Supernatural: THE WEREWOLF REUNION {TV} (Simon Langton, 1977) ***
2 May 2014 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

In my last Halloween marathon, I had unwittingly watched what proved only the first half of a two-part episode in the British TV horror series SUPERNATURAL; at the time, I knew these would soon be officially released on DVD – but it took me this long to catch up with the remaining narrative (which, as it happened, came hot on the heels of a handful of entries from the similar GHOST STORY aka CIRCLE OF FEAR {1972-3})! While there was a recap with respect to "Countess Ilona" at the start of its continuation here, I still pretty much recalled what had gone on before anyway: while two of the male protagonists (gourmet arms dealer Ian Hendry and erotomane doctor Charles Kay) are featured in both parts, musical virtuoso John Fraser only appears in the first, whereas ruthless politician Edward Hardwicke only turns up in the latter section. Still, all four fall victim to the titular monster – which rather renders the whole repetitive, and it is doubly disappointing because the werewolf is never actually seen (apart from a flickering shadow at the very end, his movements being otherwise depicted via POV shots accompanied by heavy breathing), no doubt on account of the limited resources at its makers' disposal! Still, the high level of acting involved (including, of course, leading lady Billie Whitelaw), the irresistible Hammer-like period style, and the engaging Mystery approach to its central theme ensures another 50 minutes of solid chills and overall good fun. Typically, one final twist is reserved for the framework story set inside an elite upper-class society: it is suggested that the man (Sandor Eles) recounting the violent and eerie goings-on of many years previously may well be not only Whitelaw's grown-up son – with, as a tell-tale sign, their shared predilection for candied fruit – but also the by-now dead lycanthrope's own offspring…
