Inspired by the classic Universal film that launched a legacy of horror, The Wolfman brings the myth of a man cursed into lycanthropy back to its iconic origins and stars Academy Award®-winner Benicio Del Toro as a haunted nobleman lured back to his family estate after his brother vanishes. Reunited with his estranged father (Academy Award®-winner Anthony Hopkins), he sets out to find his brother...and discovers a horrifying destiny for himself. Also starring Emily Blunt and Hugo Weaving.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Suitably grand and special effects-laden, The Wolfman suffers from a suspense-deficient script and a surprising lack of genuine chills.

Common Sense Says
Official monster remake is extra gory -- and a bit flat.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Wolfman (starring Benicio Del Toro and Anthony Hopkins) is an extra-gory remake of the same-named 1941 classic (starring Lon Chaney Jr.). The new film is filled with slashings, slicings, and dicings, with lots of blood, gore, and body parts, as well as guns and shooting, scary nightmare sequences, and loud noises. The main female character (Emily Blunt) never develops much of a personality and seems too passive (a wasted opportunity to improve upon the original film). In other words, this movie is only for your oldest teens even if it looks like it could go with other sort of "super hero" genre movies.
