Watergate-era governmental corruption inspired this cinematic howl of anger from counter-culture auteur Milton Moses Ginsberg (Coming Apart). THE WEREWOLF OF WASHINGTON is a biting satire that savagely attacks beltway politics while paying playful homage to the wolfman pictures of the past. Dean Stockwell (Blue Velvet) stars as a presidential aide whose rise to power is exacerbated by the bite of a wolf, transforming him into a bloodthirsty beast with the rising of every full moon. As history has shown, a monster in the White House is not strictly a 1970s phenomenon, and so, half a century later, THE WEREWOLF OF WASHINGTON is as eviscerating and relevant as ever. This special Director’s Cut was prepared by Ginsberg shortly before his death in 2021.
