Audience Reviews for Moon of the Wolf

A yokel sheriff investigates mysterious killings on the bayou by talking, and talking, and talking some more to the sweaty locals. This action-free made-for-TV werewolf film is almost completely devoid of entertainment value.

It's an enjoyable made for TV project, but I've seen better werewolf movies.

I found this one in Mill Crrek 50 Drive-In Movie Classics Movie Pack. Do be scare to buy these Mill Creek 50 packs, as I have found the film quality to be good on most movies. A Good Film in 1972 that doesn't get more then 3 stars. A relatively routine werewolf tale. Made for TV, back in 1972 so expect no real blood or gore, A Midnite to 4 am TV filler on Saturday Night.Now know what happen to David Janssen after the The Fugitive, General Hospital's John Beradino stars as a Doctor in this small town. Only Hardcore Werewolf Fans will enjoy this.
