Grad student Eric Cord's roommate and best friend Ted gives Eric a gun with silver bullets and confesses that he is a werewolf, bitten while he was working on a boat owned by Captain Janos Skorzeney. A pentagram appears on his palm a few hours before he changes. The only way to end the curse is to kill the original werewolf in this bloodline. Eric ties Ted up but he changes, breaks free and bites Eric, who is forced to shoot him. Charged with murder, Eric jumps bail and begins searching for the werewolf who bit Ted, who turns out to be Skorzeney. Eric is pursued by "Alamo Joe" Rogan, a bounty hunter who saw Eric change and now uses silver bullets. Written by Anonymous

Werewolf Pilot Movie
16 May 2005 | by werewolf_fang1See all my reviews

I first saw this when it aired back in 91 on sky one in the UK. I was hooked on it immediately. The pilot movie was released on video here in the UK on a Tri Star label. Since then this has almost been forgotten except by its loyal fans who still remember it. Those who may have seen the pilot may still to this day not even realize that it is a TV Show.

The Pilot was the best in the series and was directed by the late David Hemmings. He would also go on to direct future episodes along with James Darren. I recommend this movie to any werewolf fan its about time this underrated classic clawed its way to DVD!

Another GR8 bonus for the show was Chuck Connors who really had an eerie presence as Yanos Skorzeny ( you may recognize the name from the TV Show The Nightstalker) who was the head of the werewolf bloodline who Eric would have to kill to end his curse...
