OK, so how many werewolf movies can there be? There's really nothing new here. Man gets bitten, grows fangs and fur whenever there's a full moon - especially since the full moon happens night after night after night. In this case, the lycanthrope is Ted (Michael Pare), who moves in with his sister Janet (Mariel Hemingway), and mysteriously goes jogging every night. Moreover, there's several totally predictable scenes throughout the movie.
Truth be told, "Bad Moon" isn't really harming anything. Werewolf movies are always a good way to pass time, although "Wolf" elaborated on the idea. It's just that this is nothing that we haven't seen so many times before. And if I recall, this came out right after I saw "An American Werewolf in London" on TV (you may remember that it used Creedence Clearwater Revival's song "Bad Moon Rising"). But this doesn't reach the standards set by that movie or by "Wolf".
