Love Bite review

A werewolf-com that’s more howler than Howling

A host of Brit TV faces assemble for this horror-comedy barrel-scraper that’s part Inbetweeners , part Dog Soldiers gone to the dogs.

Ed Speleers is the teenager trying to romance American blogger Jessica Szohr, whose party piece is swallowing bananas and who’s reluctant to go out while there's a full moon….

It’s a long 35 minutes until the bodies start appearing, during which the film relies on sixth-form knob gags and Timothy Spall eating scenery as a riddle-spouting wolf slayer.

Forget any traces of werewolf credibility - watch this only for Robert Pugh as a copper trying to bring Met tactics to Herne Bay.
