The Werewolf of Washington

Film, Comedy

Time Out says

A hit-or-miss comedy which blends political satire and lycanthropic laughs, but lacks bite. Stockwell plays a White House aide who is bitten by a werewolf while in Hungary, then returns to Washington to wreak havoc in the corridors of power. The President (McGuire) and his pragmatic psychiatrist effect a cover-up (cf. Watergate), fearing the press will use Stockwell's senatorial snacks to discredit the presidency. A poorly integrated subplot involving a mad-dwarf scientist (Dunn) is good for a few laughs, but like the half-hearted pastiche of Universal's The Wolf Man, it goes nowhere.
