Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The often muddled, but scary Wolfen tops The Howling and An American Werewolf in London as the best of 1981's three worthwhile lupine thrillers."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"Wolfen goes through the paces of a typical detective thriller, but I'll bet you've never seen anything like it."
‑ Bill Chambers, Film Freak Central
"Some sort of mixed-up commentary on gentrification."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"Half silly and half profound."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"I found it easy to root for the werewolves over the derelicts, millionaires, and arrogant police who were victimized."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Wolfen is a thriller with a metaphysical side to it."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Sets up its mysteries with an admirable tenacity, though the resolution we're ultimately offered is more than a bit forgettable."
‑ Scott Weinberg, Apollo Guide
