Trivia

The 'Summer of Love' is actually a cultural reference to the year 1967, not 1969 as claimed in the movie's official description. See more »

Goofs

When the detective states "rash of home invasions lately"..the term was coined 20 years later as this takes place in 1969. He should have said " rash of burglaries lately" would have been more accurate. See more »

Some Good Stuff But Also Quite Strange
28 July 2017 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Wolves at the Door (2016)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Based on the Manson murders, this film centers on four friends who gather at a house to celebrate but soon are faced with the ultimate terror.

WOLVES AT THE DOOR opens up with one of those "based on a true story" things that you've got to read. This was a decent movie but at the same time it somewhat made me violently angry with it. You have to wonder what the filmmakers were trying to do with various aspects of the film but on the whole the movie kept me entertained and I thought it was well-made for the most part but at the same time there were a lot of things here that left me scratching my head.

For starters, the total running time without the end credits was just 66-minutes, which is a very rare thing today. I'm not going to complain about short movies but what's interesting about this picture is that there's zero character development. Normally this would be a problem but I just figured the filmmakers already expected you to know the events and characters so there was no need for an introduction. With that said, if the filmmakers expect you to know the characters then why did they change the story up so much?

The murders, how they happened and so forth have been changed and re-arranged to the point where you're basically watching a remake of THE STRANGERS instead of an actual Manson movie. If one is coming here for a Manson movie then they're going to be disappointed. At the same time, for "younger" viewers, I wonder how many of them know the true story so perhaps they won't mind the "violence" being re-done yet they're going to be hampered by not knowing the characters and this is where the character development might have helped.

As I said, the story's development left me scratching my head but at the same time there were some very good things here. The opening sequences was extremely well-directed and I thought it had some nice tension. The performances were another good thing with Katie Cassidy doing a nice job in the role of Sharon Tate. Elizabeth Henstridge was also quite good. The people playing the "family" are pretty much left with no lines or anything else and in fact you never really get to see them clearly.

WOLVES AT THE DOOR pretty much ends just where you think it would get started. Again, I can respect and enjoy the short running time and there's a lot of good things here but at the same time there's some bizarre choices made.
