Silver bullets or fire, that’s the only ways to get rid of the Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day! It's worse than a cock-a-roach!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic!
Joe Dante’s The Howling gets under my skin. I can’t really put my finger on why… it could be as simple as the film stock or perhaps it's Rob Bottin’s genuinely creepy werewolf transformation and the horrific design of the werewolves themselves. Whatever the reason the film is very disturbing for me still to this day.
I grew up a werewolf nut. The Wolf Man was my favorite Universal monster and I loved The Howling, An American Werewolf in London… hell, I even loved Silver Bullet and the Stephen King book it was based on: Cycle of the Werewolf, so when I got this photo of Joe Dante hanging with one of his giant wolf men I put it right at the top of my priority list for this column.
The only way it could be any better is if the great Dick Miller was featured!
Here’s the pic (click for a bigger version):
If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare or the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here.
Check back tomorrow for a Behind the Scenes pic featuring a fresh fish!
