documentary

review by
Mike Haberfelner

The Rougarou is a popular monster of Cajun folklore, and even if its name is clearly a deviation of the French word for werewolf, loup-garou, it has as much to do with the European tradition as with Native American mythology, which includes many shapeshifters, even cannibalistic tendencies. Based on these influences it isn't very surprising thatdescriptions of the Rougarou vary wildly: While there's of course the wolf on two legs most similar to the werewolf, other manifestations include a headless man or a male or female hitchhiker in white.

 

All that said, this documentary doesn't so much take the academic approach to things but relies more on oral history, letting bayou locals tell about their encounters with the Rougarou in all its different manifestations. And in all this, as is pretty much always the case with Seth Breedlove's documentaries, it doesn't set out to prove or disprove the existence of a real life Rougarou, merely paing a picture and at the same time add to the legend. And Breedlove does this (again) in a very cinematic way, with many clearly but expertly staged scenes and an emphasis on atmosphere rather than just relying on talking heads, making this one at the same time informative and entertaining documentary with definite sparkles of horror.
