Default Greatest Werewolf Films?

With the latest installment of The Howling series out in a few weeks, here's a thread to celebrate all those great Werewolf films we've come to love, or hate as the case may be.

So, what's your fav Werewolf movie of all time?

What's your worst?

Got any obscure werewolf films that you feel should be shared?

Let us know your thoughts and recommendations here!


The Howling: Reborn is out on the 9th April from Anchor Bay Entertainment. Pre-order the DVD or the Blu-Ray here!

Ginger Snaps and its first sequel are probably the best, with Wolfen snapping very close at their paws...

Worst, a dead heat between Silver Bullet and The Werewolf And The Yeti...though Underworld and Van Helsing are both truly awful too.

Obscure recommendations? Er...Werewolves On Wheels...Werewolf Of Washington...John Brahm's The Undying Monster...actually none of those are especially obscure...sorry!

You don't like Van Helsing? I luv that film! It's a lot of fun, mind you I haven't seen it since I was about 14 or so

What's Werewolf Of Washington like Goj?

Are you a fan of the old Universal Wolfman films?

I haven't seen Werewolf of Washington for years, but I remember it being clever and witty: lycanthropic transformation as metaphor for political corruption tickles me and I'm a sucker for anything with Dean Stockwell though!

I do like the Universal flicks, but think they have held up least well to aging of all the Universal monsters. I rewatched The Wolfman recently and was almost disappointed by it. It was pretty clunky and badly acted compared to the stylish flair of the Drac and Frank films.

I HATED Van Helsing! I can't stand slick, Hollywood kiddie "horror" like that! Haha. Also, Hugh Jackman is just awful!

"Wolfen"
"The Howling"
The first two "Ginger Snaps" for me. I preferred the second one to the original, there is something really perverse about it.

So many great films, guys.

I see you thought the Wolf Man remake was pretty good Mark?

Just came across this awesome video - a montage of werewolf films - do you know them all?

I didn't rate it. It was technically impressive, but really boring and Anthony Hopkins was embarrassingly bad, as usual. It's a rare film he cannot ruin with his over-acting, scenery-chewing selfishness.

Each to their own Mark. I'm pretty 50/50 on The Wolf Man. It had so many great things in it, but for me it didn't gel together that well. With all the problems that Universal had making it, it's clear to see how this affected the film. Mind you, I did enjoy it when I saw it
