Best Werewolf Shows & Movies Worth Watching On the Next Full Moon

Are you up to date on your lunar calendar? There’s a full moon on June 5th, and since we’re ready to celebrate anything these days, we’ve put together the ultimate spoopy watch list celebrating all things celestial. If you recall the plight of your favorite Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, a full moon also calls werewolves to shed their bipedal forms and prowl: the Forbidden Forest; Bon Temps, Louisiana; Forks, Washington; the moors; or London, looking for victims. Without further ado, here is our ultimate full moon watch list featuring werewolves and their ilk, and where you can stream these titles online.

The Order

Netflix

This show takes place at the fictional Belgrave University, where the main character, Jack Morton played by Jake Manley, joins a secret society of dark arts in their battle against werewolves. You can stream the entire first season on Netflix, with the second season to drop sometime this year.

Red Riding Hood

Hulu

Starring actual-elven-princess Amanda Seyfried and Gary Oldman as a monster hunter. This fantasy-horror has sweeping visuals and plenty of suspense.

Wildling

Netflix

Liv Tyler plays a well-intentioned sheriff who rescues a teenage girl held captive in a remote cabin by her father. The suspenseful movie offers a fresh take on werewolf mythology.

What We Do in the Shadows

Hulu

Inspired by the mockumentary of the same name, two seasons of the FX show are streaming on Hulu. It follows four vampires who’ve spent hundreds of years together, after a visit by their dark lord to remind them of their purpose in coming to New York.

Howl

Vudu and Sling TV

This indie-horror movie hits all the right notes with characters you love to hate, loads of suspense, and jump-scares galore. The last train out of London breaks down on the tracks and the passengers soon fall victim to genuinely terrifying werewolves. Ed Speleers, of Eragon, stars as a ticket collector.

Bad Moon

Vudu

Terrible special effects paired with excessive gore. The hero of this mid-nineties treasure is a German shepherd named Thor who protects his family from a werewolf attack. It’s corny, but in a watchable popcorn-flick way.

Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant

Netflix

Starring John C. Reilly, and based upon the Vampire Blood trilogy, this teen movie combines comedy with suspense, following two teenage boys on their journey into the paranormal.

An American Werewolf in London

Hulu

A 1980s classic, which balances comedy and gore with ease, it follows an American college student after he’s attacked by a wolf in Britain.

Ginger Snaps

Sling TV

An incredibly gory indie movie that combines the horror of lycanthropy with the horror of high school. It follows two sisters, one werewolf and one dismayed onlooker.

Hemlock Grove

Netflix

With Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, Hostel) producing, this horror series takes place in small-town Pennsylvania where two high-school girls are brutally murdered and the townspeople suspect a werewolf. There’s three seasons to binge.
