Best horror movies about werewolves

werevolvesThe werewolf, considered one of the most fascinating legendary creatures, is a figure that has always generated much interest in both literature and film.

Horror cinematography is indeed very rich in films dedicated to these human beings who, due to a curse, turn into werewolves on full moon nights. Horror fans will immediately remember the classic The wolf man (1941) by George Waggner or, to name the films in which the best werewolf transformations appear, it is impossible not to mention An American werewolf in London (1981) by John Landis followed by The Howling (1981) by Joe Dante.

Nostalgics will surely prefer the aforementioned films and many, many others, at the expense of new productions that, facilitated by massive CGI, bring CGI transformations to the screen, depriving the film of the charm typical of the old films.
However, among the films about werewolves, the saga Underworld and Howl by Paul Hyett.

In this article we will try to group what we consider to be the best werewolf horror movies. The list will embrace titles in no particular order and will be constantly updated.


The wolf man (The Wolf Man), directed by George Waggner, is a 1941 film that has become one of the cornerstones of horror cinema. The progenitor of a long series of werewolf-themed films, Wolf Man was the inspiration for such films as An American Werewolf in London and The Howling. Notable cinematography by Joseph Valentine, screenplay, and makeup by Jack Pierce (not trivial for the time).
With Lon Chaney Jr, Claude Rains, and Bela Lugosi.
