|Movie-Related or Fan Websites:|
Wendigo - Official site. This recent movie is about the wendigo or windigo of Native American lore, a half-beast, half-human cannibal spirit that sometimes functions as a guardian of the wilderness. Frankly, I think it's an underappreciated monster and deserves to have more movies made about it.

The Undying Monster - a web site about this old 1940's horror film, not quite a classic but certainly part of the early werewolf mystique.
The Paul Naschy Website - Paul Naschy is a Spanish actor/writer/director who probably qualifies as the Lon Chaney Jr. of the Spanish-speaking world. He has starred as a werewolf in at least 13 movies, many of which he also wrote, and a few that he directed himself. He has quite a cult following, some of them are people that genuinely like his movies, while others merely like to watch bad movies for the shock value.
I was a Teenage Werewolf - a classic teen film from the black-and-white era. Spawned many imitators, including at least one successful one (Teen Wolf of the 1980's).
Werewolf Movies at Grey Coyote's Website
Animal Transformation - A HUGE archive of werewolf transformation scenes (plus other shapeshifters) from movies and TV shows, mostly animated ones.
Werewolves in the Media (movies and TV shows)
Big Wolf on Campus - a television series aimed at junior high students. I used to enjoy it in the early days, before the plots got too outlandish and it began imitating Mighty Morphing Power Rangers.

Werewolf Central - art, fiction and reviews
The Werewolf Cafe - open only on the full moon.
Lobo Leo - high-quality art, includes realistic transformations, cartoonish transformations, the comic Alpha Luna, photo-morphs and other projects. Most of it is high in quality and was obviously the result of a lot of hard work. There is some nudity.
Dark Natasha's Werewolf Gallery - contains only one offensive picture (a nude). Most of it has a dark, creepy quality to it.
The photorealistic transformation artwork of Daniel Lee - mostly concentrates on facial portraits
Animal Transformation Archive
The Transformation Picture Archive
Kyoht - really cute and innocent werewolf art, plus cartoonish canines and wildlife art
The Werewolf! - art by Jeff Lewis. Really high-quality stuff: lots of werewolves, plus fantasy animals, strange creatures and even some landscapes, ordinary humans and sci-fi. Some minor nudity, mostly male.
Goldenwolf's Art - some of the most popular online werewolf art. Even though it has a lot of nudity, it is of the very clean, fur-covered kind. Only prudes would be offended.
Monstrous.com's Werewolf Gallery - fantasy artwork, much of it lifted from various sources without a proper copyright credit. Only one offensive picture (nudity).
Anime Transformation Archive - transformations drawn in the anime style of art (like that found in Japanese animation). Much nudity.
Kemono Inukai - includes lots of werewolves and all kinds of human/animal creatures. Be warned that it has some of the grossest werewolf art I've ever seen, some of it photorealistic (I almost puked the first time I visited this web site). It also has some nudity, but the focus is on the gore.
Werewolves in Suburbia - one of the oldest and largest multi-artist collections of werewolf art. Be warned that there is much nudity and some sex, even though it is not supposed to be a porn site; many of the individual artists have only clean stuff.
