werewolfYes, THE WEREWOLF OF WOODSTOCK is awful but the sight of Michael Parks trying to hide beneath his cap the entire telefilm is worth one viewing. It throws one back to a bygone Shocktober! era of late-nite television monster viewing…and you can’t not love a film with hardhat reactionary-turned-werewolf falling in love with a hippie rockstar who just missed Woodstock produced by Dick Clark. Especially as presented on the late, lamented ABC’S WIDE WORLD OF ENTERTAINMENT, an interesting way to fill a late evening time slot with myriad programs, some of the most interesting of the network 70’s, including “The Horror Hall Of Fame” and the pinnacle of the TV Art Horror era, Alice Cooper’s WELCOME TO MY NIGHTMARE. I never saw it except through the pages of “The Monster Times” in their infamous “Worst Issue Ever”…Growl, hippies…
