"Aloha, Wolfman"!
31 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This May 31,2008 marks the 30th anniversary of the premiere of Deathmoon.

I remember when this movie first aired on TV, I liked it then and I still like it to this day. An average horror movie not gory but remember it was a made-for-TV-movie.

An over worked businessman(Robert Foxworth "Falcon Crest") on the advise of his doctor, goes to Hawaii on a vacation to rest and relax...right! He doesn't realize he is cursed and even in Hawaii when the full moon rises "he who is cursed will transform himself from an ordinary man into a vicious beast".

This may have been one of the last werewolf movies which showed the wolf to look like a "wolf-man". Having a wolf head and paws wearing clothes and walking upright,as later on in movies like "The Howling","An American Werewolf in London", and "Silver Bullet" to name a few,showed the wolf to look more like a "werewolf", with the long nose,pointy ears,tail,and walking on all fours and looking so beastly, it would have made little red riding hood's wolf tuck tail and run. That is until years later when Jack Nicholson howled at the moon in "Wolf". This movie also stars Joe Penny,who went on to star in series like "Riptide" and "Jake and the Fatman".

The music was eerie and the movie was great. For fans like me of those 70's made-for-TV horror movies, this is a must.
