Canada
Directed by Lowell Dean

Comedy, Horror
79 minutes
Rated 14A: violence; coarse language

In Part One of the hilarious and gory WolfCop double feature, we begin the night with the Canadian phenomenon that started it all!

It's not unusual for alcoholic cop Lou Garou to black out and wake up in unfamiliar surroundings, but lately things have taken a strange turn. Crime scenes seem oddly familiar. Lou's senses are heightened, and when the full moon is out, he's a rage-fueled werewolf. Wolfcop is one cop's quest to become a better man... One transformation at a time.
