Storyline

Worn down and out of luck, aging publisher Will Randall is at the end of his rope when a younger co-worker snatches both his job and wife out from under his nose. But after being bitten by a wolf, Will suddenly finds himself energized, more competitive than ever, and possessed with amazingly heightened senses. Meanwhile, the beautiful daughter of his shrewd boss begins to fall for him - without realizing that the man she's begun to love is gradually turning into the creature by which he was bitten.

Trivia

John Williams was originally attached to compose the music for this film. Soon left the project after the film was delayed, and needed some time off after winning the Oscar for Schindler's List (1993), as he'd been working on Jurassic Park (1993), Schindler's List (1993), and overseeing the Boston Pops Orchestra in Boston.

Goofs

Shortly after Will Randall told Laura Alden about what happened to him with the wolf two days before during the full moon, there is a view of the moon. But the moon is already only half full and, moreover, the moon is in the growing phase. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Vijay Alezias: The demon wolf is not evil, unless the man he has bitten is evil. And it feels good to be a wolf, doesn't it?
Will Randall: Indeed it does.

A Classy Werewolf Story
17 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

Here's a werewolf movie done with some style and some class. This may be the only werewolf-business world combination. It features effective villains played by James Spader and Christopher Plummer. I've always found Spader an easy guy to dislike, in any film.

Jack Nicholson is the lead guy, however, and is refreshingly low-key, especially for him. I don't believe he ever raised his voice in this movie, acting very subdued throughout.

There isn't as much action as you see in most modern-day horror movies but yet this is such an intense story that you don't lose interest. It's pretty good in the visual department, too, and it doesn't hurt to ogle Michelle Pfeiffer.

Even though the profanity is pretty low for a '90s film, when it's there it's needless. They could could have done this movie, believe it or not, without any and it still would have been good. I'm not complaining. I still recommend this, but not for people who are looking for an action--packed vampire film.
