I like movies, but only the good ones!
You’d probably never guess that this film is actually based on a video game, but you’d be wrong. In fact, Werewolves Within currently stands as the highest-rated film based on a video game on both Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes, and with good reason. Although the film has issues in various aspects, they’re rather minuscule for the most part, but I’d rather focus on the good rather than what little there is of this film I’d consider “bad.” Directed by newcomer…
If you've previously seen The Minimalists' first Netflix documentary, then this one might seem almost unnecessary. I mean, it was well done but most of what this film had to offer had already been said or established in the first one. I like The Minimalists themselves (as well as the director, Matt D'Avella) but their scripted scenes kind of took away from the film for me, especially since we had seen and heard all of this before.

I love these sorts of slow-paced, atmospheric horrors, especially when they're not American (no offense, America). Although this film won't be for everyone and the feelings of terror are subtle and more complicated then, say a slasher flick, 'Without Name' is not without fear. It's just of the unusual kind.
It's a beautiful film to see, complimented by a good cast and an intriguing story that takes its sweet time to unravel...and even when it does reach the end, it still remains mysterious and open-ended. Good stuff, but don't come at me if you didn't feel the same way!
