Fingers crossed there’s going to be a sequel to Jermaine Clement’s and Taiki Waititi’s vampiric mockumentary What We Do In The Shadows (2014). And one which concentrates on its break-out stars, the Werewolf Pack. The “Werewolves, not Swearwolves” line is the most quotable of the movie and viewers fell in love with the gentle, benign werewolves who really didn’t want to hurt anyone. (I like to think their characterisation was an homage to the New-Age masculinity of Oz the werewolf in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, 1997-2003).
As part of the Company of Wolves conference (3rd-5th September, 2015), Lorna Jowett from the University of Northampton will be giving a talk entitled: ‘Swearwolves and Werewolves: Mockumentary, Masculinity and Mundane Monsters’. So to learn more about Rhys Darby’s Anton and his pack before they become mainstream, you’ll need to be in attendance which you can achieve by registering here. (But remember naughty-language will be judged harshly!).
As for movie, I’m just hoping they have open auditions. I think what’s missing from the cast is a foul-mouthed she-wolf to disrupt the pack.
