Horror Marathon Day 17: Silver Bullet

Zombies, Vampires…. Bah!  Werewolves are where it’s at son!

Let me tell you a little story, a woman named Colleen had 3 children.  She loved movies, especially science fiction and horror flicks.  She got that from her dad. So one day she bought a VCR and then bought another one that could record.  With 2 VCRs and the ability to copy from one to the other, she and her oldest son began to rent movies and using blank tapes and ELP setting put 3 movies on a VHS tape.  A few of those tapes were played over and over, to the point of memorization.  Pet Cemetery, Aliens and Silver Bullet were some of those movies.

Tonight I’m talking about Silver Bullet.  It’s got a get pedigree, Steven King wrote this story and you have Gary Busey and Cory Haim star in this.  For some of you, you haven’t seen it because it came out in the 80s.  Dudes and dudettes, I love this movie, not only because I am that older son of Colleen’s and I have seen this a million times, but because this film is GREAT.  The hero is a kid, but more than that, it’s a paraplegic and the villain is (I don’t want to spoil it).

This movie has great moments that are scary, some great great funny bits and did I mention it has Gary Busey?  Come on!  It's older, but still holds up.

If you haven't. or it's been a LONG time, go back and watch the Classic movie, Silver Bullet!
