Product Details

Product Description


Corey Haim (back when he was still cute) and his souped-up hot-rod of a wheelchair are all that stand between a sleepy little New England town and a ferocious full-moon killer in Stephen King's adaptation of his novella Cycle of the Werewolf. This minor entry into the werewolf canon lacks the scares and sense of humor of superior hirsute thrillers The Howling and An American Werewolf in London, but pays off in some nice casting touches. Gary Busey is loyal to the end as Haim's beer-guzzling Uncle Red, Twin Peaks's Everett McGill cuts an unsettling figure as the town minister, and fleshy B-movie icon Lawrence Tierney (Reservoir Dogs) is the gruff bartender who breaks up bar fights with a baseball bat called "The Peacemaker." The monstrous wolf beast, a towering mountain of fangs and fur, is the creation of Carlo Rambaldi (E.T.). --Sean Axmaker

3.0 out of 5 stars It was the last full moon of the spring of 1976 Nov. 14 2013
By bernie TOP 50 REVIEWER
The movie starts out with hallmark type music and the voice over narration. It wasn't really the narration of the 1950s sci-fi movie but more of the narration of a hallmark sisterly love.

We finally get into the movie. You can tell that it's a Stephen King movie because of the excessive potty mouth presentations. This can be overlooked if they would hurry up and get into the biting parts and so they do. As far as the movies concerned this is the standard formula "anyone can be the biter until they turn up as the bitee and that we know they're not the biter but there are a fewer potential bitees left.

This movie does try to get down on the kids level. And it uses all the standard gimmicks such as the kids can tell that that's really a werewolf but the parents don't believe them. Then it becomes a little more tongue-in-cheek. They even toss in a little slapstick.

The question is will the culprit(s) getaway or face "the silver bullet?"

One of the advantages of being based on a Stephen King novella "Cycle of the Werewolf" is that Stephen King always keeps the spooky doings close to the realm of possibility. He also has a fascination with cars.

We began this movie with Hallmark type music and ending credits with elevator music "Joyride" by Rob B. Mathes (who ever he is)

4.0 out of 5 stars entertaining werewolf movie (3.5/5) Dec 23 2007
By falcon
i just watched Silver Bullet and i enjoyed it.it was entertaining and
well paced,though not particularly scary.the music was quite ominous
and suited the movie well.most of the characters were two dimensional
at best,but the actors did a good job with what they were given.i
didn't feel much emotional investment for any of the characters.the
creature effects were okay and we really only get a full view of the
creature in one scene.despite all this,i enjoyed the movie and would
watch it again,though not for awhile.the film was unique in one aspect,
which i won't give away, so you'll have to watch it to find out.it is
definitely worth renting,or buying if you can find it cheap.i paid ten
bucks for mine and got my moneys worth.in short,you could do a lot
worse. 3.5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars Best performance werewolf movie Oct. 11 2006
Most people complain (well some complain), about a boy (the rest with held if you have not seen this movie), taking on a werewolf. well I find that this movie is best for performance because:

1. The werewoolf is not CGI and for being costume, well I find it really scary. Convincing!

2. Two thumbs up for all the actors who put on great acting skills which really bring out the characters and their roles.

3. The story line is excellent and mysterious which I thing leaves it open for another Silver Bullet movie to be produced. Which is in production by the way. Check it out for yourself!

4. Famous qoute: Hardy boys meet ******** Werewolf!!!

Do yourself a favor. Find the nearest video store, rent or buy this one now!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining July 17 2004
While this movie has few of the bone chilling moments of "An American Werewolf in London" or "The Howling," it still has moments where it is fascinating and at least a couple of places where the tension rises. Helping along the way are Gary Busey as Marty Coslaw's (Corey Haim) Uncle Red, Megan Follows as Marty's sister Jane, and Everett McGill as creepy Reverend Lowe.
There are murders happening in and around town, and Marty is convinced it is the work of a werewolf, with whom he has a close encounter; a really close encounter. At first no one believes Marty, as you would expect, but then Jane is convinced. Finally Uncle Red is sort of convinced. The tension builds until the night that Jane and Marty's parents are away from home and Uncle Red stays with Marty, Jane, and a single silver bullet.
While there are other werewolf movies with a higher scare factor, this one remains one of my favorites. I will watch this movie sooner than many others just because it is familiar and the characters are generally likable. It is like a cartoon in many ways, but these same qualities make it an easy to watch movie. There are a few intense moments to spike up the movie, including the encounter between Marty and the werewolf on an isolated walking bridge at night in the country, another encounter between a group of citizens out to hunt the murderer, and encounters between the werewolf in his human form and Jane and Marty.
This movie is a must have for Stephen King fans as well as those who have a penchant for people who change into furry creatures.

4.0 out of 5 stars Super Scary June 25 2004
By A Customer
This movie was really scary. It got really bad reviews, and I don't understand why. True, there is a little bit of gore in it at the beginning, but so what. Really well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars By the light of the moon May 4 2004
Format:VHS Tape
A cycle of terror ...
Every month, when the moon is at its fullest, the usually quiet town of Tarker's Mills is visited by what the townspeople think is a homicidal maniac. Mutilated corpses begin to turn up and a curfew is administered upon the residents of Tarker's Mills. One crippled boy nevertheless decides to ignore the curfew - which led to the cancellation of the Fourth of July Fireworks - and meets the mysterious murderer face-to-face one night. So begins a quest to discover the true idenity of this monster.
Daniel Attias has produced one of the creepiest Stephen King films ever with 'Silver Bullet'. The screenplay (written by King) is an adaptation of his novella, 'Cycle of the Werewolf', about a lycanthrope who hunts down the townspeople of Tarker Mills. The film is well paced and has a 'whodunnit' feel, as well as plenty of extremely scary moments that will ensure you do not head for the 'eject' button, feeling you have wasted your hard earned dollars.
Moreover, there is a great cast here, headed by veteran actor Gary 'Point Break' Busey, Corey 'The Lost Boys' Haim, and Terry 'The Stepfather' O'Quinn.
I first watched this film when it came out for rental in the mid-eighties and it scared the bejezus out of me. So, take the nightmare ride of your life through the fog shrouded woods of Tarker's Mills, but beware the moon.
'Silver Bullet' also stars Everett McGill of 'Twin Peaks' and 'The People Under The Stairs', and Megan Follows, star of 'Anne of Green Gables'.
