Reviews:
"...A splendid performance by Finney....An exceedingly chilling atmosphere..." - 07/22/1981 Variety

"[With] a genuinely supernatural atmosphere that builds and builds." - 11/01/2004 Uncut, p.164


"Two other werewolf movies came out the same year, THE HOWLING and AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON, but this is the one with smarts and a strong bite." - 07/02/2010 Wall Street Journal
