Eight for Silver Is a Gory, Mostly Successful Reinvention of the Werewolf Movie
Why does every werewolf movie have to be so similar? Is there a law that states the creature only comes out during a full moon, must be super hairy, and can only be killed by silver bullets? Of course not. And Eight for Silver, the new film by writer-director Sean Ellis, purposefully throws most of that out the window. It’s an attempt to tell a brand new werewolf story, one that’s set in the past, is delightfully disgusting, and even tries to tug at your heartstrings.
