Mediocre Werewolf Episode
22 August 2009 | by (Salzburg, Austria) – See all my reviews

Generally speaking, I'm a fan of the great British Hammer Studios' 13-part TV series "Hammer House of Horror" (1980). It has to be said though, that, like it is the case with most other anthology series, the episodes aren't all equally good. Though it has its qualities, this eighth entry to the series, "Children of the Full Moon" is definitely one of the weaker HHH episodes. As the title suggests, the episode is about Werewolves, and while it has atmosphere it lacks surprises and is both silly and predictable. When married couple Tom (Christopher Cazenove) and Sarah (Celia Gregory) drive through a remote forest area, their car suddenly breaks down and nearly crashes. They seek help at a nearby mansion, where they are welcomed by a suspiciously friendly lady (Diana Dors) and her eight somewhat creepy children. When suddenly being attacked by a wolf-like creature, Tom looses consciousness. He awakes in a hospital bed, and his wife claims that he was in a coma after the car crash and that he just had a bad dream. However, Sarah begins to behave suspiciously... The episode does have atmosphere, as well as some creepy moments, but, overall, it is a letdown. The premise of children werewolves is a great one, and after a truly creepy opening sequence and a nice beginning one simply expects more than the actual outcome has to offer. Still, the film is entertaining enough and worth watching for HHH fans.
