Good episode.

Werewolf: Let Us Prey starts as Eric (John J. York) continuing his search for Skorzeny seeks refuge in a isolated monastery, there Eric is offed a place to sleep for a few days. While there Eric talks with Brother Patrick who tells him of a couple of people killed from the local town that have been blamed on a wild Cougar, Eric is not so sure & ask's if he knows of a man named Janos Skorzeny at which point Brother Patrick becomes very quiet. Eric becomes convinced that Skorzeny is either there or has been there, then Brother Patrick is killed & Eric becomes sure of it. However it soon turns out that Skorzeny may not be responsible for the killings after all...

Episode ten from the first & only season of Werewolf this originally aired in the US during October 1987, directed by James Darren this is a pretty solid episode all round. The script again has Eric wander into a small town or area & come up against a Werewolf as he continues to try & find Skorzeny, here it's a monastery full of Monk's. There has been a couple of killings in the local area attributed to a wild animal of some sort & we all know that there's a Werewolf on the loose & Let Us Prey (the title is quite clever, Let Us Prey or rather Pray, get it?) becomes a sort of whodunit as Eric has to figure out which of the Monk's is in fact a Werewolf although because of the sub thirty minute duration it doesn't really have the time to set up a complicated mystery or do that much with the idea which is a shame because that might have been rather fun. This episode works well enough in what it tries to do, there's a pretty good ending too as the evil Werewolf is killed by falling on a silver crucifix. At twenty fives in length it's short & well worth a watch. Bounty hunter Rogan appears in this episode knocking on doors asking if anyone has seen Eric just like 90% of his time on the show while Skorzeny is mentioned but not seen apart from in a brief flashback.

Like the last episode Friendly Haven this one features a Werewolf on Werewolf fight although clearly the budget wasn't there to do much with the sequence. Again there's a really good atmosphere, especially the scenes set at night & one in particular where Eric talks to a Monk at night & his hood covers his bowed head & face & totally blacks it out. Never the most gory of show's there's a bit of blood but nothing graphic.

Let Us Prey is a good solid Werewolf episode featuring an evil Werewolf Monk, what more do you want? Despite the slightly rushed story which could have used a bit longer this one is well worth a watch if your a fan of the show you should definitely like it.
