Storyline

A platoon of American soldiers is forced to hide out in a dilapidated police station during WWII, but they soon discover something more sinister than war has been unleashed inside the building: a werewolf. Clark has a passion for found objects. One day, he finds something particularly odd: a finger. He takes it home and it grows- first another finger, then an arm, then a whole creature. Clark names him Bob, and they get along great... until Bob starts murdering.

Trivia

The names of the American soldiers reference many of the names of werewolves on film. "Talby" is a nod to "Lawrence Talbot," played by Lon Chaney Jr. In the original Universal film The Wolf Man (1941). "Quist" is a reference to Robert Picardos character, "Eddie Quist," in The Howling (1981). "Rivers" is an homage to Michael Landon's role as "Tony Rivers," in I Was a Teenage Werewolf (1957). "Doc" refers to the character "Doc," played by Stephen Rea, in Werewolf: The Beast Among Us (2012), which itself was released by Universal as a continuation/ shared universe to the failed The Wolfman (2010) remake.

Goofs

US armed forces were not integrated until 1948, so there wouldn't have been a black soldier among them, let alone a black officer. See more »

Werewolf movie fans have been fingered!
8 October 2019 | by ms_owlSee all my reviews

Don't get me wrong, I've been a true horror fan all my life, especially the werewolf movies. The problem is my inflated expectations.

Bad wolf down looks like a Halloween fancy dress party with great Jeffrey Combs stopping by. The suits? The make up? Have you seen "Wolf cop"? The make up and directing are similar here. Directed by Nicotero himself, The Finger is way more inventive, intriguing and even dramatic. The plot is unusual and DJ Qualls is a perfect choice for the lead in this one.

It's evident the authors' intent is to make some episodes cheesy and nostalgic, but in the wrong hands (Bad wolf down) it will look more like the late 90's-00's amateurish direct-to-dvd stuff, than the good old anthologies we love.
