In this likeable, if lightweight, comedy, a teenager who longs to be a little less ordinary discovers a family curse that kicks in when the Moon is full.
Beneath the facial fur, this is just another film about growing pains, although it does feature cinema’s only werewolf slam-dunk sports sequence.
As the unfortunate teenager, the ever-engaging Michael J Fox is doing what he does best – turning a loser into a winner.
Teen Wolf was filmed during late 1984 during a break on Family Ties production.
It cost less than $1 million to produce and was filmed in a matter of weeks.
