Eye-popping special effects highlight an updated werewolf story. TV newswoman, Karen White, goes on a retreat after a traumatic incident with a serial killer. But is she really safe? And what should she fear more: regaining her memory or the creepy residents of "The Colony"? Followed by many unsatisfying and unconnected sequels. Helped launch shortlived werewolf craze in early eighties.

Joe Dante's first feature (the maker of Gremlins 1/2, Small Soldiers, etc) utilised the transformation effects seen in Werewolf in London a year later, although less primitive. Although not the best Werewolf movie out, this is still a decent attempt (bar the inherant 80s cheesiness. Its also a bit darker than Dante's later outtings)
