- An American Werewolf in London
I’ve mentioned this before, and I’ll mention it again. I bloody love this film. I saw it when I was a kid and I’ve seen it many times since. It might be my all time favourite. It’s a classic, pure and simple.
2. Ginger Snaps
Another one I’ve mentioned before, because it’s so bloody good. Katharine Isabelle is wonderful as Ginger, ably supported by Emily Perkins, who plays Ginger’s sister. It’s just great, and like any good werewolf movie, does well upon repeat viewings. Watch it!
3. Dog Soldiers
I can’t say anything about Dog Soldiers except… this was SO MUCH FUN!
4. The Company of Wolves
Seriously twisted, creepy and disturbing, this bizarre werewolf movie stars none other than
Jessica Fletcher international treasure Angela Lansbury. It is also responsible for my life-long belief that you shouldn’t trust a man whose eyebrows meet in the middle.
5. Teen Wolf
Michael J. Fox stars as a teenage, basket-balling werewolf who really wants to buy a keg of beer. Funny and daft as a brush, I loved this film when I was a kid, and I still liked it when I saw it recently. Also, childhood Michael J. Fox crush.
It is what it says it is – there’s a cop, who’s a wolf. Throw in some local occultists, a solar eclipse and a few gross transformation scenes and you’ve got yourself a movie. It starts really well, but kind of loses steam, but for a low budget effort it’s worth a watch.
7. The Howling
Another one I saw when I was quite young. I like the different take on the werewolf myth. Also, Dee Wallace.
