1987 Werewolf - All Hallow's Eve

Werewolf was one of the original shows created for the FOX network in the 1987-1988 season. It's about the adventures of a young man, Eric Cord, who is inflicted with the werewolf curse after he is bitten by his friend Teddy who is a werewolf. To rid himself of his curse, Eric must find and kill the apparent originator of his "bloodline," a drifter named Janos Skorzeny, all while being chased by a persistent bounty hunter called "Alamo" Joe Rogan.

A two-hour pilot, which is better than most big budget werewolf movies, and 28 half-hour episodes were created before the show was cancelled in 1988. The show featured great real make up and special effects (not fake CGI) by monster master, Rick Baker. The complete series was to be released on DVD in 2009 but was canceled when an agreement could not be reached with the artists for the rights of the songs used in the series.

The Halloween episode takes place on All Hallow's Eve, Eric finds an abandoned house to lock himself up in on the night of a another change, not realizing that a disfigured man with a sad backstory lives/hides in the old house because of his appearance.
