Quick! What’s the best werewolf movie to come out in 1993??? Sort of a trick question…..because there was kind of only one werewolf movie that came out in 1993. And that werewolf movie is…….Full Eclipse! See, they probably didn’t want to call it Full Moon because that’s kinda too obvious. Plus, in this movie – a full eclipse renders the werewolves to be indestructible, even against silver! But enough gabbing about eclipses and whatnot, let’s watch the original trailer. Oh, and sidenote: Mario Van Peebles is in this!
Yeah, as you can gather from the trailer – there’s a shit ton of guns, jumping, biting, clawing, and Mr. Van Peebles in Full Eclipse. I still remember seeing the VHS in my local video store (I believe it was the unrated version). Directed by Anthony Hickox (who also directed Waxwork and Hellraiser III: Hell On Earth), this movie is the epitome of a guilty pleasure.
And if you are having a hankering to see Full Eclipse on the big screen, I have pretty sweet news if you live in the Los Angeles area. There will be a special screening on February 7th at The Hayworth Theater in downtown LA……and Anthony Hickox will be in attendance! Someone get Mario on the phone too while we’re at it.
