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
Producer Dino De Laurentiis was very unhappy with the werewolf used in the film. He was disappointed in both the way it looked and the way the costumed actor moved. This proved to be a bit of an insult to the actor wearing the suit as he was an accomplished modern dancer and was hired specifically for his movement skills. See more »
When Jane goes into Reverend Lowe's garage, among the large pile of empty soda containers are some Diet Coke cans. Diet Coke did not exist in 1976 (the year in which the movie is set). See more »
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.
