Better than its reputation.
Silver Bullet is directed by Daniel Attias and adapted for the screen by Stephen King from his own novelette “Cycle Of The Werewolf”. It stars Gary Busey, Corey Haim, Megan Follows, Everett McGill & Terry O’Quinn. The film is set in the small rural town of Tarker’s Mills, Maine, which falls prey to a series of grizzly murders. At first the killings are believed to be the work of a mad man, with the town ready to take up vigilante arms against the perpetrator, but young wheelchair bound Marty (Haim) is convinced something more lupine like is responsible.
As most folks know, Stephen King’s adaptations to screen are a mixed bunch. Some have been tackled by top line directors such as Kubrick, De Palma, Cronenberg, Reiner & Darabont, while others have been turned out by no marks where the quality befits the low production value. Silver Bullet falls somewhere in the middle on the quality list of King adapted movies. Its reputation is somewhat Luke warm, and whilst it’s a little understandable when put up against other 1980’s film’s in the werewolf pantheon (An American Werewolf In London, The Howling & The Company Of Wolves), it does have a high entertainment value. Of note, too, is that it’s not shy in the dark department either. There’s mutilated children, a pregnant woman tore to shreds, car attack on our crippled hero, while some of the characterisations are also interesting – such as an alcoholic uncle (a wonderfully OTT Busey) & the mean hick bar dwellers who raise the spectre of vigilantism.
True, the film is also dotted with cheese, but there’s fun in that too. I don’t know if some of the laughs were intentional or not, but I like to think so. How else can you react to a werewolf that takes up a baseball bat to fell one of his attackers? That’s surely meant to be funny, no? It is also not taxing of the brain to work out who the hairy beast is in human form, because, like, the makers gives us the clues. I really don’t think they were trying to spring a big surprise on us. Cast wise it’s the usual array of mixed performers. Haim is likable, particularly in the scenes with the afore mentioned Busey, O’Quinn adds professionalism, while McGill is always value for money when playing important members of the community. Tis fun too seeing future “Reservoir Dog” leader Lawrence Tierney putting his gruff stamp over the bar room proceedings.
So not one for the technical and artistry seeking purists then, but definitely one for those looking for a good bit of werewolf tear em’ up that comes with a tasty slice of 1980s cheese. 7/10
What makes this movie a winner to me is that the Boogeyman can be anyone; and usually is the person we want to trust in the most outside of a Supreme Higher power than ourselves; this movie is great because, it shares a great bond and obligation between siblings and family, with family support, open-mindedness, and will; brings back that old saying; If there’s a will there’s a way. Well thought out from the beginning to the end. Love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Good rendition about King’s notorious novella , being stunningly narrated , well performed and professionally directed
This is a superior Stephen King terror , including the classic horror elements of intrigue , along with gore and grisly killing at the claws of a werewolf . It started in May in a small town Tarker’s Mills , it was a place that was very peaceful , where nothing extraordinary ever happened until one night when murders began and every month after that whenever the moon is full , there a railroad worker (James Gammon) meets his gruesome demise at the attacks of a werewolf . As a werewolf terrorizes a small city where lives Marty Coslaw, (Corey Haim) – a paralytic boy , parents (Robin Groves , Leon Russom) his uncle (Gary Busey) and his sister (Megan Fellows) – the narrator of the tale . Our folks take a long time to figure out cues upon werewolf .
This werewolf movie contains chills , thrills, action , suspense and results to be pretty entertaining . From the opening scene to ending terror and intrigue is continued . ¨Silver bullet¨ has everything , ever spooky scene you’ve ever seen , every horror movie cliché that’s ever been overspoken , adding the novelty about a wheel-cheer bounded protagonist . Enjoyable and sympathetic relationship between two brothers nicely played by Corey Haim , as a young handicapped boy, and Megan Fellows as attractive girl as well as the narrator of the story . Special mention to Uncle Red gloriously performed by that underrated actor called Gary Busey as a grumpy but likable person . According director Daniel Attias, Gary Busey ad libbed a great deal, for instance when Uncle Red is in the gun shop , as Attias checked with Stephen King, who said OK for these ad libs to be included . Exciting and eerie final confrontation between our heroes and the hairy werewolf .
This film was rightly based on King’s ¨The cycle of werewolf¨ . Stephen King movies adaptations are converting as prolific as his novelettes , from ¨Creepshow¨ along with ¨Cats’s eye¨, ¨Silver bullet¨, ¨Maximum overdrive¨ unique directed by King and various TV take on as ¨Rose red¨ , ¨The storm of the century¨ , ¨The stand¨ , ¨Golden years¨ and ¨Langoliers¨ have been numerous his adaptations . The motion picture was well financed by Italian producer Dino De Laurentiis , but he was very unhappy with the werewolf used in the film . The film was compellingly directed by Daniel Attias , though Don Coscarelli was scheduled to direct but left over creative differences with Dino De Laurentiis. Filming lasted in October 1984 and finished slightly before Christmas of the same year . This was Daniel Attias’s first and only feature film he directed For the rest of the 1980s to today he mostly directed TV episodes for some famous shows (such as Ray Donovan , The Americans , Crossbones , The Killing , Resurrection , True Blood) and hasn’t made another theatrical film. Rating : 6,5/10 . Well worth watching for terror cinema fans and Stephen King buffs . It’s an edge-of-your seat winner .
Entertaining Werewolf Movie
In the spring of 1976, in the former peaceful town Tarker’s Mills, the inhabitants are scared with violent murders and press Sheriff Joe Haller (Terry O’Quinn) to investigate further and find the responsible. Meanwhile, the crippled boy Marty (Corey Haim) is very happy with the new motorized wheelchair that his dear Uncle Red (Gary Busey) gave to him. During the night, Marty sneaks out to use the fireworks Red gave to him in a bridge. However he is attacked by a haired creature but Marty shots a rocket in the left eye of the attacker and escapes. Marty tells his sister Jane (Megan Follows) that he was attacked by a werewolf and convinces her to seek out who in town could have an injured eye. Jane discovers that the local Reverend Lowe (Everett McGill) is the creature but now the siblings have to convince Uncle Red to help them to disclose the truth about the reverend.
In the 80’s, “Silver Bullet” was a successful werewolf film on VHS in the rentals. I might have watched this entertaining movie at least twice in those years. Today I have just seen it again and I really liked it, specially the chance to see Corey Haim two years before “Lost Boys” and Terry O’Quinn decades before “Lost”. But maybe the most important is the excellent transformation of the werewolf without the use of computers. My vote is seven.
