** And, of course, as noted above, Sybil Danning tearing her top off is repeated about 20 times during the closing credits of ''II'' (reportedly, Danning was mortified by this).

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Eddie Quist]], dubbed “Eddie The Mangler” by the press, is a particularly {{sadist}}ic [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolf]] who [[SavageWolves terrorizes the city of Los Angeles]] as a {{serial killer}} and {{serial rapist}}. Unlike the other werewolves in the colony he hails from, who are perfectly fine if left alone, [[TheSociopath Eddie]] actively hunts and kills people [[ForTheEvulz for his sadistic pleasure]]. In his introduction, Eddie meets with investigation reporter Karen and shows her a video of him raping a woman, revealing he had killed her, before attempting to do the same to Karen. After being seemingly killed by police, Karen's friend Chris and his girlfriend Terry do some investigation on Eddie and his connection to the colony Karen and her husband are sent to. As Terry uncovers the truth, [[BackFromTheDead Eddie]] viciously murders her. Upon his return to the colony, Eddie tries to intimidate and kill Karen once again, and when he confronts Chris, he plays a recording of Terry's murder to him, commenting on her "sexy voice." Eddie, planning to transform and kill Chris, spends his last moments goading Chris into [[ImmuneToBullets shooting him]] ([[TemptingFate not realizing]] Chris has {{silver bullet}}s).

* BestKnownForTheFanservice: For some, Elisabeth Brook's full-frontal nude scene was the most memorable thing about the film.



* EveryoneRemembersTheStripper: For some, Elisabeth Brook's full-frontal nude scene was the most memorable thing about the film.



* SpecialEffectsFailure: Applies to most of the sequels, to varying extents. ''III'' has especially awful effects, with no real transformations to speak of, barely any gore and really bad werewolf prosthetics (all the more shocking considering that the effects come from acclaimed Aussie makeup artist [[Film/BodyMelt Bob]] [[Film/BrainDead McCarron]]). ''New Moon Rising'' manages to be even worse, with its werewolf being realized via a cheap mask and some lame CG morphing effects.

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Rob Bottin's effects in the original still stand out as some of the best werewolf transformations of all time. Among the sequels, ''VI'' has easily the best effects after the original, though ''IV'' has surprisingly decent effects too (albeit only in the last ten minutes), considering the obviously extremely low budget of the film.
