they used effects from 1941!
5 April 2011 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

This flick was made for television and is only available in the US on ex-rental VHS. It was made just before the new rise of the horrors. But this really is a turkey. You really must see the special effects used. It's about a man being cursed by some inmates when he is on holiday. Soon he realizes that he's a werewolf. He hunts his preys on the resort he is staying but I must say, where is the blood. I haven't ween one drip of the red stuff in this flick. There are even shootings and people get hurt but no sign of blood. The best part are the last few seconds when we have a close-up of the face of the werewolf. The werewolf itself looks ridicuulous. The effects used are just done with some cheap editing. It reminded me of The Wolfman of 1941 were they used the same effect. But overall it's more about a love story between a woman and the so called werewolf. The cover of the VHS looks amazing, if that was included in this flick, well, it surely would be a classic. No sign of those hands or even of the naked girl. It also reminded me of Paul Naschy's performances as a werewolf. But the reason why some people track it down is for Joe Perry, here in one of his first full features just before becoming famous in Jake And The Fatman. Rare feature that must be seen to believe.
