Before watching “The Devil’s Rock,” a 2011 horror film from New Zealand and now available in the United States, take a quick look at the film poster. A demon woman, decked out in a Nazi uniform, is splattered in blood and holding a knife. You see this poster and you think you’re probably going to get something like one of those Ilsa films from the seventies. Surely there can’t be a great movie hiding behind this awful poster, can there?

Werewolves are all the rage these days with the release of Universal's "The Wolfman", but why should the dog boys of mid February get all the fun? Throughout literature and film, there have been quite a few other were-creatures that stalked the night as well as many other folks that just happen to change shape as well! So to celebrate our furry friend, I give to you 8 Other Shape Shifters to raise your hackles!

Animals. They come in all shapes and sizes, textures and dispositions. Some of them you can't help but to grab hold of, squeeze hard and whisper sweet nothings in their ear. Others, you can't help but to grab hold of them, squeeze hard, and never let up until their eyes pop out.

Based on a beloved kiwi fantasy novel, "Under the Mountain" is the latest film from "Black Sheep" director Johnathan King.

You can’t throw a rock in the horror section of your average video store without hitting a movie about something cute and innocent that wants to kill you. We’ve seen killer clowns, evil dolls, rabid grannies, murderous children and giant-sized versions of everything from ants to bunnies. It was just a matter of time until some filmmaker (most likely from either New Zealand or Wales) got around to making a movie about killer sheep. The Kiwis did it in 2006 with “Black Sheep”, a blood and guts soaked black comedy that nicely balances the humor and the horror.

Vaginal "Teeth" and "Black Sheep." Quite the interesting double feature.
