“Little pigs, little pigs, let me in!”
“Not by the hair on my chinny-chin-chin!”
“You’d better let me in, or I’ll huff and I’ll puff, and I’ll rip your guts out!”
Big Bad Wolf is a bloody good time bursting with bestial carnage and hilariously clever dialogue making it as offensive as it is brilliant. A heaping serving of sexual depravity and dismemberment makes this werewolf feature unlike any other and most likely anything you’ve ever seen before. This one goes down as a guilty pleasure film that you won’t be able to look away from despite the ethical feeling that you should.
In an attempt to get some social acceptance, Derek takes four college peers and his friend Samantha to his stepfather’s cabin off Fire Road 13 for a night of booze and debauchery. Their partying is awkward at best but things get seriously messed up when the big bad wolf arrives and rips the college kids apart. Derek and Samantha were able to escape but Samantha suspects that Derek’s stepfather is the wolf which isn?t much of a leap since the guy is a major asshole. His date book adds to their suspicion, with out-of-town appointments listed on every full moon, but still they?re going to need more to go on besides a creepy coincidence. The issue then becomes what Derek and Samantha must do to confirm that he is in fact a werewolf and how to put an end to him once and for all.
Samantha: It was a werewolf.
Derek: No, Sam. That’s impossible.
Samantha: It was a full moon, it was walking on two legs, and wearing pants, oh! And it was fucking talking to us! What the hell else could it have been?
Big Bad Wolf is a one part sexual sadism, one part gore, one part family drama, and a one part mischievousness horror cocktail well worth the taste it?ll leave in your mouth. While from the storytelling perspective the film is easily predictable, it’s the gore and humor of the film that will catch you off guard. Actually, if you’re a horror loyalist you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how fun this film is; but, if you’re squeamish you’ll likely bail out after the cabin massacre. The final showdown of the film features some quality horror comedy and gory greatness so you have to stick with it to really appreciate what Big Bad Wolf has to offer. Besides, there’s plenty of blood spill and gags along the way to keep your interest if you are prepared to accept and enjoy this film for what it is and not get too hung up on being quick to compare it to other horror features. This one belongs in a class of its own; granted it’s a gruesome class full of gratuitous blood covered boobs and sexual cynicism but that’s what I’d call a good time, wouldn’t you?
Cassie: I like your tongue piercing.
Samantha: Thanks… I guess.
Cassie: Do guys like, like the way it feels when you, you know?
Samantha: Why don’t I blow your boyfriend, you can ask him?
Cassie: BITCH! I was just asking!
Samantha: And I was just telling.
A prerequisite for this film is a fair warning and an open mind since, as I’ve suggested before, this film is not for the faint at heart. It is however, a riot and worth the risk of watching.
Alex: You animal! She was a virgin!
Wolf: Well, she ain’t anymore!
There’s an abundant serving of nastiness and all those other things you want but won’t be admitting anytime soon, but it’s hella fun so don’t fret! Big Bad Wolf is a standout amongst the other werewolf horror films as it uses it’s cunning and sadistic style to prove that this beast is nothing like the Wolfman of yesteryear.
