1985 Classic "Silver Bullet" Do you Remember?

Updated on August 22, 2012

In 1985 I was eight years old just started watching movies alot. After browsing netflix a couple of days ago. I fell into a time warp. I was shot back to 1985 and started thinking about all those great movies I saw back then. A few days ago I talked about "Weird Science". Well today its all about "Silver Bullet".

Silver Bullet is a 1985 horror film based on the Stephen King novella Cycle of the Werewolf. It stars Corey Haim, Gary Busey, Terry O'Guinn and Everett McGill. It was directed by Daniel Attias.

Jane Coslaw (Follows), the narrator of the film, is the oldest sister in a dysfunctional family of four. Her narration centers on her strained relationship with her younger, paraplegic brother Marty (Haim) and their parents Nan and Bob. Their rocky relationship changes after a series of murders in their small rural town of Tarker's Mills, Maine.

Don't you just love Stephen King movies? I was such a big fan of Corey Haim during this time. It sad he died so young and had all those troubles. I watched this movie again for the first time in almost 20 years yesterday and I fell in love again with movie. Seeing Marty drive around in his silver bullet wheelchair is great. Haim was a very good actor who didn't get alot of credit for his talent.

It's funny how today kids think movies are suppose to be made with computers. If you sit back and watch this movie you will enjoy how movies were made back then. Yes some of the stuff is cheesy but that's how movies were back then. My kids wouldn't even think about watching a movie like this.

Made for only $7 million dollars "Silver Bullet" is a bad example of the twisted mind of Stephen KIng. Even though the movie made only $12 million dollars during its run at the Box Office it made an impact on young kids. Lots of critics didn't like the movie. Saying it didn't do King any justice. And some of that is true. You can't take a King book and turn it into a great movie all the time. I like the movie. It did a good job in trying to relate King's story to the screen.

Look, if you haven't seen the movie and have an hour and a half to kill watch it. It is a fun movie and trust me have your kids watch it with lights off. They will get scared.
