Audience Reviews for Moon of the Wolf

I found it interesting and it felt very believable, the accents and settings felt real. It's not scary or tense, but by the time you get to the werewolf transformation it get's very B movie and corny. It was fun enough for a TV movie.

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.
