Silver Bullet

March 25th, 2022

Stephen King’s tale of a small town with a big werewolf problem is the topic of this episode of “Boys and Ghouls”.  First conceived as a calendar, it grew into a sparse novel titled, “Cycle of the Werewolf”.  This grew and transformed into the 1985 feature film, “Silver Bullet”.

 

Listen in as Kat and Marshall detail the origin of this video store favorite, from its early collaborators to its role in establishing North Carolina as a long-time center of film and television production.  Join us as we reflect on how much Gary Busey brought to the screen as the sometimes-responsible Uncle Red.  And remember the shining light that was young Cory Haim, as the wheelchair-bound boy who survives a werewolf attack then has to get some serious help before the next full moon.

 

Also, Kat proves that no detail is too small as she examines a summertime Maine tradition, briefly mentioned in the book.  And Marshall shares the tale of his own encounter with the larger-than-life Gary Busey.
