- The sex disrupting original tent attack in Napal
- Watching WEREWOLF OF LONDON on T.V
- Heartbreakingly BENJI-like “dog being taken to the pound” scene
- After the protective family pooch Thor is thrown in the kennel, Pare opens his fly and takes a territorial piss on his doghouse. If the movie had more scenes this darkly clever it could have won best in show!
Holy Cats…uh, er, I mean dogs! I gotta’ get my hot little hands on THOR right fucking now! And I guess I should watch BAD MOON….naw, I’ll just read THOR. Thanks for the heads up, Uncle L!
How doe you not talk about Silver Bullet in that one!? The bridge scene with the fireworks is brilliant!
Umlaut, I’m sorry. ever since I saw this scene from MAC AND ME I tend to block out any movie whose main character is confined to a wheelchair! I need to revisit SILVER BULLET!
Silver Bullet is my favorite werewolf movie, American Werewolf in london is my 2nd, then its Bad Moon, the werewolf in Bad Moon just looks so rad.
SILVER BULLET has Gary Busey…Don’t get much scarier than that!
Actually every year or so I watch SILVER BULLET and weep at how promising life looked for Corey Haim at that point in his life (I do the same thing with Corey feldman and STAND BY ME!)
Wow, I had no idea there was so much affection for SILVER BULLET. For some reason it never really clicked with me though I remember the nightmare scene in the church where everybody turned into werewolves kind of vividly. For me, nothing ever comes close to the two films I mentioned, AMERICAN WEREWOLF and THE HOWLING. (Maybe I’m 1981 biased!!!!)
How about we do this, Umlaut, Irving and Mamasweet (and anyone else who wants to) write a paragraph about why you love SILVER BULLET and send it to Kindertrauma@gmail.com by next Thursday, I will get Aunt John to watch the movie this week and write up a review with a fresh eye. We’ll post them all together next week…
Convince me that I am wrong. You know me, I love just about everything and am especially partial to STEPHEN KING and werewolves so I just don’t get why I never clicked with this movie. Are you guys up for it? Maybe you can get me to see it in a new light!
I have a special place in my heart for Bad Moon. I actually prefer it to Silver Bullet. Silver Bullet is definitely a winner in my book – but something about that movie lacks…Maybe it’s because I’m such a fan of the original book/Graphic novel by Stephen King illustrated by Bernie Wright. I think it’s the werewolf makeup that threw me as odd. In retrospect I’ve seen ALOT worse werewolf makeup.
Speaking of which I just watched Wild Country. Good werewolf movie with Scottish teens. Horrible werewolfÂ effects. Movie was almost too dark to see what was going on at night. The plot was fun though.
Back to Bad Moon – this was one of my video store favorites back in Junior High. Thought it was so terrifying that the uncle was jeopardizing his family’s safety by chaining himself up at night close to the house. I thought the dynamic with the dog was amazing. Thor truly was a character in the movie. The werewolf makeup although a little dated was pretty darn scary in the early 90’s.
Did anyone notice the tent scene was ripped off in Dog Soldiers? Which was scarier? Hard call.
