Film Review: Silver Bullet
A 1985 horror film based on a Stephen King story titled Cycle of the Werewolf. Set in the late 70s in Maine with many unsolved brutal murders taking place in the sleepy town. A paraplegic boy played by Corey Haim is the main character in the film. Also Gary Busey plays a drunk,some what fitting for the time. The wheel chaired bound boy is playing with his new modified wheel chair named " Silver Bullet" on a bridge with fireworks on a dark evening and is confronted by the werewolf. He narrowly escapes after blasting the werewolf's left eye out with a bottle rocket. Suspsion rise from the incident. Gary Busey, a priest, Corey Haim on a wheelchair and one of the better films that captured Stephen Kings stories to the screen. The film won my heart at an early age and is one of the better werewolf films to watch this month for the holiday spirits.
