LOBOS DE ARGA/Game of Werewolves/Attack of the Werewolves (2011) Directed by Juan Martinez Moreno,

I honestly didn't have high expectations for this Spanish horror comedy and only bought it as it was just 1p on Amazon. Surprise, surprise! it turns out to be a real winner. A not too successful author returns to his ancestral home in Galacia looking for inspiration and finds more than he bargained for - especially as the local yokels seem very pleased to see him!  The director handles both the comedy and the horror with aplomb. Not a masterpiece but a film which knows exactly what it is doing and delivers by the bucket load.
