The Werewolf of Washington (1973)

How bad is it? It fails as both horror and satire.
Should you see it? It's weird, but it's too dull for me to say yes.

Made roughly at the same time as the Watergate scandal, this political satire has had too much read into it by some. The president's press secretary, played by Dean Stockwell, becomes a werewolf and at one point bites the president. Meanwhile, Michael Dunn plays a doctor with a secret lab to make monsters in the White House. The best joke may be the confusion of "pentagram" for "Pentagon."
