A team of archaeologists with unplaceable accents unearth a skeleton at a dig in an Arizona quarry. The Native Americans on the dig instantly recognize it as the remains of a werewolf, so the team leaders immediately take it to their lab and stare at it. Natalie, one of the team members, thinks it's absolutely fascinating, but Yuri siezes on greater ambitions when one of the dig assistants, who injured themself on the remains, becomes infected and turns into a werewolf in full view of hospital personnel. Yuri then conducts an experiment infecting other people in town to see if they turn into werewolves as well. When Paul arrives at the lab to assist in analyzing the remains, Yuri infects him, too. After Paul's transformation (under a week-long full moon), Natalie tries to save him.

Michelle Williams is almost too real. The movie often has the feel of a documentary. Powerful, but oppressively disturbing.

Peter P (gb) wrote: I used to think this was an awesome movie, when I was eleven. Watching it now it is really bad, yet I still like the concept, gymnast turned martial artist, but the movie itself is awful with insanely bad acting, a plot that makes hardly any sense and laughable action, but the eleven year old in still liked it.
James C (ag) wrote: This film is beautifully constructed in nearly every way. Competitive behavior has rarely been so intelligently dissected in film. It often seems like a documentary and has some dreamlike images. Almost makes me wish I could go back to the late '70s. The simplicity and directness of the presentation is very appealing and the performances are very natural.

This film used to scare the crap out of my Brother & I but after watching 30 years later seems a bit nonsense. The plot is pretty bad, the acting terrible & it's basically a man in a furry suit but there's still a bit of terror there from my childhood especially the bit with the Police Chief in the camper van.
Jacob G (us) wrote: As great as Segal is with his character, it is Karen Black who steals the show. Her portrayal of Parm feels oddly contemporary--were this a current film we'd be drawing comparisons to Natalie Portman (particularly Garden State-era) and Zooey Deschanel. The love story between her and J (Segal) is alluring to the romantically-inclined viewers. But J's heroin addiction has him in constant danger. And his addiction has him going back for more. For as much delightfully humorous moments make up this movie, there isn't really any romanticization of the drug lifestyle. Perhaps one of the more scarily accurate portrayals of junkie life I've seen. Even when things are looking up and escape is so close you can taste it, the siren call of one more hit resounds...
