The Wolfman is out now. In brief, it's a mildly enjoyable, mercifully short slice of low fat horror cheese. It has some completely stupid bits, a lot of cliches and some terrible acting, but what do you expect?

It's called a Technology College now, whatever that means. They must have bought a computer since I was there.
INSIGNIFICANT OBSERVATION #3
