Top 10 Werewolf Films

A werewolf, man-wolf, or lycanthrope is a mythological or folkloric human with the ability to shapeshift into a wolf or a hybrid wolf-like creature, either purposely or after being placed under a curse or affliction.

What are the stipulations for this list?  The film has to be solely focused on werewolves.  No vampires and werewolves, no other supernatural presence but werewolves.
