WolfCop is an independent Canadian horror film with elements of comedy. It was written and directed by Lowell Dean and produced by RLJ Entertainment. It premiered to limited theatrical release in Canada on June 6th, 2014 and was also released direct-to-video on that same day.

WolfCop stars Leo Fafard as the appropriately named "Lou Garou", who is an alcoholic sheriff's deputy in the small Canadian town of Woodhaven, who not only nurses a perpetually filled whiskey flask, but also nurses some severe Daddy issues. The film also stars Amy Matysio as Lou's over-achieving partner, Sergeant Tina Walsh, with Sarah Lind as Jessica, Corinne Conley as Mayor Bradley, Jesse Moss as a meth-dealer and gang leader antagonist, and Jonathan Cherry as Willie Higgins. A sequel film, Another WolfCop, was released in 2018.

Notes & Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The tagline for this film is "Here comes the Fuzz". This is a play on the fact that werewolves have a fuzzy fur coating. "Fuzz" is also a slang term for a police officer that was popularized in the 1960s and 1970s.
- Another tagline is "Dirty Harry... only harrier".
- The film's soundtrack score was composed by Toby Bond and the band Shooting Guns. The score was released as a separate soundtrack on vinyl and cassette tape. The soundtrack was produced by One Way Static and released in September, 2014.
- The DVD release contains outtakes, most of which involve Amy Matysio making improvisational comments about the enlarged penis prop.
- There are a total of twenty-three credited cast members in this film.
- The central setting for this film is the fictional town of Woodhaven in the city of Saskatchewan in Canada.
- Lou Garou's name is a play on loup garou, which is the French word for werewolf.
- There are two types of supernatural creatures in this film; werewolves and shape-shifters. There is only one werewolf, though it is implied that Garou's late father was also a werewolf. There are three shape-shifters, who take on a reptilian appearance in their true form.
- The "Jessica" shape-shifter, who also doubled as the mayor, implies that she is actually male, not female, which in retrospect, would make her dalliance with Lou one of homosexual beastiality.
Explicit content[edit | edit source]
