Wolfen belongs to a special, exclusive subgenre which I will call "werewolf procedural". Albert Finney and Gregory Hines (!) play a detective and a medical examiner who have teamed up to investigate a series of unusual murders in New York. They're assisted by a non-bald Tom Noonan, and Diane Venora (who you may recognize from Heat). Edward James Olmos plays a Native American "on the steel", who occasionally removes all of his clothes, and may or may not be the creature that they are hunting. I had pretty much no idea what was going to happen next as I watched this film for the first time...
