Extremely rare work of Robert Wiene. From the director and year of excellent "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" this work was eventually overshadowed by the success of Caligari. It has a dreamy atmosphere, like another world or something.
Hans Heinrich von Twardowski,
In the Canadian wilderness, a logger is injured and near death when a doctor gives him a blood transfusion from a wolf. The man eventually lives but soon he begins to fear he's turning into a wolf. Well, I guess Werewolf of London wasn't the first "werewolf" movie. There aren't any transformation scenes here but it's very clear to see that the final fifteen minutes of this influenced the screenplay of The Wolf Man. The film runs a quick 68-minutes but the wolf action really doesn't start until the very end. Up until that point, we've got a pretty over-dramatic love story that doesn't work at all. None of the actors are that interesting and the technical style looks like 1910 and not what we'd expect from 1925. Those interested in the wolf aspect might want to check it out for a historical purpose but others stay clear.
