First, considering the era this movie came out (very early '70's), there is a lot of back story to the political and social aspects of this flick. What is considered campy and silly by today's standards, must have been hard-hitting and barbs when this movie was released. Considering I was about in 3rd grade during the entire Watergate era, I found this movie to be more groan-worthy than making a political statement. I couldn't figure out if some of the dialog was supposed to be funny, poking fun or just plain ludicrous.
If you are a Dean Stockwell fan, I think you'll enjoy this otherwise, you'll just be in for a waste of time. The werewolf transformation scenes are not much better than any of the old Lon Chaney ones. I found it interesting that the political enemies where outspoken women and a black guy. Of course, there were no women represented in the close circle of the President but, such was the time.
