Grad student Eric Cord's roommate and best friend Ted gives Eric a gun with silver bullets and confesses that he is a werewolf, bitten while he was working on a boat owned by Captain Janos Skorzeney. A pentagram appears on his palm a few hours before he changes. The only way to end the curse is to kill the original werewolf in this bloodline. Eric ties Ted up but he changes, breaks free and bites Eric, who is forced to shoot him. Charged with murder, Eric jumps bail and begins searching for the werewolf who bit Ted, who turns out to be Skorzeney. Eric is pursued by "Alamo Joe" Rogan, a bounty hunter who saw Eric change and now uses silver bullets. Written by Anonymous

1980s Blast
1 January 2013 | by (Valencia, Spain) – See all my reviews

Werewolf is the kind of TV series that could only have come out of the 1980s. I was watching it again last night, and the music and attitudes are totally 1980s.

Lance LeGault plays the bounty hunter, and his character seems like it would have been a perfect fit for Chuck Connors. It has always puzzled me as to why Chuck Connors would have taken the role of a deranged sailor werewolf.

The acting by John J. York as the victim of his best friend's lycanthropy is choppy at best. Ralph Sbarge plays Ted, the room-mate of York. Ted discovers that women are being killed every month, and he thinks it is him. So he gives York a gigantic pistol so York can kill him when he turns again, at the full moon. That does not seem like a very smart plan. The plotting is not exactly brilliant.

Anyhow, one thing leads to another, and York is now the werewolf, and also a bail-jumping fugitive. Some have pointed out that the plot is exactly like The Fugitive or The Incredible Hulk TV series. The only difference is that The Fugitive had David Janssen and the Incredible Hulk had Bill Bixby, and both of them were much better actors than John York.

The pilot was a bit clunky, and I thought it dragged. The bottom line was to get the confrontation between York and Skorzeny (Connors) set up, and that really happened at the very end, and it was pretty flat. York arrives as a werewolf, so there is no verbal confrontation with Connors. It became a battle of two stunt men in wolf suits. Not much drama there.
