Storyline

Richie Bridgestone (whose parents are divorced) goes to spend the weekend with his father at his secluded mountain cabin. During a moonlight hike, they are attacked in the darkness by a creature that he recognizes as a werewolf. During the struggle, the werewolf falls into a ravine and is impaled by a wooden fence, but not before biting his father. Upon investigation, they find their attacker to be human and the sheriff concludes their attacker was an insane drifter. He spends the rest of the film trying to convince his mother, and his therapist that his father is now a werewolf. Written by John Cropper <psyber@mindspring.com>

Hahaha yes! This movie is hilarious
30 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is soooooooo funny, it should be billed as a comedy. It's got some really great one-liners, namely between the sheriff and the "god is love cult" (i.e. cult leader dude: "there's something out there sheriff..." sheriff: "yeah i know... God"). This movie is so tame that I let my 8 year old son watch it. It was his first "horror movie". It was one of the lamest movies and the ending was pretty lame as well. That being said, it is entertaining enough to watch more than once, unlike some other campy horror movies I have unfortunately sat through. It is a great movie to watch if you're bored. Also, if you are the type of person that enjoys watching campy horror movies to make fun of and laugh at them, then this is a perfect one to do that. Enjoy!
