For years I've been trying to find this movie I saw on TV once. I only saw the end. It featured a teenage boy (about 18 years old) and his family hiding out in a cabin. The kid is making molotov cocktails and preparing for something. Sure enough two bad guys show up and I think one of them had a golden pistol. They start fighting and one of the guys turns into a werewolf type creature. The kid wounds it and tracks it through the woods to finish it off with his lever action rifle. Anyone know the name of this movie?

I saw this probably mid to late 90s. I'm guessing it was an 80's American film. It was live action.

    Roughly when did you watch this movie? Was it in English? Live-action? Any additional details, even minor, may help someone find this.

    Sounds like it could be Silver Bullet. It's a flick from the 80's based on Steven King's novella Cycle of the Werewolf, with Gary Busey & Corey Haim: Trailer Nov 25, 2014 at 8:27
  • No it wasn't Silver Bullet. I saw this a while back and was really hoping it would be the movie I was thinking about, but it wasn't. Thanks for the suggestion.

As per the description, I think the movie you're referring to is Watchers, starring Corey Haim. It has a hairy creature and also involves a hunting gun and Molotov cocktails.

  • OMG, This is it!!!!!! Thank you so much!! You have no idea how long I've been looking for this movie

The best I can come up with are:

Prophecy 1979 (not "THE Prophecy", just "Prophecy"):

and the obscure/hard-to-find "Hard Rock Nightmare"

Check these out and see if any of them ring a bell. One thing that would help: do you remember if the movie took place in modern times (well, the 1980's) or medieval or the old west/western.

    Why would either of them match? Jan 12, 2015 at 22:32

Could it be "Lone Wolf" 1988?
