The Wolf of Snow Hollow (2020)
November 26, 2020 6:53 AM - Subscribe

Terror grips a small mountain town as bodies are discovered after each full moon. Losing sleep, raising a teenage daughter, and caring for his ailing father, officer Marshall struggles to remind himself there's no such thing as werewolves.

89% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes: The Wolf of Snow Hollow treads somewhat unsteadily between horror and comedy, but writer-director-star Jim Cummings' unique sensibilities make for an oddly haunting hybrid.

rogerebert.com: More than just your standard horror/comedy, “The Wolf of Snow Hollow” is a tonal balancing act, a movie that doesn’t go for laughs or horror as much as weave various tones and styles through its excellent script.

Distribution was hampered by COVID-19 lockdowns, the film is now available to rent/buy via Amazon Prime.

I thought this was a real gem of a small scale horror movie. While there were a few comedic beats, imho it was closer to a straight horror movie than something like Slither or Shaun of the Dead. There is some real verisimilitude to the character moments, looks like the writer was really drawing from some lived experience.
