Upon the death of his brother, Larry Talbot returns from America to his ancestral home in Wales. He visits a gypsy camp with village girl Jenny Williams, who is attacked by Bela, a gypsy who has turned into a werewolf. Larry kills the werewolf but is bitten during the fight. Bela's mother tells him that this will cause him to become a werewolf at each full moon. Larry confesses his plight to his unbelieving father, Sir John, who then joins the villagers in a hunt for the wolf. Larry, transformed by the full moon, heads for the forest and a fateful meeting with both Sir John and Gwen.

This is the first Universal picture since The Black Cat (last weeks feature) to introduce the major characters during the opening credits - and the actors playing them - with brief clips from the movie.

Welcome to Furry February as Sven has set up a month of themed movies for us. So how do you feel about themes? Sven has asked us the fans so make sure to stop by his blog and let him know. www.svengoolie.com 

Missing tonight will be the mail segment "Due to my abscence from work while I recuperate from the double bypass,and a lack of suitable re-usable material, we had to forgo adding a mail segment to this show. Never fear- Kerwyn will return." said Svengoolie today in his blog.

Its always great to hear Rich is on the road to recovery and I know we are all patiently waiting for his return. In the mean time make sure you head over to Terror Beyond The Dave's web site for great article on ACME Designs and Sven's new Coffin.

Here is a little Wolf Man history from the man him self.
