Dog Soldiers.

I absolutely love this film! Best werewolf film by miles for me. Now I know what 99% of people will say "what about American Werewolf In London?" - dont get me wrong that is a great film but Dog Soldiers is better IMO.

It has humour, tension, horror and it avoids all the cliches of Hollywood werewolf films. There is no love story with the boy and the girl riding off into the sunset afterwards. You dont get would be victims crying and begging for their life, they treat their soon to be death with sarcasm and bravado "Im gonna f*ckin avv you!!!!!!!!!!!" The best character has to be Spoon: "I hope I give you the sh*ts you f*ckin wimp!"

Anyone else agree or disagree?

The Greatest Werewolf Film Is...not in existence yet.

I don't think I've ever seen a good werewolf film. They're hard to pull off.

Is it because the hair gets matted on your hand?

I like Dog Soldiers that much that I once watched it on a Friday, and then watched it again the following Tuesday.

Dog Soldiers is a good film , Pertwee steals it for me when he is being glued up Laugh

American Werewolf in London has to get a mention , it scarred the pants off me when i was younger .

The Howling... it has aged most definitely but the sense of unease is much more deep rooted than simply in the werewolves themselves. There is something else that makes it quite spooky... it just has an atmosphere that is psychologically unsettling... especially in the early scenes when the female reporter is on the trail of a 'serial killer'.

Not sure. But part of me is glad as I cant see it ever getting close to the original.

And yeah Sarge is brilliant:

"My guts are hanging out!"
"We'll just have to put them back in then"
"THEY WONT F@CKIN FIT!!!"
