While on a botanical expedition in Tibet Dr. Wilfred Glendon is attacked in the dark by a strange animal. Returning to London, he finds himself turning nightly into a werewolf and terrorizing the city, with the only hope for curing his affliction a rare Asian flower.

Well what a film to end Furry February. The film that inspired Warren Zevon's hit song of the same name. You know you just went Aaaaa-ooooo in your head..And according to film historian's Jack Pierce's eerie werewolf make-up was simpler than his version six years later for Lon Chaney, Jr., in The Wolf Man. This was also the first mainstream werewolf movie.

  1. I am so looking forward to watching this movie! I've heard good things about it and like you, I can't help thinking about it when I hear the Werewolves of London song. I like how the monster movies made during the 1930s had serious dramatic actors!
