Thropen, who is a werewolf, invites Leslie to have lunch with him and Jennifer and Stacey believe they are lovers. Later Harry uses his power to bring Leslie to his apartment where he bite her toe. Leslie turns into a werewolf bringing havoc to her home, while Jennifer and Stacey try to revert the process.
"My Mom's a Werewolf" is an entertaining B-movie, with a silly but funny storyline. The direction, the screenplay, the dialogues, the performances are typical for a low-budget film. But there are many funny moments that will probably make you laugh. Therefore, a reasonable film to be watched at home in a rainy Saturday afternoon. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "Minha Mãe é um Lobisomem" ("My Mom is a Werewolf")
