5 Stars! “landmark horror-comedy…a canny updating of Universal’s 1940s monster movies…special effects guru Rick Baker concocts excruciatingly realistic visuals…most impressive movie magic” (Slant)
5 Stars! “one of the all-time great horror movies, a pitch-perfect mix of belly laughs and genuine scares” (eFilmCritic)
“not only the pinnacle for the werewolf subgenre, but also a generational touchstone for the countless horror-comedies that followed…it’s still the best horror reimagining ever made…It’s succinct, visceral, and unforgettable. That kind of fearlessness in building a story and completing it with little concern for sequels, world-building, or audience sensitivities is why the movie has such a vicious bite even today.” (Den Of Geek)
