Little Richie Bridgestone (whose parents are divorced) goes to spend the weekend with his father at his secluded mountain cabin, and witnesses his father being attacked by 'a creature' that the boy recognizes as a werewolf. He spends the rest of the film trying to convince his mother, and his therapist that his father is now a werewolf. Written by

I am a werewolf buff, and this film is one that I consider one of the best and most underrated of them all. The werewolf is scary in appearance and in action. The make-up artist creates a really wolfie character who is truly frightening. His actions show no human feelings whatsoever; he is 100% wolf. The young boy is supremely vulnerable, and he doesn't seem to know it. I saw this film more than thirty years ago, and I still remember it, and I still would love to see it again. It has stayed with me all these years. It's like going to a yard sale, and an expert sees a rare treasure that everyone else has missed. He buys it for a dollar, yet it's priceless. That's what this film is to me, a werewolf expert. This werewolf is priceless. Find it, see it, rent it, buy it, and tell me it's not a unique film. I am looking for it now. Moviehunter.com is worth a try if I can't find it on Amazon. If you love werewolf movies, find this one.
