Legend of the Werewolf (1975)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

A baby is born and eventually raised by wolves. As an adult he turns into a werewolf and Peter Cushing is called in to investigate. I found this film incredibly poor even though it was director by Freddie Francis who usually turns in something entertaining. The entire supporting cast is pretty boring and Cushing really doesn't add too much life either. The "werewolf vision" red tint running throughout the film doesn't work very well but when the werewolf is finally revealed his makeup is quite nice. They could have done a lot more with this film but in the end it comes off rather lazy.
