Eh. We can all find examples of werewolves that were worse than the super-lycan -- something I take as a bad sign... Anyway, it still wasn't anything to write home about. The one in Helsing, was almost a template of how a werewolf could be done right, however. Granted, I think going full CGI was unnecessary, and probably wouldn't have looked as good as a practical effects solution, but hey, it still looked good.

The design of the Van Helsing werewolves is amazing! I almost think it's just too much to hope that other films will do werewolves as well as they did. I also don't have a problem at all with fully CGI werewolves. It seems a lot of movie monsters and affects are CGI now and I think that at least for the big budget films and shows they do a really great job. I mean, if there were werewolves in Lord of the Rings I'm sure they would have been outstanding. I liked how they did the werewolves in the Twilight films *ducks to avoid being hit with rotten fruit* it's just a lot of crud to sit though if you're only in it for the werewolves.

LOL. Ok "shapeshifters" then. Personally I thought they were the best thing the series had going for it.

Edited to fix the quote bubble...which got messed up somehow. ??

Oh god. What would that look like..."He's like the original lycan. But bigger and more muscular, with a gnarly rugged look."

No, he looks like a living balloon animal werewolf that got burned in a fire. Somebody, please, give that guy some skin cream...*Shudder*.

Credit where it's due, they fixed the frog-like limb to torso ratio and gave him more wolfish features, even if he did look like a burn victim bulldog chewing a wasp.

But the #1 spot for the ugliest werewolf EVER!!! would have to go to the "Evil Ed" one from Fright Night.

No problemo! :lol: God how I love those 80's horror flicks. Some were so cheesy, and yet so awesome at the same time!

A little more on topic:

Bitten is a few episodes in to season 2 so far and it's going waaaay better than season 1. They've basically kept up a a fast pace with lots of action this time, and have introduced witches and magic. I think this season will really show the potential of Bitten.

I wonder who does the werewolf transformation effects for the series. They look good. Now where is Freeborn's version? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6APMu3OHcPw I still don't see her face transform on screen. (except as reflected in a woman's eye) Does her long hair grow back into her head or is it absorbed?

The plot sounds like the Kelly Armstrong novel by the same name. I didn't think the book was all that great, but maybe Syfy can do something with it and it won't be so -- oh, wait a minute, we're talking about Syfy here. It will probably be about the same quality as other great Syfy werewolf masterworks like Battledogs.
