This was a good creepy movie that I would give a high rating. One drawback was the unnecessary second rate humour which could have detracted from what was a fine example of this particular genre Why some of these old horror films are`nt shown more often is a puzzle to me. Maybe there is`nt enough blood, gore, sex and profanity because it seems that the ingredients for a successful movie are these sickening items. The film concerns a curse which dogs the members of the Hammond family. The film is set in a manor in some remote area of England, ( the set used in the Basil Rathbone version of the Hound of the Baskervilles seems familiar) plenty of fog and eerie sounds help to create the usual creepy atmosphere. The plot is predictable but is
enough to keep viewers more than interested. The werewolf, the central character, is rarely seen, however this gives the film a greater accent to the mysterious aspects of it. It is well worth watching I`m sure you will enjoy it even though it is a hackneyed theme.
