Trivia

Michael Landon later satirized his role in this film on his TV show, Highway to Heaven (1984). In the 1987 Halloween episode, "I Was A Middle Aged Werewolf," written and directed by Landon, the angel Jonathan Smith turns himself into a werewolf to scare off some bullies. Smith and his friend, Mark Gordon (Victor French) watch the movie I Was a Teenage Werewolf (1957) on TV. Watching the werewolf, Mark tells Jonathan, "You know, this guy in the movie reminds me a lot of you. I mean, when he's a regular guy, not when he's got fuzz all over his face." See more »

Enjoyable camp classic.
16 January 2006 | by (Brentwood, USA) – See all my reviews

Memorable drive-in horror of the 50's is a golden oldie of the genre.

When teenage boy starts having anger issues, he begins to see a doctor, who is slowly turning him into a werewolf!

As delightfully hokey as it sounds, I Was a Teenage Wolf is a camp horror film that's really carried by its young star. Young Michael Landon makes for a tragic and heart-felt character. The supporting cast is decent enough, although their performances are a bit uneven. The makeup FX are dated, but they manage to be pretty good considering the era.

Over all, this one is for the B fans.

*** out of ****
