I originally rated this a 9/10 when I watched the MKVs of the 3 main edits. I rewatched all the edits on DVD, including the bonus edits.
This is a fantastic set of edits. They’re loads of fun for horror fans and I can’t recommend this edit enough. It was great seeing Wolfman movies from different eras of filmmaking (40s, 70s, 2010s) all made to look like they were made around the same time.
(NOTE: “Degree of Editing” is a 100% arbitrary rating that I keep in mind when reviewing edits. This is not meant to insinuate that a faneditor is lazy or not. Some fanedits require a lot more work than others and I take this into account.)
Rogue offers us a double bill of Wolfmen action with his Super 8 collection.
Both segments run about 17 minutes so go by incredibly fast. The stories center strictly around the Wolfmen so are extremely easy to follow.
The 1941 part is a lot of fun but special congratulations are in order for the second part; Rogue managed to edit something modern into a believable 40s style Super 8 film. Through the “dirtying” of the film of course but also in the way his edits are made; not only by his condensing of the film to its new 17 minutes run time but also in the micro-editing. His attention to detail to the editing techniques of the time is remarkable. I was thoroughly impressed and had incredible fun watching it.
Although, to me, the primary goal (and also the fun) of those super 8 edits Rogue is now known for is to turn recent movies into old looking super 8 cuts. So the 2010 movie is, to me, the real interesting edit of the three. Not to say the other 2 are not good, but the old look of the 2010 movie is so well done that it stole the show. Bravo.
