Silver Bullet (1985) Review:

Silver Bullet is a werewolf film inspired by Steven King story Cycle of the Werewolf. Unfortunately, it is not one of King’s best adaptation.

With its typical cheesy look from the ’80s and its childish characters, the film seems to be addressed to a rather young audience. The story itself is ok, but this adaptation almost makes it look like a parody because of how the characters tend to be exaggerated. In all of that, the actors’ overplay does not help.

The main problem, however, was the slow pace of the movie and its very predictable aspect. Other than that, there is a good amount of action, and even a couple of gory-ish kills that will quench horror fans’ thirst for blood. The special effects are unfortunately not that great and the transformation scene, which is usually the highlight of any werewolf movie, is here really short and not convincing.

I think you understood it by now, but I didn’t really enjoy that movie. Don’t get me wrong, it is a decent werewolf film overall, just not one that stands the comparison with other similar films from the same period such as The Howling or An American Werewolf in London.
