'Even the man who is pure of heart, and says his prayers by night, may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms and the moon is full and bright.'
The last of Universal Pictures' truly great monster movies, which introduced a new movie monster and redefined the mythology of the werewolf, sees Lon Chaney play the cursed man who is bitten by a werewolf on his return to Wales and subsequently becomes one himself when the moon is full. Mid-Wales rather resembles Transylvania, but this is bloodcurdling high tragedy, complemented by a dreamlike atmosphere, elaborate settings and chilling musical score. Stock up now on silver bullets.

Universal lavished time and money on this one, and were rewarded with a huge box office hit which really got their second cycle of horror films going. Rightly so, because it is a real classic, with Lon Chaney Jnr giving a fine performance as the unfortunate Larry Talbot. His lupine alter-ego may be less than terrifying, but the film otherwise has a nicely spooky atmosphere, with lashings of Hollywood-style English fog. The writer Curt Siodmak, drew on his own experiences as a Jew in Germany persecuted by the Nazis, and (like Chaneys character) doomed through no fault of his own. It is a fatalism which Hollywood only really expressed in horror films like these, and yet they still remain critically undervalued. This one at least deserves more respect. Hide
