Good flick!
25 June 2004 | by Movie NuttballSee all my reviews

Werewolf in a Girls' Dormitory is one of those old drive in type movies which is actually a pretty good film. They acting is good by the cast but it seems like all of them were dubbed. This is a very unusual movie and the werewolf is different looking which he actually resembles the Werewolf of London of the Universal Monsters. Its amazing how some of the characters looked in the film. One actor had a bleach blonde hair style, another actor looked and acted like Walt Disney, the lead actress resembled Kim Cattrall, and the care taker looked like a ghoul without trying to be! Its just something I noticed. This film isn't bad at all. This is part of a double feature which the other on the tape is called Blood Creature which is also a good oldie! For horror and werewolf fans don't miss this one!
