The Wolfman (2010)

A vivid and exceptional visual depiction of 19th century England in this horror about a werewolf in Blackmoor. I have found that period horrors are common place to find stunning design and cinematography, probably due to the effort that goes into the creation of a world now gone. It is in this that “The Wolfman” is in it’s element. Fusing wonderful production design with great cinematography.

Written by Andrew Kevin Walker, who also wrote “Sleepy Hollow”, this certainly holds those familiar traits of sinister and dark plot contrasting the simplicity of the 1800’s and the complexity of superstition and the supernatural.

It is a very good watch and performances are strong throughout, I especially enjoyed the visual parade of fanciful imaginings through lighting and sound design.
