The cop genre is pretty picked over. Police films have been popular since the early days of cinema and reached their apex in the gritty cinema verite films of the 70's like The French Connection and Serpico. Add to that all of the great crime procedurals that have been on television and you've got a trope that has been done to death. Especially the alcoholic, washed-up, brooding "bad" cop type character. But what if you took that same boozy ass cop with a five o'clock shadow and made him a werewolf? You get Wolfcop, that's what.
The film is about a washed-up jerk alky policeman named Lou that is the embarrassment of the force in a small town. The local loon, Willie, tells Lou that there are Satanists in the town and that some suspicious deaths were done by them. Lou then gets himself cursed with lychanthropy. Now, I'm going to dwell for a second on Lou's first transformation into Wolfcop. He is taking a piss in a urinal when his penis starts shooting blood out of the tip. The penis then tears apart as a giant wolf dong flops out. The rest of his skin then tears away and he turns into a werewolf created with the do-it-yourself kit from Party City. Wolfcop then decides to take on the bad guys in the town, who by the way are Satanic shapeshifters, with his new werewolf powers. It turns out that the big baddy is the chief of police...dum! Dum! Dum!
I cannot express to you how simultaneously amazing and horrible this film is. It looks like something a small town video production class made on the weekends while taking lots of crystal meth. And yes, Wolfcop 2 is coming soon.
