A frustrated and talentless artist finds acclaim for a plaster covered dead cat that is mistaken as a skillful statuette. Soon the desire for more praise leads to an increasingly deadly series of works.
The new science teacher Dr. Julian Olcott with a mysterious past arrives in an institutional boarding school for troublemaker girls. Along the night, the intern Mary Smith, who is blackmailing another teacher - Sir Alfred Whiteman - with some love letters, is slaughtered by a werewolf. The detective in charge of the investigation attributes the crime to a wolf, while her mate Priscilla believes she was killed by Sir Alfred. On the next days, other deaths happen in the school, reducing the list of suspects. Written by

It has been over 40 yrs. since i first saw this film. There were a few things i had remembered about the film, however, most i had forgotten. This is a black and white film made in 1961. I was about 16 when i first saw it and thought it was pretty neat. That is because i thought that Barbara Lass was cute so naturally, i liked the film. Now, over 40 yrs. later i have it on DVD. Barbara Lass is still cute, but the film lost a lot since i first saw it. The story is easy to follow and figure out. The werewolf doesn't have much hair but passes as OK. The actor, Curt Lowens, did a descent job. The suspense is alright and overall you should find this film mildly enjoyable. Get you're sweetie and you're popcorn ready. Enjoy. John R. Tracy.
