MTV released the first ever teaser trailer for their forthcoming “Teen Wolf” TV series that’s a series redo of the incredible 1980’s coming-of-age horror flick starring Michael J. Fox. While MTV has done a pretty good job with their made-for-TV movies, I’m absolutely appalled by this teaser trailer that I’d love to piss all over. It features horrid exposition (“…you mean you! You did this to me!“), a complete destruction of the original film’s mythology (the lead isn’t born a werewolf, hence removing the “coming-of-age” underplot of the feature that made it so compelling and relatable), a gross Twilight production value, while even lamer the lead plays lacrosse (WTF lame) instead of basketball. The only thing it has going for it is that the effects appear to be practical and it reminds me vaguely of Ginger Snaps. I’ll give it a go, but I cant say I’m not disappointed already with what Russell Mulcahy (Razorback, Highlander, Resident Evil: Extinction) has placed in front of me. What say you?
