Grad student Eric Cord's roommate and best friend Ted gives Eric a gun with silver bullets and confesses that he is a werewolf, bitten while he was working on a boat owned by Captain Janos Skorzeney. A pentagram appears on his palm a few hours before he changes. The only way to end the curse is to kill the original werewolf in this bloodline. Eric ties Ted up but he changes, breaks free and bites Eric, who is forced to shoot him. Charged with murder, Eric jumps bail and begins searching for the werewolf who bit Ted, who turns out to be Skorzeney. Eric is pursued by "Alamo Joe" Rogan, a bounty hunter who saw Eric change and now uses silver bullets. Written by Anonymous

One of the best Werewolf movies ever made!!!
24 January 2006 | by cool_cool_1See all my reviews

Werewolf (1987) is very entertaining on every level, the actors do a fine job as do the special effects team, the werewolves look fantastic in this one.

Eric Cord is told by his best friend Ted that he is a werewolf and that he is responsible for the murders that are happening, Ted wants Eric to kill him so the pain and killing can stop!! of course Eric doesn't believe his friend but realises that he's telling the truth when he turns into the beast right infront of him, Eric has no choice but to shoot his friend dead with silver Bullets.

But trouble lies ahead for Eric as he realises that he has now become a werewolf himself and thats not his only troubles, there's a highly skilled bounty hunter tracking him down.

Eric's only chance to lift the curse is to find the original Werewolf, the werewolf that had bitten his friend Ted, he needs to kill him before it's too late!!! Werewolf is a superb film, with a good story, fine performances and lots of action too, this movie gets a well deserved 8/10.
