Silver Bullet (1985)

I’m not a big werewolf movie fan, but was told this was a classic based on as Stephen King book so I gave it at shot. Corey Haim is not my favorite Corey, but he holds his own against (pre rehab) Gary Busey who plays his uncle. Haim plays a crippled kid who drives around in a suped up wheelchair his uncle built. He discovers a werewolf in the town and with the help of his uncle and sister (Megan Follows from Anne of Green Gables) discovers the werewolf’s human identity, destroys him and saves the day. Really liked this. Good acting, great suspense, and decent special effects. Also stars Everett McGill, the creepy guy from The People Under the Stairs and Twin Peaks.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.
