    IMO this is list is almost perfect. you've missed the original Wolfman however. I would also consider Underworld to be a werewolf flick.

    The Company of Wolves is by far my favorite werewolf film.

    I can't believe I haven't seen my favourite werewolf movie of all time (not called An American Wereolf In London that is). Has anyone else here seen Legend Of The Werewolf with Peter Cushing ?. Great little horror film from 1975 directed by Freddie Francis. I saw it when I was only 9 so nostalgia may be hindering my unbiased opinion but it has to be one of the more entertaining werewolf movies ever made.


    LUCIO!!!!

    "Wolfen" gets a bad rap, but is not a bad film at all.

    I'd have to say for nostalgic reasons Silver Bullet and American Werewolf In London are my two favorite werewolf movies. I have to say though, as far as werewolf films made in the last ten years or so, Ginger Snaps springs to mind instantly. A very overlooked werewolf film that put an interesting twist on the genre, paid homage to the genre in several scenes, and for me anyway, just truly works on every level. I remember renting the crappy American release from Blockbuster and falling in love with the film, despite the fact that the dvd itself left a LOT to be desired. When I found out there was a Canadian special edition I bought it immediately. Matter of fact, that was the first import dvd I ever bought!

    Oh yeah, I'll second what MrVess said. Wolfen is pretty cool imo.

    Easily one of my favourite genres in horror.

    1. An American Werewolf In London
    2. Silver Bullet
    3. Ginger Snaps 1 & 2
    4. The Wolf Man
    5. Dog Soldiers
    6. Blood Moon (seriously see this one if you haven't already!!)
    7. Wolfen (Not really a werewolf movie but it's always lumped in with them)
    8. Ginger Snaps 3
    9. The Curse Of The Werewolf
    10. In The Company Of Wolves

    Others that I've loved/liked: The Beast Must Die, The Werewolf & The Yeti, Werewolf Of London, Werewolf Hunter - The Legend of Romasanta, She Wolf Of London, and of course the best talking werewolf movie of all time: Big Bad Wolf!!!

    and there's so many more I have to see!!!

    It's probably due to a ton of nostalgia, but I watch it every year at Halloween and love it every time.

    I'm with you 100% on this. Every one I know either doesn't care for it or hates it but I can't stop enjoying it. Busey AND Haim. Never better.

    Favorite remains a toss up between The Wolf Man and Werewolf of London. Later films added better FX but not better stories. Company of Wolves is extraordinary though - and a sheer joy on DVD. Wolfen is good despite looking like Network or something.

    Newer films, like the entire Ginger Snaps series, have been pretty good. Personally I admire the GS films because they actually got better as each one went on.

    Can't believe Underworld didn't make the lists. Thanks for the heads up on the book fattyjoe37. I'll be buying it.

    Not my favorite by any means but I must say I enjoyed 'Moon of the Wolf' with Geoffrey Lewis and Bradford Dillman.
    Obscure but fun b-movie.
