Critics reviews

…This might be the best werewolf film ever made… Some of the film comes out of left field, and the ending is a bit abrupt, but those things can be easily excused. The real highlights are David’s transformation scenes and Jack’s prosthetics, both of which were so well done the Academy had to create a new awards category (Outstanding Achievement in Makeup) just for them.
