I tend to watch or read just about anything werewolf related. Comes from the Howling being one of the first horror movies I can remember seeing.
I really really regret that tendency now.
The title character is hardly in the movie at all. The story is disjointed and goes all over the place. We spend more time with the Sheriff than anyone else.
This movie is currently available on Netflix and I still feel ripped off. I cannot recommend this movie to anyone.
This move does have budget effects, but that did not affect my rating at all. I expect that from low budget movies.
