Shape shifting. We do it for kicks. Turn yourself into a different animal. One night a deer, next night a salmon...
Or a wolf?
[Eddie unhooks Dewey's safety line]
Or an eagle.
[Dewey looks down, a long way... ]
C'mon Dewey, just flap your arms and jump, its easy. It's all in the head.
That would be murder. You wouldn't kill anyone else, would you?
That's what they pay you to find out...

Now, the premise of this story is pretty far fetched, but it's horror story after all. Expecting some wolf-man story, you are surprised at what the predator really is. And, the fact that they are providing some societal benefit by clearing the street of the homeless is really getting out there.
They would have gone unnoticed had they not killed some high mucky muck and his wife. Albert Finney brilliantly plays Dewey, a detective dragged out of a semi-retirement to solve these hot murders. He is teamed with a delightful Diane Venora (The Jackal, True Crime) to do what no one else can.
Gregory Hines ably assists in the hunt with his lab expertise and consummate acting skills. It is a mystery that makes no sense until Edward James Olmos, as a Native American, gives the supernatural explanation.
Forget all that and concentrate on the great performances, especially Finney's.
