This School For Wayward Girls Has A Werewolf in the vicinity
13 June 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Unless your taste runs to blood and gore I wouldn't get too exciting over the titillating title Werewolf In A Girl's Dormitory. Even though this is a special school for girls with behavioral problems they're all quite respectably clothed. There isn't even that much blood in the film although the usual screaming quotient is there.

This film also illustrates the fickleness of careers even in one family. Around a time when Maximilian Schell got a Best Actor Oscar for Judgment At Nuremberg and sister Maria Schell was doing things like the big budget remake of Cimarron, brother Carl was busy doing Werewolf In A Girl's Dormitory.

He's a new faculty member who actually is experimenting in lycanthropy when bodies start popping up around the school. Naturally suspicion falls on him.

All kind of dumb, only for the most addicted horror and gore fan.
