Funnier than most comedies I've seen. Not only do the special effects hold up surprisingly well, but the film in general is delightfully directed. Thankfully, the movie doesn't tread murky thematical paths but unapologetically embraces the quirky fun (and bracing horror) of its premise. A must-see!
Hammy horror with a comic twist, and the standard raised by one of the best metamorphoses on screen (from human to werewolf) thanks to the Jim Henson production team. Character arc and narrative progression suffer under the gaze of the horror spectacle. Iconic but overrated.
A straight shooter for genre, story, and style. Good practical effects, including a great transformation sequence. Abrupt but apt ending. Could use some more of this in lieu of today's over-produced genre flicks.
