Silver Bullet


The small town of Tarker’s Mills was a place that was very peaceful, where nothing extraordinary ever happened until one night when murders began. The townspeople believe it’s some maniacal killer on the loose whom they intend to hunt down. Marty, a young handicapped boy, believes the killer is no man at all, but a werewolf. After a run-in with the werewolf, Marty and his sister Jane hunt all over town for the man who is the werewolf.

Really, the only thing to dislike about this movie is.. the werewolf itself. I mean, it looks like a muppet had a bad day. Even the director wasn’t pleased with it. In fact, the costume itself wasn’t even completed until well into shooting.. so they pretty much had to go with it..

Gary Busey was perfect as the weird uncle.. perhaps a little too good as he kinda gave us a glimpse into what he would tragically become after this stroke.

Overall, a good movie that I could recommend for a family Halloween fright night.
