Silver Bullet is one of the greatest of a dying breed of films. A touching coming of age story with a creepy horror film theme wrapped around it.
Silver Bullet is the tale of Marty Coleslaw, a weelchair bound boy who gets caught up in a string of local murders that all take place on a full moon. When he discovers who the killer is and even worse that he's a werewolf no one will believe him. Now he, his sister and his alchoholic uncle (played pitch perfectly by Gary Busey) must put an end to this unholy reign of terror.
This film is perfect for the "family that loves to scream together". It's light enough for children to enjoy without being too frightened and still offers enough wit, story and gore to keep the adults statisfied.
And with it's action packed ending scene, this film is one of the most delicious horror morsels that the eighties has to offer.
