There are myriad monsters that march into the pale moonlight around the special time of Halloween. Ghosts, witches, and vampires parade out in all their ghoulish glory to face off against one of the oldest and best loved beasts, werewolves.

These bloodthirsty creatures roaming the barren moors have been a vital part of our folklore and mythology for centuries and are instinctively lodged in our minds, whether depicted in comics, novels, video games, or Hollywood features.

Tinseltown has given us decades of dreamy and dreadful werewolf films, but SYFY WIRE has condensed it down to a hairy handful in this latest 7 Essentials video. From the oft-forgotten 1935 black-and-white classic Werewolf of London and Benicio del Toro's ferocious The Wolfman remake to John Landis' twisted modern take in An American Werewolf in London, there's something here to satisfy every ravenous appetite.

Check out all seven bite-worthy entries below, then tell us which ones transformed you upon first viewing in the comment section!
