A werewolf terrorizes a small city where lives the paralytic Marty Coslaw, his uncle, and his sister, the story's narrator.
When Red questions the culprit's supposed lycanthropy by pointing out that there wasn't a full moon when Marty was attacked, Marty and Jane posit that while the stories say that the werewolves turn during the full moon, this werewolf may perhaps turn whenever he likes. The werewolf also targets a very specific woman in her own home and breaks in to murder her there, which is uncharacteristic of most werewolves who in both mythology and other works of modern fiction keep to themselves for the most part and only attack those who enter into their territory.
The last full moon of that Spring came a little more than a month before school let out for Summer vacation. Our town's long nightmare began that night.
When Brady is flying his kite, a string can be seen above the kite holding it in place.
SPOILER: Everett McGill is billed twice - once as Reverend Lowe at the top of the credits and as Werewolf at the bottom of the credits.
The UK DVD release of the film in 2001 contains the original movie trailer and spoken commentary by director Daniel Attias, both of which is not available on any other officially released DVD including the US.
