Bad Moon (1996)

Director: Eric Red

Stars:  Mariel Hemingway, Michael Paré, Mason Gamble                        

Ted, Michael Pare, is working out of the country and while camping with his crew, they are attacked by a werewolf. Ted is having sex with his girlfriend in one of the tents when the attack happens, good scene.  He is attacked by the werewolf, but he lives while all of the rest is killed.  Ted comes back to the States to see his sister Janet, played by Mariel Hemingway, and her son.  They have a dog named Thor whom suspects that there is something wrong with Uncle Ted.

The transformation scenes in the movie were not computer generated which normally make the special effects look cleaner, but not in this case.  The werewolf looks more like a puppet than a wolf.  The movie is based on the book Thor, about the dog.  It is unusually that a dog saves the day and not a person.

I love werewolf movies and so I like this movie.  It did not do well at all at the box office, but who cares.  I remember the movie coming out, but then all of a sudden it was coming out on video.  I think it was released in the cinema and video in the same year, which didn't really happen that quickly in those days.

It was a really cool werewolf movie. If you like werewolf movies, then I think you will really enjoy this movie. Enjoy.
