A pretty TV reporter takes a rest at a clinic and discovers slowly that its denizens are actually werewolves. Crammed with inside jokes, this horror comedy pioneered the use of the body-altering prosthetic makeup (by Rob Bottin) now essential for on-screen man-to-wolf transformations. At last count, followed by six sequels.
