Storyline

Richie Bridgestone (whose parents are divorced) goes to spend the weekend with his father at his secluded mountain cabin. During a moonlight hike, they are attacked in the darkness by a creature that he recognizes as a werewolf. During the struggle, the werewolf falls into a ravine and is impaled by a wooden fence, but not before biting his father. Upon investigation, they find their attacker to be human and the sheriff concludes their attacker was an insane drifter. He spends the rest of the film trying to convince his mother, and his therapist that his father is now a werewolf. Written by John Cropper <psyber@mindspring.com>

So bad it becomes good again.
14 October 1999 | by Jason-177See all my reviews

So bad it becomes good again. The acting in this one is horrible,the transformations are horrible,the make up is horrible.Actually everything is horrible.But it still is fun to watch, especially if you enjoy older horror flicks.Watch it when it airs on tv,it's not worth renting or even buying it.I'm not sure whether the producers of this flick were trying to mock werewolf movies or they were trying to make a serious movie.It looks more like a comedy then anything else.
