Wolfman howls once again

17 Feb

On February 12th a 2010 version of the classic werewolf tale called “the Wolfman” opened in theaters. I’m beginning to wonder what exactly caused this recent interest in the supernatural in both films and television series.

The Wolf Man (1941).

It would seem a little pretentious to claim Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight Saga as the main force that ignited this type of interest in mythical creatures. Typically known for being a  vampire series, the Twilight Saga also  features werewolves. More recently, steamy teen heart throb Taylor Lautner took the part of Jacob Black, a Native American werewolf in the Twilight Saga’s most recent film “New Moon.” Perhaps this has raised a little more interest in all things canine.

Apparently there is a long history of werewolves on the silver screen, going all the way back to a black and white 1941 film called the Wolf Man. Below I’ve included something from the New York Times website that I found particularly interesting in my pursuits of pop-culture werewolf anthropology.

    I am disappointed Professor Lupin from Harry Potter was no included in the New York Times timeline.

    And as we learn, Tay Lauts McYummy is not even a werewolf, he’s a freakin shapeshifter… disappointment.

    Also, I would appreciate it if you refer to my future husband as Tay Lauts McYummy from now on it you’re posts…

    🙂
