I think they did a great job considering the budget and tech at the time. It was far more advanced than previous wolf movies...those basically just had a guy in a mask.
You're thinking of that other Musings thread.
I did too & then one year later Rick Baker won an Oscar for his transformation scene make up in an American werewolf in London.
1981 was the year for werewolf movies. The Howling, American Werewolf in London, and Wolfen. I suppose you could say Wolfen wasn't a true werewolf movie, but it was close enough.
I loved all those.I found the trailer for the howling.
I actually never watched, "Wolfen". I just read the plot on Wiki. Shapeshifters...interesting.
Yeah, Native American shapeshifters/environmental issues...it may be time to find these movies and re-watch, I remember Wolfen as being fairly creepy.
it was awesome
Cool...I'll give Wolfen a watch...thanks.
check out a movie called Bad Moon as well.
Yes, it was good. Albert Finney, Gregory hines, Edward James Olmos, Diane Venora (who played the tough Russian chick in the Jackal), and Tom Noonan....
As soon as I saw Tom Noonan in the cast, I was intrigued. He played the best film adaptation of Francis Dolarhyde of "Red Dragon" from Thomas Harris' book. The movie was "Manhunter" from 1986. He blew away Ralph Fiennes pathetic attempt. Also, William Peterson played Will Graham...and he totally out acted Ed Norton IMO. Funny, Hugh Dancy practiced at copying William Peterson's voice and character for the TV show. He sounds almost exactly like William Peterson.
This is an ad I got here on this thread
Couldn't agree more. I loved Manhunter, the more stylized/Miami Vice-ed version of Red Dragon. Brian Cox was a decent HL too. Yeah, Peterson was great, was good in To Live and Die in L.A. too.
live & Die in la is a classic
Man, I can feel the Synthwave kicking right now...
Haha. Some Tangerine Dream sounds good.
