    I find that most films in general are rather terrible. The older I get the truer that statement becomes (for me).

    No more so than killer dolls, "evil" children, monster sharks, etc.

    My favorites are Dog Soldiers, The Howling, and Wolfman (1941).

    Might be my least favorite sub genre ever. I can honestly say I only dig a couple of werewolf flicks.

    Ginger Snaps (Massive fan of Katharine Isabelle)
    The Howling
    American Werewolf in London
    Wolf Cop (yeah, I went there)

    I will say, I'm about 8 years overdue for a rewatch of Dog Soldiers. I don't remember much from it other than not hating it.
    And I think Thriller needs to be mentioned in any Werewolf discussion. One of the coolest transformations ever.

    Hell yeah!
    I almost forgot about that one.
    Still have my VHS with that superb Making of documentary.
    Need to rewatch that one this weekend :)

    Well, no, actually, you can't "honestly" say that because "a couple" literally means TWO and you listed FOUR. [​IMG]

    But man, looking back nine years at my original list:
    Wolfman Meets Frankenstein
    Dr. Jekyll Versus the Werewolf
    Night of the Werewolf
    In the Company of Wolves

    And I probably haven't seen those last three since then. Is Dr. Jekyll Versus the Werewolf really that good? Don't really remember it. I need to brush up on all the Naschy flicks. I'm going to finally watch A Werewolf in the Amazon. And then a bunch of Naschy's are coming out this year on Blu-ray so I can watch those all over again.

    It's not one of my favorite Hombre Lobo flicks, but, like the rest, it has its moments. Leave it to Naschy to write a scene where someone gets trapped in an elevator with Waldemar during a full moon. Classic. His Hyde scenes are great fun, too, mostly because they're in hilariously bad taste. Once you get through the sluggish first half, a lot of fun awaits.

    Which Naschy flicks are coming to hi-def? I'm officially excited.

    Yes it is. Very underrated. When I finally watched it, I couldn't believe how good it was.

    INQUISITION (Mondo Macabro)
    DEVIL INCARNATE (Mondo Macabro)
    MUMMY'S REVENGE (Code Red)
    FURY OF THE WOLFMAN (Code Red)
    ASSIGNMENT TERROR (Code Red)
    MARK OF THE WOLFMAN (rumored Code Red)

    And Mirek Lipinski has confirmed working on two additional unannounced titles.

    So that's at least seven confirmed and perhaps an eighth! Really looking forward to these.

    Bad Moon is one of the suckiest horror films ever made (my apologies to othervoice1). And that rare breed of awful that almost makes me feel like thing has a point.


    Agreed with your #1.

    Though, I think An American Werewolf in London, The Company of Wolves, and Ginger Snaps deserve placement a little higher than Wolf.

    Though, Wolf is definitely fun.


    My mind always tends to go a bit blank when I try to think of how many werewolf films there even are. But... please, try to remember how many subgenres of horror there are.

    Please try.

    No fans of Big Bad Wolf here? I know it's not a great movie, but damn it is a fun movie!
