If you guys have been reading here for a while, then you know we’ve covered the award winning film Wolf Cop quite extensively. We have news regarding this highly anticipated horror comedy from writer/director Lowell Dean. For those of you Canadian readers out there, you’re the lucky ones who will be able to see the film in select Cineplex theaters on June 6th, 2014. Read on for more details.
For those who might not be familiar with this project, let me clue you in. A Wolf Cop trailer was entered into the Canadian CineCoup film competition along with 91 other prospective films as a way for independent filmmakers to develop, market and finance their feature films with the help of social media. A two minute trailer which you can see below has been filmed in which to enter the CineCoup competition in which 92 films were entered. Filmmaking teams applied to CineCoup with a two-minute trailer then advance through a gamified selection funnel that’s designed to package their projects and build fan support on the CineCoup social web platform. The films did not exist aside from the trailer, and if victorious, get $1 million dollars to film the project and are guaranteed a release in Canadian theaters.
Wolf Cop emerged victorious last year and was given $1 million dollars to complete the film. Shooting began this past October in Canada, now the film will be hitting Canadian theaters this June 6th. Personally, I have been waiting like a rabid…wolf to see this film and am highly anticipating its release here in the States.
Directed by Lowell Dean (13 Eerie) and starring Leo Fafard, Amy Matysio, Jonathan Cherry, Sarah Lind, Aidan Devine, Jesse Moss, and Corinne Conley.

It’s not unusual for alcoholic cop Lou Garou to black out and wake up in unfamiliar surroundings, but lately things have taken a strange turn. Crime scenes seem oddly familiar. Lou’s senses are heightened, and when the full moon is out, he’s a rage-fueled werewolf. WOLFCOP is one cop’s quest to become a better man… One transformation at a time.
