Films: Bad Moon (1996)
Location: Forest/Haunted home
Height/Weight: That of an average human.
Affiliation: Neutral, leaning on Evil
Summary: Finally, a werewolf that actually looks the part when it comes to this decade. And what a werewolf it is. So terrifying, that it takes another animal almost exactly on its level to stop it.
History: Ted Harrison had the misfortune of running into a werewolf in Nepal that killed his girlfriend and bit him on the shoulder before getting its head blown off. Now, Ted has returned to the American woods to live not too far away from his sister and nephew. His family at first welcomes him, but their dog, a German Shepard named Thor, begins noticing a number of red flags in the form of odd behaviors and some literal skeletons in Ted's metaphorical closet. All Thor knows is that Ted is a werewolf, and everyone is in danger. Not that Ted wants it to happen either.
Notable Kills: Nothing special
Final Fate: After getting viciously mauled by Thor and shot several times by his sister, Ted retreats into the woods before the dog tracks him down again. Now seriously wounded, Ted begs Thor to just finish him off, which he does.
Powers/Abilities: Transforms during the full moon and can transfer the curse with a bite.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 4-You may not need anything fancy to beat this werewolf, but you'd be cowering in a puddle of your own sweat if you ever saw this savage beast coming your way. Easily one of the most wolf-like of any werewolves we've seen, the fantastic effects work make it look like a psychotic man-wolf is indeed snarling at you and ready to rip you to pieces.
Trivia: -The original novel this film was based on, "Thor", was mainly told from the dog's POV, and mostly dealt with Thor's inner conflict over keeping the werewolf away from his family, or respecting it as a beast separate from his "pack".
-At least three different German Shepards were used to portray Thor, one of which was an attack dog perfect for the final confrontation.
