Underworld: Rise of the Lycans (2009)
The prequel story traces the origins of the centuries-old blood feud between the aristocratic vampires and their onetime slaves, the Lycans. In the Dark Ages, a young Lycan named Lucian emerges as a powerful leader who rallies the werewolves to rise up against Viktor, the cruel vampire king who has enslaved them. Lucian is joined by his secret lover, Sonja, in his battle against the Vampire army and his struggle for Lycan freedom.
In accordance with the Navajos’ legend, a thirteen year-old boy will finish with the curse of the powerful Skinwalkers, a.k.a. werewolves. The half-breed boy Timothy is raised by his human mother Rachel and protected by his Skinwalkers relatives since he was born. His grandmother Nana, his uncle Jonas, his cousin Katherine, her boyfriend Adam and their friend Doak have kept the secret about his bloodline and neither Timothy nor Rachel know the tragic curse.
An American Werewolf in Paris (1997)
While it pales in comparison to the original — in part because the wonderfully constructed makeup effects are reduced to cheesy computer graphics — An American Werewolf in Paris maintains An American Werewolf in London’s sense of humor and actually provides a more in-depth storyline.
Blood and Chocolate (2007)
As much romantic drama as horror, Blood and Chocolate is unusually refined and mature for a film based on a teen novel. This was Twilight before Twilight and succeeds where that more popular vampire film falters: with strong writing, dreamy cinematography and likable, well-rounded characters.
Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed (2004)
The second film in the Ginger Snaps trilogy barely features sister Ginger, instead focusing on Brigitte, as she’s locked in a rehab facility for her addiction to wolfsbane, which is keeping her growing lycanthropy at bay. The film’s tone is kept light by Brigitte’s new oddball sidekick, fellow patient Ghost, who helps provide a powerful twist ending.
Underworld: Evolution (2006)
The continuation of the werewolves-versus-vampires epic Underworld features a less cohesive plot but maintains the original’s style and hectic action.
Wild Country (2005)
Poor lighting hinders an otherwise strong low-budget effort from Scotland with a simple yet effective plot about a group of teens camping in the Scottish Highlands who discover an abandoned baby and end up being pursued by werewolves. The unorthodox, bear-like creatures are designed by the same man responsible for the werewolves in Dog Soldiers.
Howling V: The Rebirth (1989)
By far the best of the Howling sequels (granted, that’s not high praise), Rebirth is atmospheric and plays like a classic murder mystery, with guests in an ancient Romanian castle trying to figure out which one of them is a murderous werewolf.
Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning (2004)
The third and final entry in the Ginger Snaps franchise steps out of the established storyline by transporting sisters Brigitte and Ginger back in time to 1815, where they take refuge in a frontier fort that’s being besieged by werewolves. The re-teaming of the sisters is a refreshing change of pace from Ginger Snaps 2, in which Ginger had only a small role.
A stylish and inventive mix of action and horror, Underworld is, unexpectedly, a Romeo and Juliet tale set amidst a war between werewolves and vampires, featuring great special effects (without thankfully not relying too much on CGI) and one of the most intimidating werewolf designs of all time.
An American Werewolf in London (1981) ##########
Director John Landis (Animal House, The Blues Brothers) brought his comedic roots to this tale of an American tourist who’s bitten by a werewolf and is then haunted by violent nightmares and ghosts urging him to kill himself to end the curse. Despite the humor, it’s the groundbreaking, grisly special effects of the transformation scenes that most identify this fan favorite.
Ginger Snaps (2000)
A darkly humorous streak colors this Canadian production (which spawned two sequels) that smartly parallels lycanthropy with puberty. Morbid teenaged sisters Ginger and Brigitte find themselves growing apart after Ginger is bitten by a werewolf and begins to undergo unusual “changes.”
Silver Bullet (1985)
One of the few Stephen King adaptations in which the script was actually written by King, Silver Bullet captures his rich, nostalgia-strewn portrait of small-town life and the paranoia, anguish and anger caused when a werewolf begins picking off residents right and left. At its heart, though, it’s a good old-fashioned murder mystery with just enough humor to lighten the mood.
Dog Soldiers (2002)
Neil Marshall’s directorial debut is a turbo-charged action bonanza that plays like Night of the Living Dead meets Aliens, with werewolves. A group of British soldiers on a training mission in the Scottish Highlands encounter a pack of werewolves and end up barricading themselves in a farmhouse, not realizing that it’s the wolves’ home. Tongue-in-cheek humor and imposing creature design make this one of the most entertaining monster movies of all time.
