Storyline

Lawrence Talbot's childhood ended the night his mother died. His father sent him from the sleepy Victorian hamlet of Blackmoor to an insane asylum, then he goes to America. When his brother's fiancée, Gwen Conliffe, tracks him down to help find her missing love, Talbot returns to his father's estate to learn that his brother's mauled body has been found. Reunited with his estranged father, Lawrence sets out to find his brother's killer... and discovers a horrifying destiny for himself. Someone or something with brute strength and insatiable blood lust has been killing the villagers, and a suspicious Scotland Yard inspector named Aberline comes to investigate. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

[Aberline sits down at a table in the pub and opens a newspaper. Mrs. Kirk walks up to him]
Det. Aberline: A pint of bitter, please.
[She only stares at him. He looks up from his paper, stares back, and tips his hat towards her]
Det. Aberline: Mrs. Kirk.
Mrs. Kirk: Why aren't you out with MacQueen, trying to catch that thing what killed my husband?
Det. Aberline: As I don't know where the lunatic will strike, it seems the practical thing to do is to stay as near as possible to the potential victims.

Delivers what it promises in a classical way
16 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can not see how this movie got horrible reviews from critics... it is a good movie, but more of a classical monster movie than an action blockbuster.

So if you are a fan of the classical wolf man story and presentation, then this is right up your ally. There is enough gore, blood, and howling at the moon to go around.

The storyline is predictable for the most part; though there is a understory that is reveled as the movie progresses. Still, even though you know where the movie is going, it is not a bad experience.

Enjoy
