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.

I did too & then one year later Rick Baker won an Oscar for his transformation scene make up in an American werewolf in London.

Yea, that set the standard for a full body view of the creature, and it actually walking and attacking. AWL used a quadruped concept, which was unique at the time.

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 also enjoyed the humor Joe Dante added as well.

I found the trailer for it too.

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.

Dude Wolfen is awesome. I think you will really like it. Siskell & Ebert even liked it & they hate horror movies...lol

Another one that came out in that timeframe was Altered States...that was another freaky film.

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....

There is also a movie called Bad Moon which is also very good.

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.

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.

Truly.  Dang you guys, I'll be watching 80's movies and living in the past!  Haha!  Oh well, like I said, a great time for movies..everything was so slick, so stylish.  I just watched the Miami Vice two-part, The Prodigal Son a couple weeks ago.  Still love it thirty plus years later.

I really wanted that to be that the soundtrack of a film I watched in the late eighties but can't remember the title. TG was played all the way through. It isn't Wavelength, but I think it was si fi. I'll have your babies if you can conjour up a suggestion or three.
