Check out Film School Rejects posts, 31 Days Of Horror. Today's entry, the 1985 movie, Silver Bullet, based on the short King book, Cycle of the Werewolf. The article is HERE.
Kevin Carr's review gives the movie high marks. I'm glad, since I think it's a greatly overlooked story.
Get this quote from a section titled, "Killer Scene" :
Forget the gore and the violence. A really strong scene in a horror movie is best achieved with a level of suspense. While this movie carried and R rating and had some levels of blood and creature effects in it, one of the best scenes features Marty in his wheelchair on a bridge in the middle of the night setting off fireworks. He is surprised by the werewolf, which has been stalking him. While it plays relatively short, it’s an effective moment in the film, and it allows Marty to display an uncommon level of cogent thinking (which is pretty rare for a horror movie) in order to escape. It’s also one of the most effective uses of a bottle rocket you’ll ever see in cinema history.The entire article is great!
