‘Sequels are a disease. Meet the cure.’

Another WolfCop is a 2016 Canadian comedy horror film written and directed by Lowell Dean and is obviously a sequel to his WolfCop (2014). It stars Leo Fafard, Amy Matysio and Jonathan Cherry.

The film made its worldwide premiere at the 2016 Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas. It was released by Parade Deck Films in select US theaters and on VOD from December 1, 2017.

Having saved Woodhaven from a gang of evil reptilian shapeshifters, alcoholic werewolf cop Lou Garou is finding it hard to keep a low profile. Instead, he roams the street at night, gleefully and violently disposing of criminals and stealing boxes of Liquor Donuts causing all sorts of problems for his former-partner-turned-Chief of Police Tina.

Things begin to look up for the loser residents of Woodhaven when a billionaire businessman announces he’s reopening the local brewery to produce Chicken Milk Stout, as well as gifting the town with its very own hockey team, the Darkstars.

However, the unexpected return of an old friend (who now sports a large foul-mouthed mustachioed phallus) and a strip joint bloodbath alert Garou to the rise of something evil to the town…

Reviews:

“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.” Blair Hoyle, Slasher Cinema

“With its inventive kills, its buckets of blood and gore, its excessive nods to Canadiana, ridiculous sensuality, and surprising puppetry that fuses elements of Alien with twisted nostalgia for 90s-era PSAs, the film succeeds. It’s an over-the-top and crude flick but, then again, it’s hard to deduct marks from a movie that set out to be those things in the first place.” Addison Wylie, Wylie Writes

“While the narrative is not the most complex […] it’s that elevated exploitation film approach that allows Dean as a filmmaker to change the levels of storytelling humor without having people feel like it’s ego over creative control and talent. This also goes hand in hand with the practical side of the film as we see the filmmaker raise the game on FX, prosthetics and makeup…” Jay Kay, Icons of Fright

“There is ribald humor and gross-outs to spare, with highlights including an extended man-on-were-cat sex scene, and a talking phallus that emerges from Willie’s abdomen (at least we hope it was his abdomen). It’s low-brow in the extreme, but why complain when that’s what it’s trying to be?” Thomas O’Connor, Sordid Cinema

” … there’s an alien invasion, a massacre in a strip joint called Club Phuque, and a deadly hockey game. Not all the jokes land, but many, many do, and there’s something satisfying about the legitimate Canadian-ness of the whole thing, delivered as it is by actual Canadians…” Phil Nobile Jr., Birth. Movies. Death.

Another Wolfcop still has the core of what we loved about the first one while improving on the formula. Our beloved characters all return, this time with more experience under their belts. The gags are even funnier, and the cameos are insane. […] It’s a side-splitting, violent sequel that gives fans exactly what they want and more. I’m ready for Wolfcop III, Mr. Dean.” Meagan Navarro, Modern Horrors

“Garou’s sophomore outing is overstuffed with lifeless jokes about his furry junk (including an explicit full frontal crotch shot), his Popeye-like mainlining of alcohol, and his colleagues’ relative incompetence. Everybody in Another Wolfcop is supposed to be a bit of a bummer to hang out with…except Garou. This is especially unfortunate since Fafard, an amateur actor whose most distinguishing feature is his bushy, Eric Bogosian-like eyebrows, just isn’t very charming.” Simon Abrams, RogerEbert.com

Another WolfCop is such a marked improvement and fulfills the initial promise of both the franchise and the filmmaker. This film superbly builds on the “universe” he laid out and takes it up several notches. With Dean’s continued creative involvement, it’s going to be onwards and upwards. And speaking of onwards and upwards, yes, we get a Mt. Everest-calibre shot of wolf dick.” Greg Klimkiw, The Film Corner
