Stephen King's Silver Bullet

Stephen King is a mastermind but he's also a twisted story teller and unfortunately I'm a sucker for his movies, especially those that deal with the supernatural and his Silver Bullet does just that.

The story begins with citizens of a yokel town being murdered by a strange creature, however the main characters in the movie involve Jane Coslaw (Megan Follows) who has been given the task of being the protector of her brother Marty (Corey Haim). They are also joined by the eccentric Uncle (Gary Busey) who also provides a healthy dose of comedy in this horror comedy.

Unfortunately for Marty, he is wheelchair bound but the thoughtful Uncle Red creates him a new hotted up wheelchair and when he sneaks out to play with some fireworks, he encounters the unthinkable, a Werewolf.

Although he somehow manages to escape which was actually quite entertaining to view, his sister Jane and him decide to find out which of the townsfolk is the Werewolf and they bring Uncle Red to their fight, believing that he is the only adult they can trust. Thankfully the technological minded Red creates some silver bullets for the kids.

While Silver Bullet is a horror movie, it's actually quite a laid back and almost family friend movie (obviously not due to the rating) and even though it won't get you scared, it will definitely bring a smile to your face. With that said, the movie does have some parallels to The Lost Boys.

In regards to the video quality, it is a little lacking but considering it's age, it is acceptable. The video quality is on par with the audio and although it won't wow you, it will still draw you in. At the end of the day Stephen King's Silver Bullet is more a cult movie than a mainstream movie but hell... it made me laugh hard.

Still don't believe me? Check it out as a rental first!
