I first encountered “President Wolfman” at the Wasteland Horror, Drive-In, and Grindhouse Film Festival held every two years, completely oblivious to the film beyond the premise of watching an entirely made film. from recycled footage. Most of “President Wolfman” was made from footage of the truly disgusting Dean Stockwell “The Werewolf of Washington”, (also on Tubi), a 1973 horror “comedy” meant to satirize President Nixon.
The film uses clips from “Wolf Werewolves” along with vintage international Coca-Cola commercials, short films you might watch in a 1983 health class, old PSAs with cheap production values. – all Frankenste comes together to create the final product. Filmmaker Mike Davis claims that “President Wolfman” includes 112 different pieces of public domain and stock footage, with a re-edited script that magically ties it all together.
“President Wolfman” is done with the tongue stuck to the cheek, with its envelope-push humor (and often offensive racism) somehow becoming a real satire. smart about American culture, politics, and B-movie making. “Werewolf President” isn’t trying to offend for the sake of shock, but to show how problematic the B-movie genre can often be. It’s as if someone with an AI geeked out watching “Mystery Science Theater 3000” in its entirety and trying to make a movie of their own using pre-existing scenes, and somehow it works beautifully.
