  1. Hi. I’ve been searching endlessly for certain movies that are just mere memories now. I found this website, unsure how long it’s been out there, and got that sense of familiarity. But still, I’m at a loss. I thought, maybe, you may know more where my knowledge trails off. I’m quite sure it’s a werewolf movie. If this gets to you, and you felt compelled to open it, I thank you for reading. Till response
