Goofs

At about the 47 minute mark, the werewolf bursts out of the darkness at center screen to attack the Hippy Chick in the phone booth. Unfortunately, the actor, as he mounts the stairs from the left seconds before to get into position, breaks out of the light shadow enough to distract from the 'boo' effect. See more »

Not Quite as Bad as the Bush Administration
7 February 2007 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This thing is all tongue in cheek. And in some ways it's a bit charming. The president and all his people are a bunch of clueless idiots. If it weren't for six years ago, I would have said this was impossible. Of course, it was 1973 and the country was reeling from Watergate. There was racial tension and distrust. Now we have Dean Stockwell whose career has been dotted with psychos and weirdos. He finds himself at the end of the werewolf chain, having been bitten in Hungary. He serves as press secretary with the mild inconvenience of turning into a werewolf when the moon is full. He kills a little, bowls a little, terrorizes people in telephone booths. He suspects what has happened to him but, of course. no one will buy it. To the bitter end, the President of the United States is insincere and manipulative (and stupid). The film is pretty predictable, but its comic moments are the best. Don't expect to take this seriously. Maybe a scholar will look at it and see it as pure satire. Unfortunately, it's not that good.
