Savini's werewolf opus
17 March 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

FAMILY REUNION is one of the last episodes of the TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE TV series, and it's also one that happens to be directed by make-up maestro Tom Savini. It's also rather fun, a typical spin on the werewolf genre with neat low budget effects and the expected twist in the tale.

A generally good cast has been assembled for this one, including B-movie favourites Stephen McHattie and Patricia Tallman. Being a fan of the horror genre, Savini throws in various nods to it, including having the kid reading from a copy of Fangoria. What transpires in the episode is unfortunately very familiar indeed, but at least this is recognisably horror - unlike some of the dodgier episodes in the series.
