User Score: 74/100

Synopsis:

A werewolf terrorizes a small city where lives Marty Coslaw, - a paralytic boy - his uncle and his sister - the narrator of the story.

Marty is an 11-year-old cripple who lives in a town where strange killings have been going on. Maybe it’s a monster? Soon, Marty confronts this monster while setting off fireworks on the bridge and he finds out it’s a werewolf. Now, he and his sister are searching for the man with only one eye (Marty had shot a firework into one of it’s eyes) to figure out who the werewolf is.

Silver Bullet (1985) was a very good Stephen King film and I enjoyed it quite a bit. The actors were alright. Some were good and believable and some were pitiful and laughable. The boy that played Marty, however, was quite good and you felt for him later in the film when the man that is the werewolf is going after him. The special effects were quite good for it’s time. The gore looked realistic for a movie like this and the creature effects were great. The werewolf didn’t look like some guy with 5 O’clock shadow. It actually looked like a werewolf, unlike in alot of other werewolf films I have seen recently. The screenplay was written wonderfully by Stephen King and I must say this is one of his best. Most of his things these days are just formula, but this was different from alot of his stuff. Overall, this is a pretty good little werewolf flick and I do recommend this.
