I saw this film, presumably in 1980, at the British seaside resort of Great Yarmouth, whilst on an idyllic camping holiday based at Lowestoft. What attracted me (and my lady friend at the time) to the cinema was not this magical little short but the fact that it was showing with the current screwball hit comedy, Airplane. I had no knowledge of Cry Wolf at all. The cinema was just about full to capacity, and on came the short B film. The cast is made up of lots of familiar names to British film and TV fans, but nothing could have prepared me for this little treat. The script is deliberately (I assume) as corny as possible with lots of obvious and overplayed comical nods to the old Universal horror classics, - and it's in traditional black and white. This is one weird short, great fun, and I'd love to see it again. One more thing, when the film finished, the audience burst out in spontaneous, loud applause!
