Editors Note
Note When a mild-mannered, middle-aged book editor gets bitten by a wolf, it gives him a shot of confidence over younger colleagues, highly tuned senses and a few new lycanthropic appetites. Like a clever "New Yorker" cartoon, this urbane horror film satirizes middle age in New York's cutthroat social and business worlds.
Plot Summary
Summary The deposed editor-in-chief of an old, distinguished publishing firm, recently taken over by a multi-millionaire, corporate raider, is bitten by a wolf on a lonely stretch of road in Vermont the night of a full moon. As he slowly watches himself metamorphose into something lupine, he discovers that he has been betrayed by his most promising protege, his wife of 16 years has been unfaithful, and that he has fallen in love with the raider's beautiful, headstrong daughter. What follows is a series of grisly events that reaches a bloody and horrifying climax.

Sight and Sound "...The fun is waiting for the moment when the eyes glint, the teeth are bared, and Wolfman Jack makes his welcome entrance..." 09/01/1994 p.52
Entertainment Weekly "...Nicholson is thoroughly sympathetic...[and] even more compelling after a wolf bite brings out the animal instincts..." 01/13/1995 pp.68-9
Variety "...An intriguing thriller...Enjoyable for its humor and sophistication..." 06/13/1994
USA Today "...It's the most polished New York creep show since ROSEMARY'S BABY and the classiest film in six full moons..." -- 4 out of 4 stars 06/17/1994 p.1D
Los Angeles Times "...Invariably an actor to watch, Nicholson is adept and surprisingly low-key and subtle in many of the scenes....Nicholson and Pfeiffer play nicely together..." 06/17/1994 p.F2
Chicago Sun-Times "...The tone of the movie is steadfastly smart and literate....The movie looks great..." 06/17/1994 p.37
