Amusing French horror comedy, that is neither dry/funny nor horrific/gory enough to make a lasting impact. It's a solid film, with a commendable lead performance of Bajon and some quirky moments, but I wish the Boukhermas would've taken things just a little further.
Teddy is an outcast who doesn't fit in with the rest of his town. When he chases down a wolf in the forest, he gets bitten. Soon after Teddy starts to notice some odd changes in his body, next to a sudden craving for human meat. He suspects he is turning into a werewolf, but he doesn't want to alarm the villagers.
There are some kooky/tragic characters, the mood is pretty light and the dialogues are rather funny, but the comedy is neither dry nor sharp enough to carry the film by itself. The horror elements are timid in comparison and are there to advance the story rather than stand on their own. Good fun, just nothing exceptional.
