"An excellent parody of the horror classic. As a gay cult film fan I truly enjoy the total disregard of "politically correct". In fact, it is one of the many endearing qualities of this film. Rewatchable and a great source for interesting conversation with conservative coworkers that need their cage rattled a bit. Even those who have made the leap of "gay" as an adjective to "Gay" as a noun can enjoy a private chuckle at this one!"
Cheezarama!! But Funny As Hell!!

"This movie is histerical!! Total B movie! After the main star gets bitten by a drag queen, a gypsy fortune-teller reads his palm and sees the "pansy-gram". This is how he gets the curse of the queerwolf! You really have to see the movie to know how the curse is broken!"
This is so bad it is histerical

"I own this film on vhs and have enjoyed it over the years. This is truly a bad movie, but it is so bad it is campy. On that level, this is truly a gem. The acting is terrible as well as the film work itself, but the script is wonderfull and this is why the film actually works. It is well written and if it had a real budget, it could have been actually very good.
The concpet of the film is the hero goes out on a "date" and is bitten by what he thinks is a woman. When the moon comes out, Larry changes into a transvestite. Now add all of the cliches from hollywood about transvestites and horror films and you get the idea. It really does work on its own level.
If you want to spend time laughing, you have to buy this film. Just remember, it is terrible. It is terrible on the level of "bubba ho-tep", but with a much worse budget. Highly recommended."

"If I had my own private shrine honoring the all-time greatest producers of dirt-cheap, hilariously awful films, it would feature life-sized statues of two men: Conrad Brooks and Mark Pirro. Pirro is a new discovery for me, although he seems to be something of a legend among bad movie lovers and aspiring low-budget filmmakers. With no Hollywood contacts and almost no money, Pirro has made a career out of doing what he loves. Even a film like this one, Curse of the Queerwolf, can turn a nice profit since it was produced with a budget of only ten thousand dollars. I can't wait to get my hands on the other films in the Pirromount Pictures discography, especially Nudist Colony of the Dead, Deathrow Gameshow, Polish Vampire in Burbank - 25 Anniversary DVD (Pirro's first claim to underground fame), and of course, the upcoming The God Complex. Anybody who actually casts Conrad Brooks (still my pick for the best of the world's worst filmmakers) in his films is more than OK in my book.
Reviewing this film is going to be a challenge, as some of the terms in the film are likely to draw censor-happy eyes. But here goes. Larry Smallbut (Michael Palazzolo) is your typical American male. He cares about his live-in girlfriend, but that doesn't stop him from "working late" each night - and by "working late," I of course mean hitting the bars and strip joints with his best bud Richard Cheese (Kent Butler) and picking up loose women for meaningless sex. Then comes a night when fate rises up to bite him in the rear end - actually, it's his date Paula (Cynthia Brownell) that bites him in the rear end - just before Larry discovers that she has parts that no woman has any business having underneath her nether garments. But it gets worse. Just as he starts freaking out about this most sickening of discoveries, a torch-bearing quartet of weirdoes arrive on the scene to tell him that Paula is something much more disturbing than a transvestite - she, er he, is a Dickanthrope or, if you will, a Queerwolf. Since these men in black are following the monster in order to kill it, Larry keeps the whole bite business to himself. Even when a gypsy woman identifies him as a Queerwolf by the pansy-gram on his palm and he begins having disturbing nightmares involving hillbillies, he refuses to believe any of it. Until, that is, he changes during the night of the next full moon and wakes up the next morning in a sauna full of naked men smiling at him.
Finally convinced of his fate, Larry has few options. He doesn't want to die, especially since the only way to kill a Queerwolf is to drive a silver sex toy up his wazoo, but he certainly doesn't want to live with this limp-handed curse, either - especially since there seems to be a full moon every single night in his world. Can the power of John Wayne save him? Is there a Fagxorcist in the house? Or is Larry doomed to walk the moonlit nights in women's clothes and to spend his days walking funny until he's put out of his misery by the Queerwolf hunters?
Needless to say, Curse of the Queerwolf is as hilarious as it is politically incorrect. Some feel that every viewer will feel insulted at some point, but I disagree, mainly because the film doesn't pretend to be anything more than what it is, an extremely low-budget, utterly inane horror comedy. The plot itself is funny enough, but the real comedy lies in the details of the dialogue and characters. For instance, two of the Queerwolf hunters carry their lit torches at all times, no matter what they are doing, and Larry's friend Richard proves to be even funnier than he is annoying. Even the bad movie clichés somehow work every time. How could I not give as hilariously bad a film as Curse of the Queerwolf five stars? This is everything a low-budget, cheesy bad horror comedy should be - and so much more. My fellow bad movie lovers, take my advice and never pass up a chance to see this hilarious film for yourselves."
