Wolfman, The Review


An eight minute abridgment of the 1941 feature, The Wolf Man, released in the 1960's to the 16mm home movie market.

This movie represents Universal Horror at its finest. This movie has the perfect formula. Short, Simple, and Scary. The good acting doesn’t hurt either. This black and white beauty gives us spooky foggy woods, as well as those classic scenes of Chaney transforming into the horrible werewolf. That scene is still amazing today, nearly half a century later, when advance computerized special effects adorn nearly every production. Not surprisingly, gore and sex are absent. But every ingredient needed to make an enjoyable and entertaining horror movie is present! A good story, fine acting, spooky scenes, and a good scare! Don’t miss this classic if you’re a horror fan.
