    If you had to pick em, well what would they be? As much as I love werewolves, I realize there really are not a lot of films that I actually like, but perhaps I just missed some.

    Here are my picks:

    The Wolf Man (1941)
    Werewolf Shadow
    The Howling
    An American Werewolf in London
    The Company of Wolves
    Silver Bullet

    It's kooky but I've always liked THE BEAST MUST DIE.

    I loved the TV Show WOLF LAKE, but sadly it didn't even last a full season. It was sort of like a combination of TWIN PEAKS and THE HOWLING.

    All good choices. I'll add Frankenstein Meets The Wolfman, Werewolf of Washington, An American Werewolf in Paris and Cursed.

    I like Hammer’s The Curse of the Werewolf. The story of how he actually becomes a werewolf is original and pretty weird.

    One of my all time faves of any genre is the original Wolf Man with Lon Chaney Jr - I also love Ginger Snaps and is personally my 2nd favorite werewolf movie. My 3rd favorite is Wolf man vs Frankenstein and then probably the Howling. I was not a big fan of an american werewolf in london for some reason- I was pleasantly surprised by Bad Moon - not as good as the ones mentioned above but still quite enjoyable- Dog Soldiers I could appreciate but another movie for some reason I just couldnt get into

    I saw Dog Soldiers and didn't like it. It seem like a corny made for TV movie. Bad Moon had one cool looking werewolf, but that's about it. I never seen Ginger Snaps! I heard nothing but good things about it, I don't know what the hell I am waiting for.

    I was also a big fan of the Werewolf TV show, and I am still waiting for it to get release on DVD, but know it may never happen.

    I can't believe Wolf with Jack Nicholson didn't make anyones list. Anyway Id go with

    An American Werewolf in London
    The Howling
    Ginger Snaps
    Wolf
    Ginger Snaps 2
    Silver Bullet
    Dog Soldiers
    The Company of Wolves
    Ginger Snaps 3


    Ginger Snaps 3 is on the bottom because something about 'mystic journey Indian' shit always pisses me off, but the premise seemed cool...they should have just left out that Indian prophecy bullshit.

    I've never been a fan of Curse of the Werewolf. It took too long to set up and the action scenes themselves are kinda flat. The Hammer magic just isn't there for me.

    Paul Naschy's debut Frankenstein's Bloody Terror is really good, but more because of its vampires. Assignment Terror is good as well with an all out brawl of Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy and The Wolf Man.

    And yes I can't believe I forgot Ginger Snaps. Excellent movie. I still need to see its sequels.

    Anyone else ever see Full Moon High? I loved that one when I was a kid. Heard it was some sort of tax shelter movie and probably won't make DVD.
