Topic: Brotherhood of the Wolf - anyone remember this movie?

I still havent seen it but I have heard over the years it was pretty good. Its pretty much like Ghost and the Darkness with some over the top horror mixed with real life events.

I heard there's like a 2 disc collectors directors cut French edition or something?

Re: Brotherhood of the Wolf - anyone remember this movie?

I've seen and love it.  Mark Dascascos doing a little martial arts, a nifty wolf (try and catch him slinking around in the dark backgrounds), and some nice spooky.

Don't know anything about the DVD versions, though.

Re: Brotherhood of the Wolf - anyone remember this movie?

I remember this being a big deal among horror and action fans back during its release, but it didn't do a lot for me.  I'm a fan of Mark Dacascos (Only the Strong, bitches!) but the mishmashing of genres and use of then in-style HK-type action left the flick feeling schizophrenic to me.  Great cinematography, though.

Re: Brotherhood of the Wolf - anyone remember this movie?

This is still one of my all time favorites.  Some of the best martial arts in any movie ever imho.  I thought it was the perfect mix for me of horror, martial arts and hot naked women.  Plus Dacascos and Vincent Cassel...awesome. 

I don't know about the two disc either.  If you do see it though, I'd recommend getting it on disc and checking out the extras.  They have a fight that was cut out that is awesome.

I need to watch this again.

Yeah I'm with Lon on this one, I appreciate the movie, but it just didn't quite do it for me. I haven't seen it since it's release though, so my opinion may change with another viewing.

Re: Brotherhood of the Wolf - anyone remember this movie?

This is an awesome movie. I wish they'd do a great Blu Ray version for the states. The French blu is supposed to be great, but my blu player isn't all region...

Re: Brotherhood of the Wolf - anyone remember this movie?

I enjoyed it quite a bit.  In fact it is in one of my top tens...

Don't know about 2 disc but i know there's a 3 discs dvd CE set.

Nice movie. Mark Dacascos kicks some butt. It's a beautifully shot period film although there's some weak CG involving "the beast".

Check some reviews for your BR player.  For some reason, a bunch of BR players are lax on locking down BR regions, unlike DVDs.  My BR (an LG) even plays Region 2 DVDs. 
And with BR players' better CPUs and USB connections, there are ways to circumvent DRM.  Not that I or this site condone this, mind you.

I've been meanign to check it out, a co-worker kept mentioning this movie to me and the real life story it was based on and it sounds creepy as hell. The story does anyway. I think this is the reminder I needed to check it out.

Re: Brotherhood of the Wolf - anyone remember this movie?

Nice flick, I like how it diverges from the usual horror storyline. Don't see any resemblance to ghost and the darkness.
