Every generation has its werewolves. Today, of course, there’s the Twilight phenomenon, which has given us Jacob Black and his brotherly pack of lycanthropes. If you’re my age, you grew up watching the incredibly hokey Teen Wolf and Teen Wolf Two movies, plus the slightly less hokey An American Werewolf in London. And if you’re a bit older, you likely went to the local Strand Theater to watch Lon Chaney and Claude Rains in The Wolf Man or Little House on the Prairie star Michael Landon in I Was a Teenage Werewolf.
But, as you’ll see in the news clip below from KENS5 in San Antonio, there’s a group of Texas teens who are taking the obsession with wolfmen one step further, transforming themselves into real-life werewolves – complete with fake tails and teeth.
So what do you think, moms and dads: Is this type of self-expression a good thing, or a sure sign that these kids need to spend less time under the full moon?
