Cute & Campy
17 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

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.
