The worst part was the terrible comical werewolf mask that made up the “old” werewolf (Brion James) who infected a Mom (Jeanne Bates). The werewolf looked more like a comic version of a vampire. Creating a more realistic mask would have added more horror to the movie. Other than that, the acting was great for a movie of its type: horror/comedy.
A “guy” comes to a mother’s door answering an ad for a
room. It turns out that he’s a
werewolf. Mom is extremely naïve, because
he posed as a blind man which creeped me out, but it didn’t creep Mom out at
Her son (Mark Thomas Miller) was a newsman who visited
his Mom often especially after finding out that she was killing people because
she was a werewolf. So, her son decides
to keep her locked up in her own room in her own house to protect her from
herself. Her son asked a doctor to come
to his Mom’s house to examine her, but Mom buried the doctor in the back yard like
Mom had a daughter who was very well-to-do and lived
out of state. But her daughter never
visited and sent Mom a pair of dime-store slippers once a year. The one time her daughter visited, her Mom
However, Mom did not kill her pregnant daughter-in-law
nor her son who each treated Mom with the respect a good mother deserves. I did like the idea of a good Mom kicking
ass, but a few innocent people getting killed goes with the territory.

When you are younger and discovered to have fibroids,
doctors usually tell you not to worry about them if they are not giving you
severe pain. Mild menstrual pain is acceptable
“Fibroids are also called uterine myoma. They are noncancerous growths in the uterus
that can develop during a woman’s childbearing years. Fibroids can also cause prolonged menstrual
cycles and low back pain. 200,000 cases
occur every year.”
I started getting pain so severe that I couldn’t stand up five days out
of every month. No amount of any
over-the-counter medication did any good whatsoever. I found that opioids don’t take pain away
but make you not care about the pain; thus you can overdose. So, being past what I considered
child-bearing age, I ended up having a partial hysterectomy which gave me new
life monthly without menopause symptoms to this day.
However, Evelyn Champagne King nearly died from
fibroids. “In 2006, I had an emergency health
crisis. I had a fibroid, which a lot of
women and girls need to keep up on. You
can have a fibroid that takes things away from you and it took my life. Literally, I had to be brought back and if it
wasn’t for my husband being with me, I wouldn’t be here to speak on it.”
The good news is that fibroids are treatable by a
medical professional and require a medical diagnosis. Lab tests or imaging is often required. Fibroids can be chronic and last for years
or a lifetime.
Some fibroids today can be treated via uterine fibroid
embolization (UFE) which is a minimally invasive procedure which also has its risks. It uses a form of real-time x-ray called
fluoroscopy to guide the delivery of embolic agents which destroy fibroid
tissue in the uterus.
