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.

Cheap, but okay entertainment.
5 July 2003 | by (A alien colony on the moon.) – See all my reviews

This is a cheap film, no doubt there, but the film is fun, entertaining and captivating to fill 90 minutes. Don't expect any thing great here, but at least be entertained by the films cheapness.
