He confides his secret to his best friend Merton Dingle, a goth teenager with a passion for the supernatural. Both then see themselves fighting the most abominable creatures on their campus. A kind of buffy the vampire slayer in a little less well scripted. The special effects and costumes are quite mediocre, which however did not prevent The Campus Werewolf to be part of the most cult teen series of the time.
