I first stuck “President Wolfman” on the bi-annual Cinema Desolate tract Horror, Power-In and Grindhouse Film Conference, realizing completely not anything concerning the movie rather than the idea of seeing a film made totally out of recycled photos. Maximum of “President Wolfman” is created from clips of the in reality abysmal Dean Stockwell movie “The Werewolf of Washington,” (additionally to be had on Tubi) a 1973 horror “comedy” intended to satirize the Nixon presidency.
The movie makes use of clips from “Werewolf of Washington” along antique global Coca-Cola ads, quick movies you’ll more than likely see in a 1983 well being magnificence, outdated PSAs with reasonable manufacturing worth — all Frankensteined in combination to create the overall product. Filmmaker Mike Davis claims that “President Wolfman” accommodates 112 other items of public area and inventory photos, with the redubbed script miraculously bringing all of it in combination.
“President Wolfman” used to be made with tongue planted firmly in cheek, with envelope-pushing (and incessantly offensively racist) comedy bits that come what may organize to transform a truly suave satire of American tradition, politics, and B-movie filmmaking. “President Wolfman” is not looking to offend for the sake of being surprising, however to show how ridiculously problematic the B-movie style incessantly used to be. It is as though somebody had an AI binge-watch the whole thing of “Thriller Science Theater 3000” and take a look at to generate a film of their very own the usage of the to be had photos, and it come what may works fantastically.
