Storyline

Mrs. Ardoy is the caretaker of a creepy old house set in the heart of the forest, who takes in a stranded young couple with car trouble. Once tucked in for the night, the pair begin to experience mutual dreams about a pack of werewolves roaming the region by night. The dreams, of course, are not entirely what they seem... and for that matter, neither is their hostess. Written by Ørnås

One of the best Hammer House of Horror episodes
18 February 2015 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

A young newly-wed couple with car trouble wind up at a creepy old house in a forest. It is inhabited by a woman and a large group of odd children. In the night, the couple experience strange dreams of werewolves…

'Children of the Full Moon' is instalment eight in the Hammer House of Horror TV series and is very possibly the scariest episode of them all. For my money it ties alongside 'Rude Awakening' and 'The Silent Scream' as being the best the series has to offer. Like a few other entries did, this one ticks a specific horror box, in this case werewolves. In some respects, this one is closer to the kind of output Hammer feature films tackled, in that it has more of a Gothic horror feel to it. It's the atmosphere that really gives this one plus points. The setting in the woods and the odd inhabitants of the house are really quite effectively sinister. All-in-all, this is a very decent entry in the werewolf sub-genre.
