The small town of Tarker's Mills was a place that was very peaceful, where nothing extraordinary ever happened until one night when murders began. The townspeople believe it's some maniacal killer on the loose whom they intend to hunt down. Marty, a young handicapped boy, believes the killer is no man at all, but a werewolf. After a run-in with the werewolf, Marty and his sister Jane hunt all over town for the man who is the werewolf. Written by
Tarker's Mill, when the action takes place, is a fictional town within the Stephen King universe. It borders locations of other King's works also adapted to film, such as Chester's Mill (Under the Dome), Derry (It) and Castle Rock (Needful Things, Cujo and Pet Semetary), among others. See more »

The last full moon of that Spring came a little more than a month before school let out for Summer vacation. Our town's long nightmare began that night.

Though based on a Stephen King novel, this movie is just as good as the book. The characters in the movie was well played, the suspense was just right, and the results were touching. Corey Haim playing the wheel-chair bound brother was just amazing. Knowing he really loves his sister was easy for him, but his sister was really the one who need to grow up. His friend who put the snake in the tree, wasn't really a bad kid, he just needed to be taught a little lesson. Just not being torn to shreds by a lycanthrope(Werewolf). The three characters Red(Gary Busey), Jane(Megan Follows), and Marty(Haim) proved themselves to be the heroes, and the love bond had strengthened everyone, including the sister. Stephen King has received a lot of credit for making this movie, and I think it wasn't too bad at all.
