Movie Review: ‘Blood and Chocolate’ frightfully dull and tasteless

Painfully dull teenage werewolf flick features precious little blood or chocolate.

It´s Underworld without the vampires, or the conflict, as adolescent she-wolf Agnes Bruckner falls in love with human Hugh Dancy.

Of course, this causes a rife within her community of werewolf expatriates (werepatriates?) living in Romania, as she has been chosen as the next wife of were-king Oliver Martinez.

Competently filmed, with some nice shots of Bucharest; otherwise, while rarely overtly awful, the experience is numbing – far worse than watching any truly ‘bad´ movie could be.

Glitchy editing is used to cover up lack of an FX budget to laughable effect.
