WolfCop is one of the most unexpectedly enjoyable movies of the past few years. A film that knows exactly what it is, I wrote back when the movie premiered in 2014 that you can sign me up for the inevitable sequel. Well, the inevitable sequel has finally arrived, and it is more than worth the wait. Yes, Another WolfCop is even more fun than its predecessor.
Picking up a few months after the events of the original, Lowell Dean’s follow-up finds Sheriff Lou Garou (Leo Fafard) learning to accept his fate as a crime-fighting werewolf, with Tina (Amy Matysio) having taken over many duties as a police chief. When their old friend, Willie (Jonathan Cherry) returns from having been anally probed by a group of lizard people, WolfCop and company have to get creative in order to take down an evil brewery that threatens to destroy their small, Canadian community.
Just like its predecessor, Another WolfCop isn’t afraid to pull its balls out — literally at times — and that is what makes it such an absolutely ridiculous romp. Refusing to take itself seriously for even a moment, the film kicks off in a wonderfully bloody and vulgar manner and maintains that level of absurdity throughout. Any film that shows a massive werewolf dick in the first act has big shoes to fill for the second and third, but Another WolfCop manages to succeed with flying colors. With a brisk running time, the movie never overstays its welcome, which would have been easy given its subject matter.
Performances are high in comedic value across the board, but once again, Jonathan Cherry steals the show as a hilarious, politically incorrect and perpetually horny drunk in Willie Higgins. At a time when many comedies seem to be pulling their punches for fear of offending the masses, Willie serves as a beacon of light. In regards to using proper P.C. language, Willie seems completely unconcerned throughout, making him the most charming character in the film.
Like many movies of its nature, Another WolfCop knows exactly what it is, and if you think you’ll have a good time with the film then it’s almost a guarantee that you will. If you’re a fan of splattery, funny, and entertaining horror-comedies that are heavy on the action, then this movie exists for your viewing pleasure. Best enjoyed with lots of doughnuts and beer, Another WolfCop is another example of B-movie brilliance from the Great White North. If Dean and company decide to turn this into a trilogy, the third act can’t come soon enough.
