Goofs

The night-time stalking scenes obviously were shot during daylight, like when the teenager leaves the party at night and walks in the forest. This is often done in film and television - it's a technique known as "Day-for-night". However, it is often done better in some films than in others. When it's obvious that the "night" scene was filmed in the daytime, you KNOW it was not one of the better "day-for-night" efforts. See more »

Made for the Drive in!

An ok movie with Michael Landon as a rage filled kid who a doctor turns into werewolf with psychiatry, unleashing his inner wolf. While the makeup is corny, this is a fairly fun movie that's a different take on werewolves. Better to see this than the worthless An American Werewolf in Paris!
