Grad student Eric Cord's roommate and best friend Ted gives Eric a gun with silver bullets and confesses that he is a werewolf, bitten while he was working on a boat owned by Captain Janos Skorzeney. A pentagram appears on his palm a few hours before he changes. The only way to end the curse is to kill the original werewolf in this bloodline. Eric ties Ted up but he changes, breaks free and bites Eric, who is forced to shoot him. Charged with murder, Eric jumps bail and begins searching for the werewolf who bit Ted, who turns out to be Skorzeney. Eric is pursued by "Alamo Joe" Rogan, a bounty hunter who saw Eric change and now uses silver bullets. Written by Anonymous

Werewolf (1987) is a great classic!
17 December 2002 | by Movie NuttballSee all my reviews

This werewolf film is one the best ever!Of course it was a TV film but it delivers the bite! The cast is very good with great acting!The late great Chuck Connors puts on a fantastic performance!John J. York was pretty good and Lance LeGault's intro of the film was dynamic and the words he said!I was really surprised by Raphael Sbarge as his performance was very good!Michelle Johnson not only acted good but she looked great!She is one of the finest looking actresses in MY opinion.She is very beautiful!Look for a very young Linden Ashby in the parking lot.Speaking of the scene with the parking lot that scene is one of the creepiest I have ever seen!If you see this film on TV,on the web or by some lucky chance at some store or yard/garage sale on a recorded tape If you love werewolf movies then pick this up immediately at this movie is one of the best and is one of My favorite werewolf films! Its truly a classic!


In the beginning of the film there is a dance club and the song that is playing is by Mike and The Mechanics and called Silent Running (Can you hear Me). This scene is excellent which shows (in My opinion) what a great era the 80s was. It is My favorite decade and this movie is a great 80s film!
