Also Known As:
Cycle of the Werewolf (USA) (working title)
Stephen King's Silver Bullet (USA) (complete title)
A serial killer is stalking a small town, but only during the time of the full moon. Police is baffled and a small wheel
chair bound boy thinks he's discovered the truth, but no one believes him and the killer is after him now as well.
This is back when Steven King was writing interesting stuff before some of his newer crud which I won't get into. It's good
to see Gary Busey play a good guy. I also like the little bit of the mystery it is. It's a good story and a good movie,
I give it 9 STARS.
I agree, even though it did drag at points and I for a party of one would have liked to have seen more of the werewolf. I
don't cater to that old saying Hitchcock or whoever said it, "The monster you don't see is scarier." I disagree
with that. 8 STARS.
ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):
+ EFFECTS (The effects are cool.)
+ CAST (The cast does a great job.)
+ STORY (Great story.)
+ MYSTERY (Making it a little bit like a mystery.)
+ WEREWOLF EFFECTS (What you see of it is cool.)
ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):
- PACING ISSUES (It does slow down at points.)
- MORE (We both would have liked to seen more of the werewolf.)
- FAN BASED (If you aren't a big fan of Steven King or Werewolf movies, then this isn't for you.)
