Eight Werewolves NYTimes.com Would Like to Bring to Your Attention

A. Quinton — Feb. 7th 2010

NYTimes.com has posted a just-snarky-enough-for-the-Internet breakdown of eight canonical movie werewolves (well, seven plus that bland New Moon guy). The author (Dave Itzkoff) watched the films with enough attention to detail to produce some wry comments, but I think the best one of the lot comes early.

[1941’s Wolf Man] Talbot meets his end at the wrong end of a silver walking stick wielded by his father who, while disappointed in his son’s lifestyle, probably never intended to club him to death.


  • I’m a little upset the werewolf from Transylvania 6-5000 didn’t make the cut. That was a highly underrated movie role.

  • Wereblood

    That was awesome! More than enough laughs! Thank you!

  • Sweet! What’s wrong with that New Moon guy? :( He deserves some sort of credit.

  • Roi

    Interesting yet semi-comical reviews and a decent line up (except new moon of course… wtf are they thinking?! -.-)! Come Friday I’ll have see them all too! ;)
