So you knew I was going to do some research. Right?
I mean yes…I know that She-Wolf had a brief appearance in the THOH XX…really brief. But, I was curious if there have ever been any Female Werewolves in the movies. Lon Cheney Jr. was truly the most memorable from my youth. But the male versions show up all of the time in horror movies…with no memorable females.
And let’s face it…the TSTO version looks pretty dated. I mean, where does she shop…1955 with June Cleaver? “Hey…She-Wolf…it’s 1955, she wants her dress back!”
But, as it turns out…there are a handful of Female Werewolf movies…and one in particular looks hilariously scary…for all of the wrong reasons.
Oh. And I’ll also cover the details of She-Wolf in our games. Promise!
So…the five that popped up were:
An American Werewolf in Paris (1997)
An American man unwittingly gets involved with French werewolves who have developed a serum allowing them to transform at will.
Ginger Snaps (2000)
Two death-obsessed sisters, outcasts in their suburban neighborhood, must deal with the tragic consequences when one of them is bitten by a deadly werewolf.
The Howling (1981)
After a bizarre and near fatal encounter with a serial killer, a television newswoman is sent to a remote mountain resort whose residents may not be what they seem.
A werewolf loose in Los Angeles changes the lives of three young adults, who, after being mauled by the beast, learn they must kill their attacker if they hope to change their fate to avoid becoming werewolves too.
Trick ‘r Treat (2007)
Five interwoven stories that occur on Halloween: An everyday high school principal has a secret life as a serial killer; a college virgin might have just met the guy for her; a group of teenagers pull a mean prank; a woman who loathes the night has to contend with her holiday-obsessed husband; and a mean old man meets his match with a demonic, supernatural trick-or-treater.
Now…I remembered almost all of these. In fact, I thought American Werewolf in Paris was great! I am also a fan of Warren Zevon’s “Werewolves of London.” Such great lyrics.
But the one that looked the silliest, also had a redux…in the version of Ginger Snaps II (original name or what?). It gets a surprisingly high meta-score on IMDB (80), even with this description!
Ginger’s sister Brigitte, now a werewolf herself, must try to find a cure for her blood lust before the next full moon while hiding out in a rehab clinic from a relentless werewolf.
But I was happy to get She-Wolf. Every wolf needs a mate…and I bought the Wolfman. So…it only made sense.
She’s a full character…and the moon must always be full in Springfield…because she has no “other version” of herself.
Here are the details…
Act 2, Prize 6- She-Wolf
Has 4hr tasks to earn Event Currency via her task list. Does NOT earn Pickaxes for dig site.
Questline: Monster Physique Pt. 1
She-Wolf: After chewing on so many Springfield tubbos, I’m really feeling bloated. I think it’s time for me to cut down on meat-eating.
Squeaky Voice Teen: You could have just told me that without attacking me and pinning me down.
She-Wolf: I didn’t think of that. I’m new at this vegetarian thing.
TASK: Make She-Wolf Learn About Vegetarian Lifestyle- 4hrs, Earns 120 event currency and 45xp
Monster Physique Pt. 2
She-Wolf: I’m a little unsure about this vegetarian thing. Is a squirrel a vegetable? Is your brain?
SVT: No, no! My brain is way high in cholesterol and oxidants.
She-Wolf: I like you. You should be my health consultant!
SVT: Okay. I suggest you get some exercise and go for a good run.
She-Wolf: Where should I run?
SVT: Far away from me.
TASK: Make She-Wolf Go for a Run- 8hrs, Earns 240 event currency and 70xp
Monster Physique Pt. 3
She-Wolf: That was a nice run, but I need more if I’m going to get down to my ideal killing weight.
Gil: Try my primal workout plan! It’s perfect to help you unleash the beast! It’ll only cost you a hundred donuts!
She-Wolf: You give it to me free or I’ll get my primal workout tearing you apart!
Gil: Here you go. Ol’ Gil’s going primal too…living on the street.
TASK: Make She-Wolf do a Primal Workout- 4hrs, Earns 120 event currency and 45xp
Monster Physique Pt. 4
She-Wolf:I;m trying to get healthy, but I just feel drained all the time.
Dr. Hibbert: I’m not a vet, and not really much of a doctor, but I’d say it has to do with your sudden change in diet. If you don’t eat meat again, you might return to regular human form.
She-Wolf: Anything but that! I can’t go back to having to shave my legs! I can’t!
Dr. H: My official prescription is vitamins. My unofficial is…unsuspecting victims. *chuckles*
TASK: Make She-Wolf Return to Primal Ways- 8hrs, Earns 240, 70xp
She-Wolf: I feel so much better! I feel alive!!
SVT: I thought I was your health consultant.
She-Wolf: You were, and now you’re helping me have a balanced diet.
And That’s It...the Final Prize of Act II
If you are like me…and have been tapping every 4 hours…you got her days ago….and may now have enough donuts saved up to buy her a new dress. Oh…but it was possible. Something with a little pizazz to go with her “silky hair.”
But…don’t get too close…the wolfman is jealous dude. And it’s supposed to be another full moon in Springfield.
I couldn’t play much and got her down to 135 donuts. Anyone think she’s worth it? I did by wolfman so I’m tempted…
I love the Ginger Snaps movies!! There’s actually 3 of them, although the first one is the best,
There was “She-Wolf of London”, a syndicated TV series in the early 90s, as well. Not bad for its first season, which was filmed in England. Sank like a stone after they retooled and moved it to LA in the second.
That makes sense… everything gets ruined in LA.
HBO’s True Blood has a whole community of Werewolves. Some pretty fierce She-wolves there.
Wes Craven’s Cursed
Dark Shadows (film)
June Lockhart (aka Mom = Lost In Space) in 1946’s SHE-WOLF OF LONDON …. yeah it plays like a good noir murder mystery vs your typical horror film (but I ♥️ it) –
… I also think EA did a good job digging up Characters from various THOH Episodes this time (She-Wolf heckling her Wolf Man, Countess Dracula heckling She-Wolf … plenty of lol worthy dialogue) 😀👍
Favourite modern She-Wolf? Let’s just say there’s a good surprise towards the end of Neil Marshall’s DOG SOLDIERS ! 📽️📺
Just got it ! She looks pretty cool
Thanks for digging up that info Patric. May have to ck out those movies. I’ve been watching those old classic black all week.
The first Ginger Snaps movies was actuallly pretty good. They made 2 more. The second was not as good, but was still watchable. The third was terrible.
Imagine that! Lol!
Love the post and so loving having the classic monsters in the city.
No female wolfies in it but i like the sillier side…..Teen Wolf always cracked me up when i was younger. So stupid😁
Check out the TV series “Bitten” for a female werewolf.
Or the TV series “Being Human” or “The Originals”.
Thanks. I’ll pass.
She Wolf also has an 8 hr task that earns event currency!
The she wolf arrived in my Springfield this morning. Warren Zevon’s “Werewolves of London” album is still a favorite of mine. Great but disturbing lyrics that still apply today, e.g. “He’s just an excitable boy.”
Warren was the best. Great writer.
Thanks for the post Patric! I think She-Wolf is a great addidion to our cities 😁
