After surviving his own encounter with a canine one night, Ambrose comes to believe the assailants are much more than mere dogs...Written by
The transformation scene was intended to be done in one shot with a technologically new camera rig that would be programmed to shoot from multiple angles as if it were a single shot. However, an unforeseen problem was that, since no one had ever used one before, it took two full days to program the rig properly See more »
No knowledgeable revolver owner, especially a veteran, would snap the cylinder closed like Ambrose did (multiple times). Doing so can bend the crane, resulting in a misalignment of the cylinder and the barrel. See more »
This is a better than average character movie. The Wolves are scary and/but not CGI. My favourites are the old Universal Wolfman, the Howling, and American Werewolf in Paris I did not ever like American werewolf in London, except for the initial scenes I don't rate that at all! Silver Bullet was OK; better than I'd remembered and about as good as the book. The the main thing is the hero, who is unlikeable yet still a hero. I like the use of older actors; is this a 'Coccoon' for the Werewolf fans? It was a little difficult placing the main actor as a retiree at first, but I eventually accepted it. Overall a good addition to the Were-canon. I want to see more from everyone involved.
