A small town is terrorized by a series of brutal killings and the only ones who can possibly solve the crimes are a young boy in a wheelchair and his snippy older sister. Adapted for the screen by Stephen King from his novel Cycle of the Werewolf, this has all the cheesy goodness you could hope for in an '80s horror flick. Why would a werewolf use a baseball bat to murder his victims? It shall forever remain one of the unknowable mysteries of Stephen King.
Shockingly enough the handi-capable Corey Haim bends Stephen King plot standards and doesn't have eerie psychic powers. Instead he has a kick-ass motorized wheelchair built by his boozy uncle.
The special effects are surprisingly good. The way they created a snarling, out of control beast with such realism...no wait, that's just Garey Busey as the uncle.
