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