Trivia

Alice Cooper had been an alcoholic for his entire adult life and, as he developed a cocaine habit in the late 1970s, his music career dwindled and his health was jeopardized. He finally made the decision to get sober in 1983 - the same year his record label dropped him, leaving him unsure of his professional future. When he was asked to star in this low-budget film, he perceived it as an opportunity to get back to work and signed on with the understanding that the movie would not be released outside of Spain.

Vince's eyeshadow changes from a bold bright blue to a duller shade and back again all throughout the final half of the film, sometimes within the same scene. See more »

Quotes

Marilou: Where was he when that monster dog crashed through the living room door? And when Jordan was eaten alive? And before that, in the bathroom? And now? Why don't the dogs attack us? Tell me the truth, Vince. Your neighbors were right, you are the monster dog! You are the murdering animal! Goddamn you! Damn you! You are a werewolf, I know you are! I know it!

Cooper + Werewolves + Italian director + 80's = Orgasmic
31 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

Gonna start with saying this: Yes, it IS sad that Alice Cooper's voice is dubbed over, BUT they chose a good voice and it actually fits pretty good.

I watched this movie yesterday and I was surprised, didn't expect it to be that good. Alice Cooper played the role good as hell, and the feel of the movie reminded me of movies I watched growing up. It's pretty easy to tell that it's an Italian director, but that's not bad, cause they can usually make a movie visual in a way that Americans can't.

The werewolf-look might not be the best around, but they did what they could with what they had. By showing it as little as possible, but still showing it, they made it seem like it looked cooler than it probably did.

I'm a huge werewolf fan, a 80's horror fan, Alice Cooper fan, gore fan, and a fan of a lot of other stuff in this film, and I wasn't let down. (Don't let the "gore fan" part trick you though, it's not a gory movie, but it has a couple of blood scenes) 7.5/10 (Giving it 8 on the vote above)
