Wer (2014) Review:

Wer, by the director of the mediocre The Devil Inside, brings us the werewolf story at the found footage sauce. At first, I really wasn’t appealed by the concept at all, but I must confess that the movie was much more entertaining than I imagined it first.

The best aspect of the movie might be the character of the werewolf himself: a giant, quiet, and really impressive hairy dude that will probably remind everyone of the massive Michael Myers in Rob’s Zombie’s Halloween remake. Another great point of Wer is how rationally does the film tackles the werewolf curse concept. Here, there is no full-on transformation and crazy creatures, only a man with a supernatural medical condition. All this makes the story quite credible, which in turn helps the movie to build some good tension.

One problem, however, is the found-footage aspect. Let’s face it, it is absolutely useless in that movie, and it does bring anything at all apart from the annoying shaky camera moves. I couldn’t find any info on the budget allowed to the movie, but it does look small, especially when considering how imperfect the CGI special effects look. This said the fighting scenes are so brutal that even with poor special effects, they remain very impressive.


In conclusion, Wer is a good surprise, maybe a little too long for what it has to say (and it’s only 90 minutes), but I would be the first one to give 10 bucks to see that exact same movie remade without the found footage aspect and some Hollywoodian special effects instead.
