“Not just gory but actually frightening, not just funny but clever”
Tom Huddleston / Time Out

“The big man-to-wolf transformation scene is still a marvel”
Peter Bradshaw / The Guardian

“Landis’s editing and the razor’s-edge balance of horror and comedy are still fresh”
Robert Hanks / The Independent (UK)

“A howling good horror comedy that continues to be the high standard in creature feature filmmaking”
Matthew Pejkovic / Matt’s Movie Reviews

“All-time great horror movies, a pitch-perfect mix of belly laughs and genuine scares fifteen years before Scream”
Rob Gonsalves / eFilmCritic.com

“Because of the admittedly justified attention paid to Rick Baker’s amazing werewolf transformation effects, certain other elements of this irreverent, impressively realized horror film have been neglected. John Landis’ witty script and careful direction strike just the right balance between nervous laughter and savage gore, and a pair of nightmares near the beginning of the film are among the most canny and effective shock sequences of the ’80s. The appealing cast is highlighted by Griffin Dunne, who turns in a sardonically funny performance as an increasingly grotesque decomposing zombie which provides most of the film’s considerable dark humor. — wonderfully entertaining and highly recommended.” – Robert Firsching / AllMovies
