When will I learn that a great premise doesn’t necessarily mean a film will be great or even good. Just like the enjoyable Werewolves Within, the similarly titled Beast Within is a werewolf whodunit that references the party game. However, that is where the similarities end. The acting in Beast Within is woeful. There is no emotion, no chemistry, and no believability in most of the characters. When the werewolf is finally revealed, that particular character becomes a bit more three-dimensional and believable. I don’t know how much of the film’s issues lie with the bad writing or directing.
“It’s no longer a game.”
Presented in director-approved 4:3 pan and scan for your VCR viewing pleasure, Werewolves Within is on VHS, tape fans! Presented by Broke Horror Fan, and officially licensed from RLJE Films and IFC Films, with original artwork from Neil Fraser!
