The film was the first movie to use a thermographic visual photographic look to represent the point-of-view of a character, in this case, the wolfen. The type of effect shot has been used in a number of movies to show the POV of a character, usually villainous, like a beast. One notable example of the popularizing of this kind of visual effects perspective is its use in the "Predator" film franchise. See more »
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 »
This movie really wants to let out the wolf in me. Superwolves, werewolves, Indian spirits, being on forbidden grounds. That's why I enjoyed this movie. These creatures make the scum of New York look like decent citizens. Edward James Olmos playing a Indian, who does the nude dance at night, and seeing all the visions through the eyes of the wolf! The cast composed of Albert Finney and Gregory Hines really made the movie good. Especially when it's set in my home state, New York. If you like "Wolfen" you'll love "Wolf" with Jack Nicholson. Wolfen 10! Wolf 10!
