Flick City 46: ‘Werewolves Within’ Interview With Director Josh Ruben


For this episode on Flick City, I interviewed Werewolves Within director Josh Ruben. It’s a horror-comedy that took me by surprise thanks to Mishna Wolff’s witty screenplay (the jokes are abundant) and an engaged ensemble (led by Sam Richardson and Milana Vayntrub). Check out the CinemAddicts podcast below for my talk with Ruben.

IFC Films will release the film June 25th, 2021 in select theaters and on demand.
