PQ: 3.5
AQ:4.5
Special Features: 4
Movie: 3.5

A really good release overall. Some of the night scenes look iffy at times, but pretty good overall.

I love the movie more than my score suggests, but it's not a classic in the traditional sense. Just a very entertaining 80's B movie. The kind of movie I can throw on anytime.

How do you add this to your collection when it doesn't appear? Will it get added eventually or do you have to put it in somewhere for them to add it?

Hint: As I assume your blu-ray.com search bar has the US flag you might want to set it to "All Countries" so you get the hit (or hits) you desire.

Don't know if it's been mentioned but the Audio Comm on this release is a brand new one from Red Shirt Pictures (Michael Felsher) with Dir Daniel Attias.

Was a nice surprise, expected it to be the DVD era one....

Well worth double dipping on this after getting the German disc last year, the extras are excellent.

Thanks for pointing that out, might hold onto the German disc for the old commentary track. It is one of my favorite King adaptations.

I'd say the PQ is a little tighter on the German release but Umbrella's disc wins hands down with everything else.

Keeping them both

Why does Umbrella continue to encode their flicks with such starved bitrate's?

Saying that I didn't really notice much in the way of compression issues but why not give it room to breath a little.

Marty, a young paraplegic played by the late Corey Haim (The Lost Boys), has a rocky relationship with his older sister, Jane, played by Megan Follows (Anne of Green Gables), who is burdened with helping him due to his handicapped condition, but he also enjoys a close friendship with his alcoholic uncle, played by Gary Busey (Point Break). Meanwhile, the residents of Tarker's Mill are terrified by grisly murders that are occurring around the small town. The father of Marty's girlfriend is killed, and, shortly after, Marty's best friend becomes another one of the victims. After a near fatal encounter, Marty realizes that a werewolf is responsible for the deaths. As the bodies continue to pile up, he and his sister must enlist in the reluctant help of their disbelieving uncle, because the werewolf is someone close to them.

The 1985 horror movie, Silver Bullet, which was directed by Daniel Attias (Alias, The Wire), is a screen adaptation of Stephen King's novella, Cycle of the Werewolf, but it benefits from a few minor alterations. Instead of going on a bloody rampage once a month during the full moon, the creature strikes frequently during a multi-day stretch. Most importantly, however, the troubled interactions of Marty and his family command the bulk of the narrative, to great result. Haim and Follows are fantastic in their roles, and an early scene, where Marty gives money to Jane to pay for her pantyhose as an apology after a practical joke goes awry, outlines the tenderness behind their constant quarreling. It's a tragedy that Haim's life became a spectacle during his final years, because, in this film, his instinctive acting talents are on full display. Busey comes close to stealing the show whenever he is on the screen, though, and the depth of his character is revealed through small gestures, including a scene where he starts to take a swig from a bottle during a funeral, but ultimately puts the bottle away. The strength of the cast of main characters is made clear during the film's one storytelling flaw, an underwhelmingly executed scene where the werewolf attacks townspeople who are hunting it down in a foggy swamp, because the sequence comes across as an intrusion that takes our attention away from Marty and his loved ones for too long.

Everett McGill (Twin Peaks) is outstanding as the lycanthropic antagonist, and, although his character is portrayed as a scheming villain who will go to any length to conceal his identity, he still elicits a semblance of sympathy. Terry O'Quinn (Lost), who plays the local sheriff, lends toughness to an earlier role in his career. Lawrence Tierney (Reservoir Dogs) makes a fun appearance as a bartender with a “Peacemaker” baseball bat.

Silver Bullet is a strangely conflicted movie, because its good-natured kids movie aesthetic, which would have normally merited a PG-13 rating, is intercut with some intensely gory moments that place it squarely in R-rated territory. Somehow, though, it all comes together in a wonderful way. This is one of the better Stephen King adaptations.

I will admit that nostalgia compels me to give Silver Bullet a much better rating than it actually deserves. When I was a freshman in high school, a friend of mine who had HBO at his house would occasionally record movies for me when I gave blank videotapes to him and requested certain titles. One of these VHS tapes, which contained Creepshow, Stand By Me, and Silver Bullet, was one of my prized possessions for years, and I ultimately wore it out due to repeat viewings. When I revisited this film today for first time in a couple of decades, by way of the new Blu-ray, several happy memories of my high school days came flooding back.

This region-free Umbrella Blu-ray is a dream come true. The video presentation will never be mistaken for demo quality, but it nonetheless delivers impressive detail as a faithful representation of the source material. Dialogue comes across quite well, and the werewolf's roar is conveyed in a fearsome way. The extras, including an excellent new director commentary track and an amazing Everett McGill interview, elevate this edition to the stratosphere.

With regard to Silver Bullet...

[Show spoiler]I'm always intrigued by older sister's narration during the final scene.

“I wasn't always able to say that. But I can say it now. I love you too, Marty.“

This comes across as a strangely melancholic moment, hinting that, in the time between the events portrayed in the movie and the older sister's recollection, unfortunate things happened between them and/or Marty passed away. In light of Corey Haim's death, it comes across as all the more poignant.

So, what do you think happened? Did the adult Marty turn into an alcoholic just like his uncle, fracturing the relationship with his sister?
Did Marty die an untimely death? Suicide?

I like to think that
[Show spoiler]his uncle dies horribly in a flaming car wreck and wracked by his grief and loneliness Marty turned into a raging alcoholic trying to reclaim some lost semblance of his uncle in the process.
But what do I know, it's only the first time I've seen it. Has anyone read the novel(a) it's based on?

Also I couldn't help but think how much better the movie would have been without Anne of Green Gables intro...

Yes. Cycle of the Werewolf differs from Silver Bullet in that the werewolf only kills once a month, during the full moon, and that the story stretches over an entire year.

The dynamics of the family relationships in the novel are similar, but the movie goes further into depth. The story ends the same way, so we don't know what happened to the characters in the future.

It's a quick read, and can be completed in one sitting.

Played my copy tonight on a PS4 in region A Canada, even though the back of the box says this disc is region B. Occasionally throughout the film the frame rate looks to be dropping to half and the pixelization seems to shift between an overall grain to vertical lines like corduroy. Anyone else seeing anything like this? It’s playig on a 4K 75” Sony. I’ll try it out on my Xbone and I’ll try out my old DVD. This TV usually makes DVDs look great so I’m curious what is going wrong.
