“Not a spelling error, we swear”

Films: Werewolf (1995)

Alias: Paul Niles

Type: Mystical

Location: Civilized Area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Neutral, leaning on Evil

Summary: Before you start, we're just reciting our favorite uttering of the name of the lycan menace we've ever heard, period. But really, it's just one of many errors in a comedy of several.

History: One day, the skeleton of a Skinwalker, or yee naaldlooshii, is dug up by Arizonian archaeologists. Upon getting scratched by it, one guy turns into a werewolf and is killed on his first night out. Then their boss, Yuri, master of the inconsistent hair style, decides to go insane and create the first "man-made werewolf". His first attempt crashes his car and dies during the transformation, but writer Paul Niles is the first success when Yuri stabs him with the Skinwalker skull. Now Paul, you is a Wurrwulf!

Notable Kills: Ends up on the receiving end of a random citizen's impressive beat-down before managing to turn it around.

Final Fate: In the end, Paul survives his trials, and even ends up with his love, who has been converted as well. Uh...happy ending, we guess?

Powers/Abilities: Apparently, even bad contact with a werewolf's ancestor's skeleton can convert one, as well as a bite.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 2.5-The werewolf costumes are simply too cheap to be considered that scary. And on top of that, most of the werewolves here are total chumps, with our main one almost getting taken out by a random passerby. Honestly, if Paul is still our there, he'd best not take on a whole gang of humans by his lonesome.

Trivia: -This was one of the most recent films that MST3K riffed in its original run. Kevin Murphy has gone on record saying that this film's inherent ridiculousness makes it "a gift from God".

-The reasoning for Yuri's constant hair changes, disappearing characters, and other goofs was that this film was critically underfunded, leading to almost every shoot being a rat race.

I see what you did there, man.
The nightmare is complete...then comes the hilarity.
Wil. E. Coyote really went mad this time.

This is worth it's own movie.

The couple that looks silly together stays together.
