Revealing mistakes: 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 »

Ripped from the headlines!, 12 March 2008
Author: lastliberal from United States

Looking at the title, I was expecting some story about a New York politician that was preying on young women in Washington. There was a prostitute that was attacked, but she appeared to be a $100 hooker, and not a $4300 one.

Dean Stockwell ("Quantum Leap", Married to the Mob) must have been in dire need of a paycheck to do this film where he is sent to Budapest after an affair with the President's daughter (Jane House). He manages to get bit by a werewolf and comes back as Press Secretary. he keeps trying to quit, but the President (Biff McGuire) is just about the most clueless man I have ever seen. He kept trying to channel Nixon as he would state, "Let me make this perfectly clear."

They even managed to stick another Nixon quote in at the end: "You won't have Jack Whittier to kick around anymore."

As for the werewolf action, it was bloodless. He mainly pushed people down. I won't even call this a horror film; it more of a comedy.

And, what was going on with this little person in the White House basement conducting some weird experiments (Oscar nominated Michael Dunn)? I never did figure what that was about.
