In celebration of All Hallows’ Eve I give to you Trailer Friday the first special edition of my Tuesday feature. In this inaugural edition I am going to share a trailer for a remake a classic horror film from the Universal vault. Nearly 70 years after the original film was released we have a new version of The Wolfman. Staring Benicio Del Toro and Anthony Hopkins The Wolfman is set to release early next year, check it out.
Scary? Not so much. Cool? I think so, and that’s my one real concern about this movie. The effects are solid, the actors are capable but I’m not quite sure if the tone is right. The hip music and glossy visuals kind of worry me, they give me a Van Helsing or League of Extraordinary Gentlemen vibe, which is definitely not a good thing. Hopefully it’s just the way they cut the trailer, because if they can keep the tone of this movie dark and mysterious I’ll definitely give it a look.
On another note I wanna talk about the logo for a second. Here it is if you need a reminder already.
I know it’s nothing amazing and not entirely original but for some reason the simplicity of this logo struck a chord with me. It’s nice to see a horror movie with a nice clean and understated logo, not everything needs to be bloody, grungy and/or hard to read.
