Bubba The Redneck Werewolf DVD Review

You won’t be howling with laughter when you watch “Bubba The Redneck Werewolf.”

Bubba is a sad sack balding Floridian who doesn’t have much going on in his life. He works at the pound, he pines after a woman (Bobbie Jo), he drinks a lot, and he’s a rather wimpy guy. Wanting to be different, Bubba decides to sell his soul to the devil in exchange for strength, more hair, and some appliances. The devil tricks him and makes Bubba a werewolf, but he doesn’t care. People actually like him more as a werewolf. Unfortunately, other people the Devil has been tricking around town are not so happy with their deals and want Bubba to help them out. Can Bubba face off against the Devil and be victorious or is he doomed?

Based on Mitch Hyman’s comic book series of the same name, “Bubba The Redneck Werewolf” is a low-rent indie film that offers little in the ways of entertainment. The script (written by Stephen Biro) doesn’t do much with the character or the story as it relies heavily on milking the one joke premise. On top of that, viewers have to suffer through lame pop culture jokes, toilet humor, bad acting, and eye-rolling jokes about country bumpkins. Sure, there’s some gore and decent practical f/x for the horror lovers out there, but that’s not enough to warrant a viewing. If you do happen to watch it though, it is at the very least a short movie.

There is one positive thing that came out of this dopey movie and that is the scene stealing Devil character played by ‘Bubba’ comic creator Mitch Hyman. Not only is it impressive that this is his first acting role, but it’s also impressive that he manages to make it his own.

Video/Audio:

Presentation: Widescreen. How does it look? It looks like a cheap indie film. With that said, the transfer is adequate.

Audio Track: Unspecified. How does it sound? The audio is surprisingly not bad. It’s rather lively at times.

Extras:
* “Bubba The Redneck Werewolf” trailer.
* 5 deleted scenes.
* A 2 ½ minute blooper reel.
* The 16 minute “Making Of Documentary” contains interviews, behind-the-scenes footage, film clips, and discussions about the comic book series, how the film came about, and more. More entertaining than the film itself.
* The music video for “The Ballad of Bubba”
* “Makeup Processes”- A look at the makeup process for the titular character.
