Daughter of legendary Gypsy werewolf kills to keep the family secret
18 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

I really liked this film as a kid and it's still fun to watch as a grownup.The idea of a female werewolf was a totally different horror concept in 1944 and Nina Foch was quite effective in her portrayal of the character. This movie boasts one of the most solid casts of any horror film of the 1940's with talented actors such as the wonderful Blanche Yurka, John Abbott, Fritz Leiber, Barton MacLane, and the delightfully ghoulish Milton Parson uplifting the proceedings. Osa Massen is eye catching if not a bit overwrought as the damsel in distress. The whole thing is shot down by Stephen Crane's inept attempt to play the leading man. He defines the cliché of the bland, boring, and ineffectual pretty boy and his performance is amateurish. Screenwriter Griffin Jay was a craftsman and quite dependable at providing screenplays for these hour long chillers and his script is economical with no frills. Director Henry Levin was an old pro at mysteries, drama, and adventure films but this was his only foray into the horror genre and he filmed it as more of a mystery and suspense piece the a true horror film. The special effects are minimal and were created more by the editor then the make up or camera crews.

During WWII, the Hollywood Studio's were cranking out movies at a factory assembly line pace. Most films were produced with an eye towards keeping on schedule and within budget. The also kept the studio film makers busy and earning their paychecks. If they turned out to be well done, so much the better.Cry of the Werewolf was a film that was intended to be a neighborhood theater crowd pleaser that would be released and spend a few weeks making the rounds and move on.It's not a great film but it's a fun one to watch.
