Films: Wolfen (1981)
Alias: Various, most notably Eddie Holt and the Old Indian
Location: Civilized area
Height/Weight: That of average humans (or wolves).
Affiliation: Neutral, leaning on Evil
Summary: Werewolves are deeply seeped into several world cultures, like any famous mythological creature. Here, the Native American folks of New York have their own creative spin on it all.
History: The Wolfen are a group of Native American spirits that hunt down humans on a regular basis, liking it to how humanity hunts itself with the class system they instigated. This particular group of New York Wolfen are pissed that their old hunting grounds are about to be undermined by urban construction. Now, they'll kill to make a point.
Notable Kills: One Wolfen tosses a guy off a bridge with nothing but its bulk.
Final Fate: After our protagonists are confronted, one of them smashes the plans for the construction project, which seems to put the Wolfen at ease. The spirits soon vanish before the police arrive, their current destination unknown.
Powers/Abilities: Shapeshifting into wolves, disappearing.
Weakness: Only those with the eyes of a hunter have a chance.
Scariness Factor: 4-Unlike most werewolves, these ones are downright spirits, meaning that they won't let something as paltry as a silver bullet slow them down. You'd better hope you don't tick them off at any point.
Trivia: -The way the POV shots of the Wolfen were done would be modified to make certain camera effects for future films, such as "Predator".
-Due to the Wolfen effects screwing up, the film was delayed, and another effects team had to take action.
