THE BOY WHO CRIED WEREWOLF REVIEWED
“The Boy Who Cried Werewolf” has never legally been on home video. While horror nerds have circulated copies here and there, its first home video bow looks amazing. For those that don’t know, it’s a basic horror tale about a young boy and his werewolf father. Nobody believes the kid, as he pleads for help. The movie bounces between local hippies, a small town sheriff and family friends trying to make sense of what’s happening.
This kind of B-Movie schlock used to keep Drive-Ins thriving. Now, it’s a fun throwback to a time where 30,000 and some willing actors could get you a movie in 28 days. Juran is a B-Movie directing God, so it’s nice to see that this was one of the movies that closed out his career. It’s just that this is the kind of movie that needs to be introduced to younger viewers. It’s an acquired taste that has to be slowly sold, but it’s worth it.
