Ambiance
For a werewolf movie to succeed, two criteria must be met. First, the beast itself must be photorealistic. Second, the transformation(s) must be explicit. Most werewolf films neglect these elements and perhaps shouldn’t exist in the first place. Here, ten minutes in, we see our first werewolf. It starts with a silhouette through the curtains and it soon escalates into a full-blown attack.
The most peculiar aspect of Late Phases is that the second act takes place between two full moons, which creates a big gap where our beloved veteran works out and gears up, being the only character in the whole movie remotely aware of what’s going on, for some reason. It’s refreshing to see such an imperfect protagonist face his weaknesses with such determination.
He’s blind, he’s old, he’s an asshole, but he has acute senses and he can use a gun and a shovel like no one can. You know how just about almost every lycanthrope movie has left you insatiate in the past? Well, be patient and give this one a chance. It will satisfy you beyond your wildest dreams. It is worth the wait. The protagonists are colorful and time with them is time well spent.
