Movie Details

An avowed enemy of wildlife in general and wolves in particular, Claire McNichol (Anne Archer) heavily arms herself before venturing into the woods of Northern California. Injured in a fall, Claire finds herself face to face with another wounded creature -- a huge, snarling timber wolf. Ultimately, Claire and the beast must spiritually bond in order to assure their mutual survival. Made for television, Night of the Wolf costars Robert Urich in his final role as ranch foreman Purly Owens. The film debuted over the Animal Planet cable network on April 15, 2002, one day before Urich's death. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
