    Synopsis


    Wolfen
    Wolfen, a frightening horror movie based upon a novel by Whitley Strieber, concerns Detective Dewey Wilson (Albert Finney), who gets assigned to investigate the strange murder of a millionaire and his wife in a downtown park. Wilson and his friend, city coroner Whittington (Gregory Hines), aided by criminal psychologist Rebecca Neff (Diane Venora) connect the killing to those of several others, primarily winos, drug addicts and derelicts, all of whom seem to have been mutilated by wild animals. Their search leads them to a group of Native Americans led by Edward James Olmos who tell them of a legend of a superior species that once roamed the area, but now are living and hunting in the slums of New York. The film is engrossing, frightening and intelligent, with sensational special effects. Director Michael Wadleigh uses these effects to great advantage, frequently showing the movements of the characters through the eyes of the "Wolfen." This film is also the screen debut of Hines. ~ Linda Rasmussen, Rovi

      Some might be put off by the lack of werewolf action in Wolfen, but stick with it since this delves into territory seldom seen in lycanthropy. With Native American lore coming into play, this mystery is there to solve by Albert Finney and his journey might intrigue viewers looking for something different...'80s style that is. The blu-ray from Warner is assembly line quality but it is much better than any previous release.

      I had read the book. This movie does a good job of presenting the book. Special effects at the end are not very good.
