Werewolf by Night
After many series based on secondary characters from its universe, Marvel offers us something different with Werewolf by Night. A real tribute to the monster movies worthy of the Hammer. And to put this into images, the studio called upon the renowned music composer Michael Giacchino who is directing his first film (he also signs the music of course). This film also marks the first foray of Gael García Bernal into the Marvel universe. The story proposes us to follow a hunt for monsters that will give the winner a powerful stone. The gallery of characters is very cool with of course Gael García Bernal and Laura Donnelly in the lead. It is interesting to be on the side of the bad guys too. The old school aspect is very well done with a black and white aspect absolutely beautiful, the only touch of color being the bloodstone. The cinematography is also very well done as well as the small aberrations of the film (scratches and white spots). The movie is length is just below one hour and is a really entertaining to watch. We are looking forward for more shows like this one.
On a dark and somber night, a secret cabal of monster hunters emerge from the shadows and gather at the foreboding Bloodstone Temple following the death of their leader. In a strange and macabre memorial to the leader’s life, the attendees are thrust into a mysterious and deadly competition for a powerful relic—a hunt that will ultimately bring them face to face with a dangerous monster. Inspired by horror films of the 1930s and 1940s, the chilling special aims to evoke a sense of dread and the macabre, with plenty of suspense and scares along the way as we explore a new corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
