Wilbur Gray, a horror writer, has stumbled upon a terrible secret, that cats are supernatural creatures who really call the shots. In a desperate attempt to get others to believe him, Wilbur spews three tales of feline horror.
Tom Newcliffe, a rich businessman and expert hunter summons six guests to his huge country estate which he has rigged up with video cameras and a high-tech security system. He tells them and his surprised wife that they are all to stay over a weekend and that all of them will be kept on the estate during that weekend. For each guest, dead bodies have followed in their wake and the way that the dead have been murdered means that one of the guest is a werewolf and Tom has summoned his guests here to discover who it is and to hunt it down... The film has a clip at the beginning asking people in the audience to try to identify the werewolf and near the end there is a 30-second "Werewolf Break" for the audience to think over the evidence...Written by

Tom Newcliffe invites several people to his estate because he is convinced one of them is a werewolf and intends to identify and hunt the one who is. After dinner the first evening, he explains this to the gathered people. Newcliffe goes from one guest to the next, explaining how he suspects each of being a werewolf. However, he does NOT indicate that he has conclusively (or at least to his satisfaction) confirmed the existence of one werewolf and determined that its normal human form must be one of his invitees, but instead outlines evidence that each person, independently of the others, might be a werewolf. Given the existence of such creatures, Newcliffe has presented a situation in which anywhere from none to all of his special guests might be werewolves rather than one, no more and no less.

[At the beginning of the film, with narration] This film is a detective story--in which you are the detective The question is not "Who is the murderer?"--But "Who is the werewolf?" After all the clues have been shown--You will get a chance to give your answer. (Said but not written on screen, directly after above quote: Watch for the werewolf break). See more »
Had the potential to be better, but still interesting.
This low-budget horror film had an innovative concept, mixing rather successfully a traditional Agatha Christie-type murder mystery with a "gory" werewolf flick; the result does hold your attention but is marred by wooden acting (except for the excellent Peter Cushing) and a few overextended chase scenes. As another reviewer noted, no real clues are given to us to help us figure out the identity of the werewolf, so it's strictly a matter a guessing, but there is some fun in the game... (**1/2)
