Game of Werewolves has all the makings of a great midnight movie […] It is fun, fast paced, and full of schlocky, glorious gore and personable characters that you like and feel for. It seamlessly blends slapstick and splatter, and the end result is a blast from end to end.” Brent McKnight, Beyond Hollywood

“Sit out the massive amounts of exposition, daft humour and dull filler scenes, and there are some pleasing moments of gore and carnage to be found. When the action finally kicks off, the film starts to live up to its title. A mass transformation scene (amusingly lit in a manner similar to Thriller) is genuinely impressive, as is one car chase and a bit with a throttled granny.” Joel Harley, HorrorTalk
