Hello!

Recently @spideyivydaredevilfan26 was kind enough to review my Jason Voorhees 1-4 arc I did as part of the Horror Inc group. In return, I would review something of their's and so hence the title quid pro quo or for you non Latin speakers this for that.

(The film begins with the vintage Universal opening of the 1940s.)

lycanthropy, (from Greek lykos, “wolf ”; anthropos, “man”), a supernatural condition in which people actually assume the physical form of the most dangerous beast of prey of the region, usually a wolf…

This how the remake of @spideyivydaredevilfan26’s Wolf Man begins, then from there takes you on a journey that will easily make you forget the terrible film starring Benicio Del Toro, (who btw is a fine actor just in a terrible film)

The Good

The first four chapters are solid, setting up the characters and the narrative. SIDF26 has also “cast” wisely, in that if this were a film, he’s utilising the acting talents of Gary Oldman, Elijah Wood and Idris Elba to play the lead and support characters (also it gives the reader a visual on what they look like)

The Bad

Well not that its bad, but it’s a script!

Now most CV fan-fic people are scriptist, its true, myself being one of them. Scripts convey no emotion, making the reader guess how lines are to be said. The only other bad point is that the first four chapters are mainly set up, which is necesary but could possibly lose people.

Overall

The Wolf Man is a solid B!

Thanks so much man, really appreciate it! Got some great stuff to look forward to for the next chapters! :)

BTW, sorry to dissapoint you, but there is a great deal of my remake that is based of of that "terrible film starring Benicio Del Toro". Hell, there were even a few lines from that movie I put into the script. ("Lo and behold, the prodigal son returns", "You dismiss the natural man at you're own peril", e.t.c) I always found it to be a lot smarter and a lot more emotionally driven than people gave it credit for, IDK.


As for the script thing...It was a necessary evil for basically trying to show off the story as a movie. I'll probably try and tweak my writing tactics to compensate for the way I write. :)

However, most of it is my own spin on the classic story, with big splashes of inspiration from both the 1941 and 2010 Wolf Man movies.
