When done right though, Werewolf movies have an unbridled ferocity about them, and they make us identify with the plight of those doomed to change into bloodthirsty monsters by the light of the moon... or fear the ones who do so simply because they can.
- Some of the movies below feature Shape Changers of different kinds, not only Werewolves.
- There are also a few movies featured below, especially in the Honorable Mention section, that may not be full Werewolf movies, but they featured them so well that they had to be included on this list.Trick 'r Treat and the Underworld movies are good examples of that.
- All of the movies in the Top Six section are Must Own/See for any true fan of Lycanthropy.
If you're in the mood for a truly quality Werewolf flick, any of the movies in our Top Six will do you right. For our money, An American Werewolf in London and The Howling are probably the best of them, but then again they all bring their own unique and terrifying vision to the Werewolf Sub-Genre, so just enjoy them all!
*Most of the links go to Amazon so that you can stream or grab yourself a copy of the movies; our review of the movie (when applicable); or in the case of some of the older & more obscure titles, IMDB, because they simply aren't available to stream or purchase.
