Somehow I managed to get more than halfway through this marathon without writing about what and why I'm doing it. Weird! Well, better late than never!

You all know I'm a huge fan of marathons, and with a Twilight film on the horizon I'm of course going to tie that into to a marathon. I decided to go furry this time round and hide away the silver, as I present The Wolfathon: a marathon to explore werewolf films in anticipation of the 2010 release of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.

Werewolf films tend to be way less popular than their often screen foe the vampire, but creature will all be treated equally here at Movie Moxie. Also, they do always come back such as this years The Wolfman (2010) which I rather enjoyed. So, bring on the fun, gore, guts, mayhem and hopefully a few creative interpretations along the way as we take a look through films that flourish under the full moon.

Titles up for consideration to be reviewed include: Ginger Snaps, The Fury of the Wolfman, Brotherhood of the Wolf and The Howling. Feel free to make suggestions if you have favourite werewolf films!

Great! I love wolves and werewolves :) I agree they do seem to be less popular than vampires. Well how about reviewing a film showing a fight between the two: Underworld? Or if you want it to be wolf-specific, have you seen Neil Jordan's The Company of Wolves?

I was thinking about doing some hybrid ones as their own marathon at some point. Hmm. I love the 1st Underworld film and it's the only one of the three that I've not reviewed so far!

I totally want to see The Company of Wolves, it's on my list but it's a little harder to find that some of the other ones. Here's hoping it comes my way!
