Storyline

The frustrated housewife Leslie visits an animal shop to purchase a flea-collar. Unknowing that the owner is a werewolf, she accepts his invitation to lunch and later in his apartment. Through a bite in her toe he starts her slow transformation in a werewolf. Home again, she desperately tries to hide the often disgusting process from her family, but her daughter Jennifer and her - from horror magazines well educated - friend recognize what's going on, and help to kill the non-human.

Nothing to howl about
12 January 2003 | by (Long Island, NY) – See all my reviews

Not sure why I even gave this film a 2, as opposed to a 1, as it is wretched.

Maybe because it is merely bad and not offensive.

I cannot imagine a more uninvolving and stupid movie. But at least it captures the 80s at their worst.

I suppose that counts for something.
