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.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

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.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

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.)

AND FINALLY....

- FAN BASED (If you aren't a big fan of Steven King or Werewolf movies, then this isn't for you.)
