    • 26 Metascore
    • 25 Rick Kogan
    A limp retelling of the werewolf legend that is about as frightening as a rubbery Richard Nixon mask.

    Though the film does contain a few minutes of patented Carpenter camera magic, it is unable to sustain either story or character. For all its flash and color, it is a dull film--an artless dig in the Spielberg garden. [02 July 1986, p.C3]

    • 25 Metascore
    • 63 Rick Kogan
    Teen Wolf is a clever and inventive film, a soft and contemporary retelling of the familiar werewolf tale.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 25 Rick Kogan
    A mess of a movie, a no chills nightmare about what happens to a group of rubes at a Carolina truck stop when the machines go nuts. [29 July 1986, p.3]
