Product Description

What’s a high school kid got to do to be popular? Just let down his hair and howl! Starring Michael J. Fox (Back to the Future), Teen Wolf is an outrageous comedy about a shy teenager with more than a changing voice to contend with... he’s a budding young werewolf. And when his newfound powers help him score at basketball--and with the popular girls--he has some pretty hairy decisions to make.

Special Features:
  • Sneak Peek: Teen Wolf--The TV series
  • Theatrical trailer

From Amazon.co.uk

Michael J Fox’s other iconic role of the 1980s saw him step into the shoes of an otherwise unspectacular high school student, who realises that he’s slowly transforming into a werewolf. We’re talking Teen Wolf, a richly cherished cult film of the decade. It’s also one that overcame originally middling box office to earn its cult film stripes, leading to a sequel, and a surprisingly good TV series.

But it’s the original that’s still where the main fun is, and it’s been spruced up nicely for its Blu-ray upgrade. It’s hard to think that Teen Wolf has ever looked quite as sharp, courtesy of the good 1080p spring clean it’s been given. It still shows the film’s age off, and you’d never mistake it for something recent, yet that’s now become part of Teen Wolf’s charm. In fact, you could rightly argue that the Blu-ray showcases just what made so many warm to the film in the first place.

And if it’s whetted your appetite for more, then the disc also features a look at the more recent Teen Wolf television series. It’s a different beast, albeit sharing Teen Wolf DNA. Still, it’s the original that’s the undoubted star of the show here, with the emphasis on practical effects, and a hard to capture sense of fun, that demands repeated viewings. It was never designed to win awards, perhaps. But Teen Wolf was certainly made to be watched, time and time again. This Blu-ray? It’s the best way to do it. --Jon Foster

Scott Howard is a high school student with problems.

He is on a lacklustre basketball team, and he's having problems getting noticed by the prettiest girl in his school.

When he comes home from a party, he discovers his new problem. He is a half human- wolf hybrid. He tries to keep this a secret, but during a basketball game the secret comes out and it helps Scott to turn his life around.

The basketball team starts to become a contender for the state championship, and he becomes very popular.

But Scott's father warns him about turning into the wolf out of anger....

Teen Wolf, also known as the Fox film released in 1985 where he didn't go back in time, is a guilty pleasure from start to finish. On one hand you have the wolf doing all the cool stuff and becoming the popular pup, and on the other hand the film could be seen as a metaphor for puberty and coming to terms with big changes in your life (like finishing high School).

All of the cast are good in their respective roles, but if you a looking for a Fox movie in the same vein as BTTF, you will be disappointed.

Narrative is a bit choppy, and there really are no other plot points apart from the fact that there is a big basketball championship going on. So in theory it's really a sports movie.

But the make up is good, even if the first few moments he sounds like Micael Jackson, and it has that unmistakable eighties feel to it.

Cheesy goodness that is endlessly watchable, despite a few flaws.

And no, there is no flashing person at the end, If you look closely, they are just hiding the fact that their flies are undone.

the transfere is good, sound is ok.
no matter what it is better than a dvd.

I like 80s movies, I dont like it when people review a movie, I like to know if its a good transfere.
I am not into extras or BD live. I just want a good clean/sound movie to enjoy...
Lets hope PORKYS comes to blu ray.....

I love this film. Or at least I thought I did. I watched it when it was released in 1985 purely because it had the brilliant Michael J. Fox in it and I thought it was great fun. Unfortunately, it hasn't aged particularly well. The story feels a little trite and the entire film feels like a lost opportunity to examine how a teenager would cope with discovering he's a natural born werewolf. But, then again, the modern TV show by the same title is doing a pretty good job of examining those themes already. This film rest solely on the charming, pitch-perfect performance of Fox and rewatching this today, it is still his performance that raises the film above it's script.
How Marty...oops....I meant Scott comes to term with his wolfiness and learns to be a team player at basketball is the stuff of countless teen movies and TV shows and is full of predictable situations and solutions. Probably the biggest surprise is how easily everyone accepts Scott's transformation into his alter-ego without so much as a pitchfork or torch on display. This is all the more surprising given that the 80's weren't particularly known for being accepting of minorities or people who were different.
Anyway, if you loved the film in the 80's you'll probably still really enjoy it now.
As for the blu-ray: it's a minor step up from the DVD version. There is still a lot of grain/dirt/blemishes to be seen on the picture and the DTS Mono soundtrack leaves a lot to be desired. But, there is a definite improvement over the DVD so it's worth the upgrade if you can get it cheap. Shame about the extras: a trailer for the film and a 'promo' for the TV show. I can't see this film ever getting a Special Edition treatment and a complete digital makeover, so this is probably the best we're gonna get.

Love this film, the music is ace. So why did I buy this. Well it was cheap so a bargain really. But the pic quality was ok Def a better upgrade than dvd pic quality is grainy and sound was in mono not stereo Prob because the age of the film. It's one of these films that's prob not worth remastering as not a demand for it. But for 6 quid it's Def a better upgrade than my dvd but only just. I'm giving it 4 stars just because of the film. It would have been 2 stars for pic and sound otherwise

Got this in the two blurays for £10 as I hadn't see this for a while. Still good after all this time. Well worth a £5

When you talk about movies and the 80s there is only one movie...Back To The Future.
But when you see Back To The Future you know that you have - need to see Teen Wolf!

An 80s classic!A movie about a teenager named Scott (Michael J. Fox) who learns the hard way that it doesn't always take a radical transformation to succeed in life.

If you are 30,40 years old and you still havent seen Teen Wolf you probably never will...but for the rest of us,who grow up with this film the Bluray release is a must have!

The HD video really helps the movie to shine and the time was really good on this wolf :)

Enjoy, "everyone wants to be special"...
