Publisher Will Randall becomes a werewolf and has to fight to keep his job. - Rob Hartill

Worn down and out of luck, aging publisher Will Randall (Jack Nicholson) is at the end of his rope when a younger co-worker snatches his job out from under his nose. But after being bitten by a wolf, Will suddenly finds himself energized, more competitive than ever, and possessed with amazingly heightened senses. Meanwhile, the beautiful daughter of his shrewd boss begins to fall for him - without realizing that the man she's begun to love is gradually turning into the creature by which he was bitten. - Mark Neuenschwander,

Raymond Alden (Christopher Plummer) has a pretty but estranged daughter, Laura (Michelle Pfeiffer), who is attracted to his subordinate, Will Randall (Jack Nicholson), who has recently been separated from his spouse, Charlotte (Kate Nelligan). Will is special, in a way, because he has been bitten by a seemingly dead wolf, and finds himself energized, his senses heightened, and has acquired a thirst for blood. He consults Dr. Vijay Alezais (Om Puri), who gives him an amulet that will prevent him from changing into a werewolf in return for a bite. Will refuses, but accepts the amulet as a gift. Will and Laura continue to meet, while Will's rival, Stewart Swinton (James Spader), who is also attracted to Laura, will force a confrontation between them, complicated by the involvement of the Police who suspect Will of killing his wife. - rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

While driving through Vermont, middle-aged Chief Editor Will Randall (Jack Nicholson) hits a wolf with his car. He stops the car to drag the animal out of the road, but the wolf is alive and bites his hand. He goes to the doctor, takes a rabies vaccine, and the doctor releases him. Will is under stress in his job since the publishing house where he works has been bought by tough millionaire Raymond Alden (Christopher Plummer), and the employees are expecting downsizing. Will is supported by his wife Charlotte Randall (Kate Nelligan) and his colleague and assistant Stewart Swinton (James Spader). Raymond invites Will to a party at his manor and he learns that Stewart will occupy his position in the publishing house. Will also meets Raymond's rebel daughter Laura Alden (Michelle Pfeiffer). The next morning, Will Randall goes to his work and learns that he has acute senses and he feels more competitive and decided to fight for his job. But Will is becoming a wolf and his transformation completely changes his life. - Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Under a full moon, the suave middle-aged editor-in-chief, Will Randall, is bitten by a crafty black wolf in an empty stretch of road, on his way home in snow-capped Vermont. Little by little, as the unknown but baneful infection spreads, Will comes to realise that his once-weary body, inexplicably, has become the host of a new set of powers and abilities, as his acute sensory perception marks the beginning of an indescribable and almost beastly transformation. Now, in the cut-throat publishing industry, no one is a match for the fresh and lupine Will; not even his much younger back-stabbing protégé, Stewart, or the publishing firm's new billionaire owner, Raymond Alden. Under those circumstances, could the legend be true? Is Will, indeed, turning into the cryptic creature known as the werewolf? - Nick Riganas
