Werewolves are shapeshifters, but not all shapeshifters are werewolves.
Shapeshifters is a larger category with other types of transforming creatures within it. (See chart).
To show that I am an equal opportunity shifter lover, I am taking this opportunityto bring you a list of shapeshifter movies that are not werewolves as a part of the weekly phenomenon known as #WerewolfWednesday.
The Thing (1982)
Clas-sick. Really. Everyone should see this movie of a monster that can take on the shape of any living creature.
Cat People (1982)
Not to write a spoiler, but they’re people who turn into cats.
This one is different… and inspired by Native American legend.
A variation on The Thing and fairly good in its own right. Bonus points for being underwater.
Terminator 2 (1991)
What can I say? Everyone’s already seen this.
The Incredible Hulk (2008)
“You won’t like me when I’m angry.”
Some cars are better than others.
She’s a lady. And she’s a hawk.
The Beast Within (1982)
A beast is inside, but it’s not a werewolf, it’s…something else.
Jeepers Creepers (2001)
Just what is the monster in this movie? Guess we’ll never know.
I loved the twist in this movie. This was actually much better than I expected going in.
If I missed a favorite non-werewolf shapeshifter movie of yours, please feel free to add it in the comments!
