Product Description

Amazon.ca

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.

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

I saw this movie in the theater with my church youth group way back in my early teens. After the movie, while we were all loading back into the church van, our pastor walks up wearing an eye patch. Now that was classic! Out of this trip to the movies, I became hooked on all things Stephen King. Today, I own all his books in hard back and all the videos made from his works. I hope that lends some credibility to me when I make the statement "This is one of the best Stephen King films". Corey Haim is excellent as Marty (a wheel chair bound pre teen), Gary Busey is hilarious and steals the show as Uncle Red (who builds Marty a wheel chair that is faster than my car). Everett McGill plays the pastor and the turmoil of his character is evident and well protrayed. The special effect are very good considering the time period, with the ending sequence when the werewolf is killed still among the best of all werewolf movies. Not very scary, but a very good story and well acted. There are some scenes that give away who the werewolf really is and it doesn't take a keen eye pick up on these. This predictibility is the only major draw back to a pretty solid film. Very much worth picking up.

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)

This is one of steven kings best movies though still can not beat the greatness of stevens best and most enjoyable horror movies,the "STORM OF THE CENTURY" and the "LANGOLLIRS" or somthing like that,forgot how to spell it.Anyways this movie takes place in the suburbs??Its about a handy caped boy who is crippeld but lucky for him his cool uncle makes him a sweet motorized wheel chair with nitro like things attached to it that can reach speeds 40 to 50.Yeah,I know,sounds a little farfetched but anyways he names his drag-racin-wheel-chair the Silver Bullet if you notice the name of the movie.The boy then one night gos out late at night to light off some bottle rockets and stummbles onto the werwolf who then get a bottle rocket stuff in his eye ball,ow huh.He then hurrys to his uncle to tell him of his werwolf attack but of course his uncle does not believe him untill at the end he reallizes it for himself.I like this movie because of the good acting and the well thought out plot.Although the werwolf looks realy fake but the rest of the positive movie parts make up for it.Not the best horror movie but certanly one of steven kings best horror flicks.This is a must see for all steven king horror movie fans.Check it out,its pretty good.

Based on the very good novella, CYCLE OF THE WEREWOLF, Director Attias has done a fine job in bringing King's monster mash thriller to the screen. Even diehard fans admit King often has not translated well to the movie medium. Non-fans think...Writely so?...his books could use some judicious editing. Not so with SIVLER BULLET. From the jump, an ambience of brooding menace is created and sustained by the story's focus on "unbelieved" children discovering The Unbelievable. Gary Busey is great as Uncle Red: friend, mentor and ultimately protector of his neice and nephew (appealingly played by Megan Follows and Corey Haim) who unluckily discover the identity of the town's local member of THE WEREWOLF community. One of King's strong points has always been contrasting salt-of-the-earth New England settings with scary stuff reminiscent of Poe and Lovecraft. Everett McGill is good as the not-quite-tragically cursed Wolfster. When he cries, "It's not my fault!" to children he's about to chow down-on, a viewer's sympathy is taxed to the max when he recalls what The Beast's "Day Time Job" is. SIVLER BULLET is a winner because...unlike versions of "epics" like THE SHINING or SALEM's LOT...the story gets to its toothy-point quickly and stays there. This is really a classic Bogey-Man movie: the thing that wants to eat kids up. It's a Halloween treat that can be enjoyed anytime.
