At about the 47 minute mark, the werewolf bursts out of the darkness at center screen to attack the Hippy Chick in the phone booth. Unfortunately, the actor, as he mounts the stairs from the left seconds before to get into position, breaks out of the light shadow enough to distract from the 'boo' effect. See more »
Absolutely, positively the worst thing ever put to celluloid. Although I'm a huge fan of "Le Bad Cinema," I couldn't force myself to sit through it from beginning to end. All of the scenes appear to be rehearsal walk-thrus with the cameras rolling. The dialogue is awful, the cinematography is so dark you can barely see what's going on and there is absolutely no continuity whatsoever. Overall, it is totally lacking in any sort of production values of any sort. The management team of this flick probably went to the Ed Wood School of Film and were academically dismissed. The plot is basically simple: The White House Press Secretary briefs the press by day, then eats them by night.
To give you an example of how bad this thing is, I was watching Dean Stockwell (in the title role) talking on the phone and turning into a werewolf at the same time. I fell asleep during this scene. When I woke up, Stockwell was still on the phone turning into a werewolf.
Anyone watching this film from start to finish has something wrong with them and you should be terribly afraid of them.
