So you knew I was going to do some research. Right?
I mean yes…I know that She-Wolf had a brief appearance in the THOH XX…really brief. But, I was curious if there have ever been any Female Werewolves in the movies. Lon Cheney Jr. was truly the most memorable from my youth. But the male versions show up all of the time in horror movies…with no memorable females.
And let’s face it…the TSTO version looks pretty dated. I mean, where does she shop…1955 with June Cleaver? “Hey…She-Wolf…it’s 1955, she wants her dress back!”
But, as it turns out…there are a handful of Female Werewolf movies…and one in particular looks hilariously scary…for all of the wrong reasons.
Oh. And I’ll also cover the details of She-Wolf in our games. Promise!
So…the five that popped up were:
An American Werewolf in Paris (1997)
An American man unwittingly gets involved with French werewolves who have developed a serum allowing them to transform at will.
Ginger Snaps (2000)
Two death-obsessed sisters, outcasts in their suburban neighborhood, must deal with the tragic consequences when one of them is bitten by a deadly werewolf.
The Howling (1981)
After a bizarre and near fatal encounter with a serial killer, a television newswoman is sent to a remote mountain resort whose residents may not be what they seem.
A werewolf loose in Los Angeles changes the lives of three young adults, who, after being mauled by the beast, learn they must kill their attacker if they hope to change their fate to avoid becoming werewolves too.
Trick ‘r Treat (2007)
Five interwoven stories that occur on Halloween: An everyday high school principal has a secret life as a serial killer; a college virgin might have just met the guy for her; a group of teenagers pull a mean prank; a woman who loathes the night has to contend with her holiday-obsessed husband; and a mean old man meets his match with a demonic, supernatural trick-or-treater.
Now…I remembered almost all of these. In fact, I thought American Werewolf in Paris was great! I am also a fan of Warren Zevon’s “Werewolves of London.” Such great lyrics.
Ginger’s sister Brigitte, now a werewolf herself, must try to find a cure for her blood lust before the next full moon while hiding out in a rehab clinic from a relentless werewolf.
But I was happy to get She-Wolf. Every wolf needs a mate…and I bought the Wolfman. So…it only made sense.
She’s a full character…and the moon must always be full in Springfield…because she has no “other version” of herself.
Here are the details…

She-Wolf: I like you. You should be my health consultant!
SVT: Okay. I suggest you get some exercise and go for a good run.

She-Wolf: Anything but that! I can’t go back to having to shave my legs! I can’t!
Dr. H: My official prescription is vitamins. My unofficial is…unsuspecting victims. *chuckles*

And That’s It...the Final Prize of Act II
If you are like me…and have been tapping every 4 hours…you got her days ago….and may now have enough donuts saved up to buy her a new dress. Oh…but it was possible. Something with a little pizazz to go with her “silky hair.”
But…don’t get too close…the wolfman is jealous dude. And it’s supposed to be another full moon in Springfield.
