The Boy Who Cried Werewolf (1973)


I still have not got back in the swing of blogging since we returned from Pennsylvania. Maybe it is the fact that my house is cluttered with boxes as we pack, or maybe it is just that I have not found the right movie. My choice to get back into it was the 1970s campy fun, The Boy Who Cried Werewolf from 1973.


Plot/ Little Richie Bridgestone (whose parents are divorced) goes to spend the weekend with his father at his secluded mountain cabin, and witnesses his father being attacked by 'a creature' that the boy recognizes as a werewolf. He spends the rest of the film trying to convince his mother, and his therapist that his father is now a werewolf.


To me, this flick cried for a Horror Host. It is a fun, campy low budget gem that is actually more good than bad. Yes, it is nothing great with subpar acting and a totally unbelievable plot. Yet, there is something creepy that pops up from time-to-time. When you couple that with a fun looking werewolf and some awesome characters, you have a B-Movie gem that is definitely worth watching! If you enjoy camp, you will enjoy this!
