Ti West on

Teen Wolf

Released 1985
Distributor Atlantic Releasing Corp.

1985’s Teen Wolf flips the similarly themed I Was a Teenage Werewolf on its head. Instead of the heavy breathing psychodrama of Michael Landon’s tortured teen, we’re treated to a family-friendly comedy where Michael Fox’s lycanthropic curse is used as a metaphor for self-empowerment. Director Rod Daniel’s film was a modest success leading to a sequel, a cartoon show and a live-action series that debuted in 2011 and is still running.
