To celebrate the re-release of Dog Soldiers in a 4K remastered version, we sat down with the film’s writer/director Neil Marshall to chat about all things werewolves.
Initially released in 2002, the film has gained a worldwide cult following for its humour, its horror, and, of course, its werewolves. Chatting to Marshall, he told us about the film’s genesis and journey to get it to the screen, the decision to have two-legged werewolves rather than four like John Landis’ An American Werewolf in London, “hiding” the transformations due to budgetary restrictions and lack of real CGI alternative as well as telling us how Carry on Screaming help to frame said sequences in the film.
We also touch about rumoured sequels, why the film has endured and his excitement about his new film The Reckoning, in which he enjoyed the creative freedom to make the film he wanted.
