435) FULL MOON HIGH
(1981 dir. Larry Cohen) Date Seen: October 4 2014

Minor Larry Cohen, but still worthwhile. At it's funniest it reminded me of a hybrid between STRANGERS WITH CANDY and the WOLF MAN. At it's worst, some of the lesser Zucker brothers' movies. More the former than the latter, though. Adam Arkin does his best beefcake Groucho Marx, while the rest of the ensemble is reliably goofy and colorful. Certainly more preferable to other teen lycanthrope comedies I can think of. (CURSED, TEEN WOLF, dreck sequels like AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN PARIS). Recommended for Cohen completists & fans of joke-per-minute spoofs.
