The Wolfman Cometh!

– – Is it here yet?- -Is it here yet?- –You gotta excuse me if I sound like Eric Cartman or perhaps Bart Simpson, but I just can’t wait for the February 12, 2010 arrival of The Wolfman. – – Can you blame me?!

The cast of the 1941 original was awesome, with Lon Chaney Jr,  Claude Rains,  and Bela Lugosi on board, but this remake will have Anthony Hopkins, Benecio Del Toro (the Wolfman), Emily Blunt, Hugo Weaving, and Art Malik.  Universal is striving to re-image their classic horror masterpiece, and from all I have read, does a great job!  Ain’t no school like the old school…

So bring on the slavering man-beast, and let’s do something dastardly and perhaps scandalous to fair maidens as they run through the moors!- –Let’s go where the wolfbane blooms, and the autumn moon shines at night!- –Heck, I wanna live there!

    From the previews I’ve already seen of this remake, it’s set in Victorian times. Whereas the original was more or less contemporaneous with the year of its release. That is; Depression-era 20th century.

    I can just picture TV ads for the DVD, three months from now.

    “Clap for the Wolfman. *CLAP-CLAP-CLAP-CLAP!*
    He gonna rate your record hiiiiiiigh!”

    On a more serious note.

    Last night’s telecast of MONSTERQUEST dealt with the recent emergence (publicity-wise) of a Bigfoot-like creature in Kentucky. Dubbed “the Hillbilly Beast” (by the writers), it allegedly feeds on white-tail deer, and allgedly dwells in the temperate swamp lands between the Ohio and Tennessee Rivers.

    Now, I stress the adverb “allegedly,” because the one photo taken of it (via motion-activated camera trap) was proven to be mistaken identity. What I initially thought was a mammal resembling an African gorilla, and sitting in a fetal position, actually turned out to be a bird coming in for a landing on a dirt road!

    A forest ranger with the Kentucky Fish and Game Department thinks all the sightings are of mistakenly-identified black bears. My only question is: doesn’t he think that folks born and raised in this region(and who’ve hunted and fished in these woods dozens of times) might know the difference between black bears and unknown anthropoids?

    The Cherokee of the Bluegrass State have no doubt it exists. And, they claim it follows the streams that flow through these swampy woodlands. Which confirms the long-winded observations I made earlier (i.e., way back in the article on the Colorado Snowbeast.

    Sorry if I jumped the proverbial gun.
