Dr Alfred Brandon:
I'm going to TRANSFORM him, and unleash the savage instincts that lie hidden within... and then I'll be judged the benefactor. Mankind is on the verge of destroying itself.

Gene Fowler Jr. directed this famous hybrid of horror and juvenile delinquency that stars a young Michael Landon as troubled teenager Tony Rivers, who is ordered to undergo therapy to control his anger issues(he gets in a lot of fights at high school) Unfortunately, his doctor(played by Whit Bissell) is quite unscrupulous, using Tony in his hypno-regression therapy that causes him to become a murderous werewolf! Barney Philips plays the investigating detective looking into the murders. While by no stretch a good film, Michael Landon gives a sympathetic performance, and there is some effectively tense direction and good makeup, though this never quite manages to rise above its silly title. Not yet on DVD either, which is a shame.
