My Mom's a Werewolf is a 1989 comedy/horror film directed by Michael Fischa. Leslie (Susan Blakely), an overworked suburban housewife who is ignored by her family, goes to the local pet store to get a flea collar for the family dog. While she is there, she meets the strange pet shop owner, Harry Thropen (John Saxon), who asks her to go out to lunch. Their date ends with a secret tryst in bed, during which Harry playfully nips Leslie's toe. When Leslie returns home, she begins growing fangs, sprouting excess body hair and craving raw meat. She tries to hide all the strange changes from her family, but her daughter, Jennifer (Katrina Caspary), suspects that her mother is turning into a werewolf. With help from her best friend Stacey (Diana Barrows), who loves horror magazines, and Madame Gypsy (Ruth Buzzi), Jennifer must try to stop her mother's transformation before her time runs out.
