Moon of the Wolf (1972)

Can a 1970's made-for-TV, G-rated movie be scary?  In a word...No.  The acting is fine in Moon of the Wolf and includes some major character actors from the 1970's such as David Janssen [Harry O] and Geoffrey Lewis [The Lawnmover Man, The Devil's Rejects].  However, they don't have much material to work with.  This bloodless and virtually werewolf-less film is dull and lacks any kind of major suspense.  When the wolf finally appears, it is groan-worthy to say the least.  Had this been a feature film and the horror elements could have been added, it might have been a decent movie.  As it is, it's totally forgettable and a waste of time.

Move on, people, there's nothing to see here!

RATING: Fair.
