Selected by Quentin Tarantino for the First Quentin Tarantino Film Fest in Austin, TX, in 1996. He had actually never seen the picture before he screened it. He loved it so much that all subsequent Quentin Tarantino Film Fests had a surprise movie added to the end of each all-nighter known as the "Wolf Woman" selection, defined as an outrageous exploitation film sure to wake the audience up. "Wolf Women" selections over the years have included The Blood Spattered Bride (1972) and The Mighty Peking Man (1977). See more »
Shriek Show's DVD release under the title "Werewolf Woman" is the uncut version, although an incorrect widescreen transfer results in the loss of some picture information on all sides of the screen, including some nudity. See more »
This is quite a graphically violent and explicit film. It's much more graphic than I expected. It's not really a werewolf movie. There are violent attacks where throats are ripped out, but it doesn't really have the supernatural element we might expect. This is a case study of a woman who has been so badly abused that she loses her sense of self and strikes out against all men. Even when things begin to go well, it's as if she has been singled out for some kind of demonic punishment. Unfortunately, many others suffer her wrath, some deserving, others not. The scenes are pretty explicit and ugly. This is one of those movies that kind of grabs you but it's more like going to an auto wreck than something desirable. It's not badly made and moves pretty well. Be forewarned, however, that it isn't for all tastes.
