The frustrated housewife Leslie visits an animal shop to purchase a flea-collar. Unknowing that the owner is a werewolf, she accepts his invitation to lunch and later in his apartment. Through a bite in her toe he starts her slow transformation in a werewolf. Home again, she desperately tries to hide the often disgusting process from her family, but her daughter Jennifer and her - from horror magazines well educated - friend recognize what's going on, and help to kill the non-human.Written by

It's a terrible film - but so cute. It's so bad it's good. It's worth watching if you like the campy comedy-horror.
My favorite comedies are the black comedies & comedy-horrors. I love the classic horror films so to mix horror with comedy is "right up my alley". This one works for me although it might not for others.
If you enjoyed films like The Werewolf of Washington (1973), Teen Wolf (1985) or Dracula: Dead and Loving It (1995) then you might like My Mom's a Werewolf (1989) because it's along the same vein.
Also, if you are wanting a family style horror film to watch with your kids (in particular for Halloween) then My Mom's a Werewolf (1989) is a good film for that.
