What are the best werewolf movies?

A
Johannes Gelilang - Binge.co Contributor

When it comes to cinematic monsters, werewolves are never off the table. And let's be honest, even though they became part of the pop culture, they were really never given enough spot in the limelight as much as people did to zombies! Perhaps, it is because of the fact that pulling off a complete werewolf production requires a lot more effort and budget. Unlike with zombies where you can just hire an extra, make him wear a ripped shirt, fake blood, and make him drool on the set, wolves costumes require more. And CGIs just don't appeal to the senses of the viewers! For them, the best werewolf movies feature realistic fursuit and the production design team needs to make it claws sprout seamlessly! Not to mention that the transformation scene that needs shirt-ripping. Otherwise, your show is branded cheap.

So, if werewolf mythology, where a human gets bitten by a wolf who then turns into werewolves after, tickles your fancy, then feel free to make yourself at home on this page. Our community of horror movie lovers compiled a curated list of werewolf movies that will surely send some chills down your spine. We highly suggest starting off with The Werewolf of London as it showcases the impeccable makeup skills of the artist Jack Pierce! Don't forget to cast your vote below just as Johannes Gelilang did and tell us your horror experience.

    "Among the best indie werewolf movies is Dog Soldiers. Its accolades don't lie. Although one thing that I can say is that its transition from being a military movie into a werewolf film isn't that smooth. I just felt that the crew could've done better. 🤷‍♂️"
