What, you didn't have Michael Jackson in Thriller?  Well so much for this list!  :-P

An American Werewolf in London is still the BEST Werewolf movie of ALL TIME and has the best transformation of ALL TIME! Period!

Yea, I think Thriller should have at least gotten an honorable mention. But great list nonetheless.

The Company of Wolves looks like cinematic brilliance!! I'm going out to rent this right now!!

Yes, it is strange that "The Howling " didn't rate higher then four. It's always debatable as to which is better of the two Amereican Werewolf or Howling but surely it should have gotten in right behind # 1. Personally, I prefer the Dante flick becasue it's edgier and sexier and those effects are still some of Rob Bottins best work. That final wolf is the the stuff nightmares are made of. It leaves any CGI effect for dead. And the photography by John Hora on that is gorgeous. I wish Dante would return to this sort of stuff again with material that rates as r-rated. Mind you, having just watched AWIL it is a tough call. It is also a great flick.....inventive,scary, funny and stellar work by Rick Baker( and by Elmer Berstien too). Still.............I gotta give it to the Howling. Pity about the sequels though. They all had potential but fell short of the mark. Although,  II have to admit........Howling 2 has some of the best credits ever!

I strongly agree with both avidfan and Glenderry. How the hell can The Howling not be number 1,1a,or at least number 2 on this list. Eaglemaniac,you know I respect you big time,but I have to disagree with you when you've stated that American Werewolf in London has the best transfornmation scene and especially disagree about it being the best werewolf movie of all-time! I'm not just talking about The Howling,although while we're at it,we'll go there. The transformation scenes in both films are outstanding so it's a close call(Rick Baker served as a consultant or superviser to The Howling for your info!). AWIL,is a good movie but to me,far from a great one. I think it had a weak script that John Landis stretched out as much as he could. It had great effects,good humor,and a few scary scenes. It's biggest strengths were at the beginning and the climax at the end. In between,the film didn't have that much to offer,it wasn't terrible but it could've been better. Again AWIL was good but I think too many of you are overrating that movie. The Howling on the other hand is way the hell scarier,had a much better script from a much better writer(John Sayles),with better characters,and has at least as good creature transformation effects as AWIL!

Dog Soldiers,The Wolf Man(1941)Ginger Snaps 1 and 2 are also better than AWIL

KeithDaniel, hey., no problem! That's what makes these discussions so fun. We can agree to disagree about certain things. I just think American Werewolf is the greatest of all time. I LOVE that movie! And Jenny Agutter was such a babe! I loved the dark humor, and as Glenderry said, that last werewolf is the stuff of nightmares! Best line in that movie: "Mommy, a naked American man stole my balloons!" Hilarious scene!

I agree with AWIL been numero UNO as far as transformations go but agree with the fellas above that it wasn't or is the best werewolf movie ever. Too over the top with the ghost stuff and comedy, I loved it but just not the best IMHO, gotta go with The Howling and hopefully the new Wolfman movie will mess up this list

I think Underworld should have at least gotten an "honorable mention".

 

As for folks talking about Thriller, as great as it is, this list is about wereWOLVES. Jackson's character was feline.
