When I first heard about this documentary, I thought it would go in the way of so many other retrospective pieces where it's simply fans saying how much they love it. That's not the case at all here. Instead of being a thoughtless document of the fans, this documentary takes an incredibly analytical look at this controversial film and it's problematic director and constructs an interesting redemptive arc for Elizabeth Berkeley.

Don't ya wish you were still young, watch a movie that came out when you turned eleven.
This was a fun feminist take on the werewolf film, which is definitely not something I’ve seen before. I really liked the relationship between the death-obsessed sisters whose relationship turns rocky when one becomes a werewolf. It’s got a fun part for Mimi Rogers, too! And you know I’m always down for some fun Mimi Rogers! Anyway,…
