    Stephen King's Silver Bullet

    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…

    Ginger Snaps

    Ginger Snaps (2000) is a good werewolf movie featuring two gothic sisters who are always taking dead pictures. One sister gets attacked by a werewolf and starts her transformation stages. This werewolf movie is well recommended. Another movie that takes on the premise of young girls entering puberty and the changes that follow. Following in the footsteps of Carrie. I thought the sisters played a great emotional tie in as they were always together and only one will survive an encounter with the other. I thought that Katharine Isabelle (American Mary) played a great werewolf, and her scenes were well…

    Werewolf of London

    Werewolf of London (1935) is an American drama-fantasy horror cult film that was the first Hollywood mainstream werewolf movie. Director Stuart Walker (The Eagle and the Hawk (1933), Mystery of Edwin Drood (1935), Great Expectations (1934)) did an extraordinary job executing this terrific movie without the technologies we have today. The mystery was real and intense as the film progresses, so did my tension. Werewolf of London should be on every werewolf lover watch list because it is original and fantastic. Dr. Wilfred Glendon (Henry Hull - Lifeboat (1944), Boys Town (1938), Werewolf of London (1935), High Sierra (1941)) is…

    Dog Soldiers

    Dog Soldiers has a lot of other movies it shares things in common with. It has a little of "Predator" in it. It also has a little "Dead Alive" and "Night of the Living Dead" in it as well. It has other movies too, but this one is a very good werewolf movie. This one revolves around a troop sent into the woods for training exercises. They uncover another team that appears to have been ripped to shreds. The good news is that these people who were killed left behind lots of weapons, and seeing how the other troop only…

    An American Werewolf in London

    Remember back in the early 1980s when special-effects makeup artists were tripping over themselves to create the next big effect? The Howling boasted a fantastic werewolf transformation scene courtesy of makeup wizard Rob Bottin. Then along came Bottin's mentor, Rick Baker, with his own spectacular effects in this popular horror comedy directed by John Landis. An American Werewolf in London is more of a makeup showcase than a truly satisfying movie, but the film is effectively moody when David Naughton discovers that a wolf attack has turned him into a bloodthirsty lycanthrope. Jenny Agutter plays his love interest (watch out,…
