Terrible horror/comedy is saved by 1980s nostalgia value
4 June 2018 | by a_chinnSee all my reviews

Lothario werewolf John Saxon seduces housewife Susan Blakely and turns her into a sex crazed werewolf. I remember seeing this PG-rated comedy VHS box on the video store shelf, but never watched it and I had always thought it was a silly low budget family comedy. Instead, it's a rather dirty comedy that has Blakely getting turned on by just about every male character she encounters. But as raunchy as that sounds, the dirty comedy manages to stay fairly clean in that it doesn't show any nakedness, although the innuendo and Blakely frequently wearing nothing but lingerie makes this film hardly a comedy for the whole family. But how good is the film? It's badly acted (except for Blakely and Saxon), it's not very funny, and generally pretty boring. However, the film has a fair amount of 1980s nostalgia with plenty of cheesy hair, music, and fashion, and that was enough to hold my interest despite the overall poor quality of filmmaking. The film also features Ruth Buzzi as a gypsy fortune teller, Marilyn McCoo, Marcia Wallace (best know now as Miss Krabappel on "The Simpsons"), and Kimmy Robertson (best know from Twin Peaks) playing "pedestrian." There's even a cameo by Forrest J Ackerman!
