Waxwork - Werewolf Head Split

There are certain movie monsters that stick with you throughout your childhood causing a slight fear of the dark and years of bad dreams. Linda Blair in the Exorcist has put hundreds of kids into therapy and if you look back now, she is still creepy as hell. Not so much can be said about other movie monsters.....

Take the Wolfman for example from the very underrated 1988 film Waxwork. Scared the crap out of me as a child, but when I look back at it now, it just might be one of the worst werewolf costumes ever. The Werewolf itself doesn't really look all that bad, maybe it's the lifeless eyes or the comically over-sized ears that make him look like a giant wolf-rabbit. Still.....I will take bad costumed Werewolves over bad CGI Werewolves anyday of the week, especially if they deliver the bloody goodness....

....and the Waxwork Werewolf DOES deliver. In the most impressive death scene of the movie, our victim hits the Werewolf with a chair. Not a good idea, as it only pisses him off. The wolf dusts himself off before grabbing the bastard's head and violently tearing it in half vertically.
