6.66 FRUIT BRUTE
What? You're not old enough to remember when this short-lived Monster Cereal character made his appearance? Way better than Yummy Mummy. I mean, how many things can you eat with the word Brute in the name?
6. THE DOG SOLDIERS
It gets points for being an interesting idea and one of the few instances of a werewolf pack ever seen onscreen. It's rentable, but it's a must-see if you're a werewolf fan.
5. OLIVER REED in CURSE OF THE WEREWOLF
Based on Guy Endore's The Werewolf of Paris, this movie was made in Spain. Like they do. But, it had a young Oliver Reed in the title role, doing physical and bloody deeds in the manic Hammer fashion.
Way scarier than Universal's Wolf Man. but then again, I'm way scarier than Universal's Wolf Man.
4. GINGER from GINGER SNAPS
Also known as, half of the women I dated in my twenties.
One of the best indy horror films around, and a great examination of "That time of the Month" as literal curse. Recommended!
3. THE COMPANY OF WOLVES
It's werewolves for the art house crowd! Retold fairy tales, nestled in a larger tale, and some weirdly horrific special effects make this one of those movies that sticks in the back of your mind long after you've seen it.
2. EDDIE from THE HOWLING
Talk about scary! It was bad enough that he was all loup-garou and stuff, but his transformation
was the second-most horrific thing at the time.
transformation was the second-most horrific thing on film at the time.
1. DAVID in AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON
Here's the first. One of the great, all-time classic horror films from the guy who gave us Coming to America.
David (aka, The Dr. Pepper Guy) made turning werewolfy anything but cool. Then, as the werewolf, he was an actual, overgrown, weird tailless wolf, just like in folklore.
Here are both of the top two transformations side by side. So to speak.
