A Second Thought
13 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
