It’s time to confess: There was a time when I was ready to walk past the wolf in the snow cave without looking or blushing. But then… I had the chance to listen to the soundtrack (an opportunity I rarely miss), and what I heard was so spectacular that I decided on the spot that I had to watch this film. It didn’t hurt that it was a werewolf movie (I loved werewolf stories before it was cool).
Actually, it’s a good thing that I waited so long after seeing the movie to get an idea, because after the credits I didn’t really know what to think about what I had just seen. But after some time of thinking, I can safely say that Wolf of the Snow Hollow is a great movie that is not at all what I expected.
Let me warn you, in case you haven’t heard: If you enter the Snow Hollow Wolf and expect a traditional werewolf story… you’ll be disappointed. This is not, as I thought, a traditional werewolf story, but rather a deconstruction. Jim Cummings (who also wrote the script, directed and acted in this film) took a number of traditional elements from the werewolf story and touched them in a completely unexpected way. One of them is the revelation of the toe wolf, whose execution bothered me at first, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that it fits perfectly into the deconstruction of the werewolf junk.
The only thing I still can’t figure out is how The Wolf of Snow Hollow combines comedy and drama. There are a lot of mood swings in this story. On the one hand I understand why, given what the main character is going through (which is actually quite long). On the other hand… It is very difficult to deal with and sometimes I had trouble concentrating because I didn’t know whether to laugh or panic. Speaking of terror: There are some shocking moments in this film. The gore, though flashy, wasn’t unexpected given the material of the story, but what really attracted me was that the troop of childish immortality was avoided (that’s when I realized that things would go to a whole new level).
However, I was glad to see that the music fitted as well as I thought in the whole movie. The problems I have with some of the plot elements are easy to solve when the music shifts into a higher gear. (For more information about the soundtrack, see my review of the soundtrack below).
Despite the bumps at the places Wolf of the Snow Hollow is very nice to look at. I don’t think I’ll ever look at werewolf stories the same way again.
