Stephen King’s Silver Bullet (1985)

Based on the Stephen King book Cycle of the Werewolf and I am actually going to do something I have never done before. I am going to agree with and even link a review from over 30 years ago by Roger Ebert. Now for those that don’t want to read his review, he starts out by saying this is either the worst movie made from a Stephen King story or the funniest. Now please note he wrote that in 1985 when the movie first came out and a lot has changed since then but the spirit of his review is true. This movie is either intentionally funny or it is horribly made and truthfully I think they made it funny on purpose.

The movie itself is typical King fanfare. A small American town faces some sort of danger and is terrorized by it until a small group comes along and discovers the truth, this time it is a werewolf. You can honestly probably guess who the werewolf is 15 minutes into the movie, who the hero will be and all the other stuff. It is a very 1980’s movie after all, and I don’t mean that as a complaint. Truthfully I think if you like his other books or movies you will enjoy this, same goes for horror movies in general. It is far from a great movie, but it is, in fact, an enjoyable one. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
