Directed by Joe Dante
When reporter Karen White has a traumatic experience being stalked by a killer, her therapist sends her to a resort to recover. Little does Karen know the secluded hotel is loaded with lycanthropes, and when her hubby is attacked, he starts heading into the woods for fun time with his furry friends. But his problems pale in comparison to her own – especially when she realizes her dead serial psycho is back – with very, very big teeth. Joe Dante’s 1981 horror hit remains one of the greatest werewolf movies ever made and one of the most popular fright flicks of the ‘80s.
In Joe Dante's 1981 horror classic, a reporter encounters werewolves while staying at a rural resort.
Cast: Dee Wallace, Patrick Macnee, Dennis Dugan, Christopher Stone, Belinda Balaski
Along with An American Werewolf In London, my favourite werewolf film ever made. So very smart and full of in-jokes for us horror nerds! Timeless classic.
decently good werewolf movie, just don't waste your time on any of the sequels. 1 skull for Jack Pierce make up nod in the finale. -1 skull for extremely floppy werewolf ears.
Probably the greatest werewolf movie ever!!
Marked a new style of special effects for werewolves. A true gem for sure!
Fantastic and suspenseful. Great ending
