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.

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.
