Cuts and Additions:
The Wolfman (2010)
1. created new opening and closing titles
2. aged audio/video
3. removed several charachters from the film to move the story along in the alloted time (18mins)
4. removed as much cgi/flashy camera movement shots as possible
5. when Lawrence first transforms into the wolfman, i edited several of his attack scenes into one combined sequence
6. There was some problematic audio during the scene where the Wolfman attacks the puppet show, i did the best i could to have this audio match up with the rest, its quite close i think.
7. alternate ending (in a manner of speaking)

The Wolfman (1941)
This edit is based on a review of an actual super 8 digest of the film, i tried to get it to
match what the review described as much as possible.
I cropped/reframed the image to 16/9 animorphic and applied a sepia tone and gave it a super 8 look.
The credits in the movie could not be cropped/reframed to 16/9 properly so
i crafted new ones inspired by the original credits. I removed a few
refrences to the charachter Bela since he is not in this edit, but i left his name in the credits.

Atom Age Wolfman (The Mad Monster(1942), Dead Men Walk(1943))
1. when making this edit, i tried to imagine how a super 8 enthusiast might go about making a fanedit with the equipment at hand (not a computer), i roughly cut in new titles that resemble home painted title card’s. These movies were not of the best quality so i did my best with what i had.
2. cropped/reframed to 16/9
2. added parts of the opening monlogue from Dead Men Walk
3. cut pretty much all of the secondary charachters and only kept scenes of the wolfman doing wolfman stuff
4. tried to focus on the unintentional humor this movie has
5. alternate ending

A very nice collection of edits.

Although, to me, the primary goal (and also the fun) of those super 8 edits Rogue is now known for is to turn recent movies into old looking super 8 cuts. So the 2010 movie is, to me, the real interesting edit of the three. Not to say the other 2 are not good, but the old look of the 2010 movie is so well done that it stole the show. Bravo.

I already want the next super 8 edit by Rogue!

8/10

I originally rated this a 9/10 when I watched the MKVs of the 3 main edits. I rewatched all the edits on DVD, including the bonus edits.

This is a fantastic set of edits. They’re loads of fun for horror fans and I can’t recommend this edit enough. It was great seeing Wolfman movies from different eras of filmmaking (40s, 70s, 2010s) all made to look like they were made around the same time.

FANEDIT RATING – 10
Audio/Video Quality – 10
Visual Editing – 10
Audio Editing – 10
Degree of Editing – 10

(NOTE: “Degree of Editing” is a 100% arbitrary rating that I keep in mind when reviewing edits. This is not meant to insinuate that a faneditor is lazy or not. Some fanedits require a lot more work than others and I take this into account.)

MOVIE RATING – 9
Narrative – 8
Enjoyment – 10

The Welcomed Return of Rogue’s Super 8 Edits!
What a wonderful surprise.

Once again Rogue proves his amazing ability of being able to boil a story down to it’s bare essence and still engage and entertain an audience.

Of all the classic Universal Monsters, the Wolfman is by far and away my favorite monster.
Thus I eagerly downloaded Rogue’s Halloween Treat and was not disappointed.

I should note, I was only able to download Wolfman 1941 and 2010, as Atomic Age Wolfman would not download.

Of the two, the 1941 version retains much of the look and feel of the original. The edited storyline flows really well, almost too well. Even at less than 20 minutes it still feels like an old time Universal movie. I suppose that is testament to the quality of the production and it’s agelessness. I think I would have liked to have seen a bit more aging effects or stuttering or crackling sound. That said, I greatly enjoyed it. It was a real HOWL!

The 2010 version was a joyful surprise! I loved what Rogue accomplished with this much maligned and criticized movie. His
Super 8 effects and editing injected some much needed energy and style into this disaster of a remake. I truly LOVED this edit. It is fast paced, crazy, kinetic and held your attention. An amazing improvement over the original, and again less than 20 minutes long!!! Well done Rogue!

If you love the Wolfman, I highly recommend these two edits.
Looking forward to seeing Rogue’s final werewolf entry!

Until then, beware of when the wolf bane blooms and the autumn moon is bright!

I cannot believe that I never got round to rating this! Neglify’s views mirror my own, so I shall give it a 10 too. This edit is highly recommended.

Admittedly, I skipped the 2nd movie. But this sort of Cliff’s Notes version of these was a lot of fun.

Mostly, I really enjoyed the 1941 The Wolfman. Everything important was condensed perfectly; it had a great setup and a strong finale.

For the 2010 version, I think you proved that, even with that movie’s terrific visuals, nothing can make that movie work. The characters are NOT engaging, the pacing is slow, and there’s no one to care about. But none of that is your fault. Again, the way you boiled it down was really well done.

I’d've liked to have seen a DIFFERENT b&w/scratched film effect on the 2010 version, as seeing that it had the same scratches and pops in the SAME places was weird and a little distracting, but it was just all in good fun. So nice work!

Rogue offers us a double bill of Wolfmen action with his Super 8 collection.

Both segments run about 17 minutes so go by incredibly fast. The stories center strictly around the Wolfmen so are extremely easy to follow.

The 1941 part is a lot of fun but special congratulations are in order for the second part; Rogue managed to edit something modern into a believable 40s style Super 8 film. Through the “dirtying” of the film of course but also in the way his edits are made; not only by his condensing of the film to its new 17 minutes run time but also in the micro-editing. His attention to detail to the editing techniques of the time is remarkable. I was thoroughly impressed and had incredible fun watching it.

9/10.
