Have first viewed in early 80's on HBO and continue to be a fan. Have seen Hines in person about 1992, he is great. This was a breakout role for him, and Finney plays a good role except for the accent. Kind of do not like the ending but love the beginning and most of the film. The effects are great and though the Howling came out about the same time this one has a storyline beyond the special effects noted in the 80's as being judged by their gore factor rather than realism. Best part of the script would be Finney's comments attributed to being a cop like "Maybe they just didn't recognize him" speaking of the Wolf really being Olmo's character. Loved the setting and the possibility that such a bizarre set of circumstances could allow wild animals to co-habitat in the slums of an aging city. While I am an old movie buff, I hesitate to recommend especially with all the trash coming out of Hollywood with assembly-line starlets. I like this one for the story and Finney, Olmos and Hines' lines. thanks for the opportunity to comment.
