The theatrical trailer contains scenes/dialogue not present in the movie: When Van der Veer jumps out and startles his wife, the trailer shows a clip of their bodyguard reaching for his gun which is not present in the film; when Executive Security is reviewing the video of Becky Neff, someone says "team her up with Wilson". In the film, the head of security says "I want her."; the trailer includes a scene where Dewey and Becky, en route to the South Bronx, are talking in his car about the mysterious nature of the killings. This scene is not in the film; an overhead shot of the moon and clouds in "Wolfen-vision" that is present in the trailer is not in the film; in the scene where the Wolfen lures Becky up to the second floor of the abandoned church, there is a voice-over from Dewey (although it is NOT Albert Finney's voice) where he tells her that something was trying to lure her upstairs and separate them.

Moments before the first murder, the killers stalk their victim (using the "night vision" effect) and pass behind a parked car, revealing the reflection of a bright sunny day in the rear hood of the car when it is supposedly taking place at night. See more »
Wolfen(1981) Satisfying, surreal horror flick about unknown super wolves that are terrorizing the streets of New York City. Albert Finney,(in desperate need of a haircut) is the troubled, alcoholic police captain who has been assigned to find out why people are showing up dead at an alarming rate. The best part of this movie is the ingenious cinematography work by Gerry Fisher and the movie is directed by Michael Wadleigh( Woodstock). Finney is good, as usual, and Gregory Hines, in his film debut shines as a hip coroner working with Finney to solve the murders.The leads, the story line, plus a good supporting cast including Diane Venora and Tom Noonan helps make 'Wolfen' a pretty interesting film.
