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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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
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)
