Plot
These days, nobody just “makes a werewolf film”. Writers, today, have to address lycanthropy in a broad context and with a unique perspective. Dances with Werewolves is a combination of old school and modern werewolf mythos. Its monsters are treated like vampires, succubi, and werewolves, in fact, combined into one species, fully aware of their affliction.
There’s a romantic lesbian vibe, but not down to the details, though most characters spend time horizontally. Everyone’s fucking, but there isn’t that much skin. The female characters are more interesting than their male counterparts, who are pretty much all arrogant and aggressive. There are virtually no transformation sequences, and the creature make-up is minimal but efficient.
The gore is intermittent, but it’s there. Most actors are convincing, but those who aren’t can be obnoxious. The character of Jay Nightraven, for instance, ruins the best moments. The acting is not always the problem. Sometime, the dialogue is cringe-worthy. The casting is not optimal. All in all, Dances with Werewolves is pretty competent and above par in this subgenre.
