Based on a Short Story
21 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

According to Stephen Jones in his anthology *The Mammoth Book of Wolf Men* (page xii), this "Canadian two-reeler" film was loosely based on Henry Beaugrand's story "The Werewolves" (1898). Incidentally, Jones goes on to say that the silent French film Le Loup-Garou (1923) was also based on this same Beaugrand short story. The story then clearly captured the imaginations of people of this era.

Here is a link, if you're interested, to the short story: http://gaslight.mtroyal.ca/werwolvs.htm

I was surprised by just how short this short story actually is. Also, other than the fact that both the plot of this lost film and the plot of the short story both involves Indians, there does not appear to be that much of a direct resemblance between the two stories.
