Synopsis:
A real-estate tycoon, his coke-binging wife and a slum wino have something grisly in common: They're the latest victims in a series of random murders. A veteran NYPD detective soon suspects the killings may be supernatural and deliberate: caused by ages-old beings of cunning intelligence and incredible power defending their turf from the encroachments of humankind. Using a Steadicam camera and Louma crane to simulate the predator's perspective, director Michael Wadleigh achieves a remarkable blend of New York City mystery and menace not captured on film before.

Better than you would expect - Wolfen review by JA

Spoiler Alert
30/10/2017

I have to admit I wasn't expecting all that much from this as films centred around animal attacks can be somewhat exploitative in the worst ways however this is far deeper than most. Brilliantly mixing crime detective work with horror elements while also having a solid cast, excellent camera work, an engrossing plot, a good score by James Horner and themes that genuinely work as it deals with mans interaction with nature, mysticism, class war and urban decay which all add to the film as a whole.
