A good year for werewolves
30 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In what was considered a revival for werewolves, 1981 boasted a few legendary movies about the creatures, namely The Howling, An American Werewolf in London, and Wolfen, which was more about the wolf as a killer animal only. I don't know if the writers of this show jumped on the werewolf bandwagon, but only The Howling came out before this episode aired, so there's that. The werewolf here is played solidly by David Hedison(David Tabori), although the beast was unfortunately more "hairy man" than mean animal, so the scare factor didn't do it for me, but I did enjoy this segment better than the other one, which I'll mention shortly. Look for Carol Lynley(Elizabeth Tabori), although it seems like she's on every other episode, playing David's wife, but she's decent enough and not as annoying. Even though I thought it could've been scarier, I felt it was solidly written, add in a couple shots of a full moon and a few howls, and it makes for a pretty good story. The other segment stars Jimmy Dean, Wendy Schall, who stars in many more episodes, and Anne Francis, and while this wasn't a particularly memorable story, it wasn't terrible. I found it interesting that Tattoo had no time in this episode, other the beginning and the ending, but that's no great loss anyway.
