Our Werebeasts Are Different / Film

  • Black Sheep (2007) has two characters becoming weresheep after being bitten by the titular killer ovines.
  • Cat People involved people that could turn into black panthers in sexual situations.
    • The 1982 film makes them ancestrally incestuous — only sex with another werecat prevents the transformation, and if a werecat has sex with a human, the only way they can change back from their panther form is to kill a human.
  • The Hideous Sun Demon (1959) features the only other were-lizard man. This one is caused by exposure to intense radiation, but unlike lunar-controlled wear-creatures, this one transforms when he is hit by the light of the SUN.
  • Howling III: Marsupials features were-thylacines (an extinct marsupial predator more commonly known as the Tasmanian Tiger).
  • Ladyhawke features a couple of young lovers cursed to take on animal form at different times, as to keep them apart; the man turns into a wolf at night, and the lady into a... guess what.
  • In the film The Secret of Roan Inish the eponymous secret involves a selkie.
  • Track of the Moon Beast (1976) features a rare were-lizard man, and quite possibly one of the most bizarre explanations of lycanthropy ever. Apparently when the Native American spirits created humanity, they used lizard essence to give humans hands. A fragment of moon rock fallen to Earth is infused with radioactivity (despite moon rocks not containing any radioactive elements) which reacts with the leftover lizard DNA to turn the title character into a were-lizard under the light of the full moon.
  • Zootopia: The feral animals are evocative of this, especially in the scene where Judy and Nick are attacked by Manchas. However, since all the character are already animalistic in appearance, there is no transformation : the victims simply adopt a Primal Stance and a hyper-aggressive behavior. They are also associated with something (what exactly is unknown at first) called the "Night Howlers", and the story of Mr. Otterton and Manchas suggests the condition can be transmitted by claw wounds. This last one proves to be a Red Herring.
