it was just how broad the characters are. Or I guess it could be because I know pretty much all the actors from TV shows. I enjoyed the previous film this director did, Scare Me, as well.

Since I'm watching it for the werewolf theme, there was a point really late in the movie that I was kicking myself. "The werewolves are within! This isn't a werewolf film at all!" For the sake of theme compliance, I was relieved when the werewolf revealed itself. For the sake of the movie, I think it would have been even better if there was no werewolf at all and everything was just put into motion. Regardless, I had a good time watching it.

The blu-ray just arrived in the mail, looking forward to this one as Halloween closes out.

Watched this last year and enjoyed it. I thought Milana Vayntrub was really good in it and would like to see her in more stuff.

A fun film. It was nice to end things with some comic relief.

Great fun, not too taxing, and a nice middle-of-the-night movie to end the challenge. Like others, I don't quite understand the video game roots, but very entertaining.

I guess I’ll be the lone dissenter. I couldn’t get into this. It wasn’t funny at all and I found it pretty predictable. Horror comedies rarely hit with me though.
