Trivia

Selected by Quentin Tarantino for the First Quentin Tarantino Film Fest in Austin, Texas, 1996. Tarantino 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 »

Alternate Versions

Although the UK cinema version was cut the pre-cert video release (on the Cinehollywood label) was uncut and was listed on Greater Manchester Police's list of films subject to seizure during the video nasty scare of the 1980s. It was eventually released on video (as "Naked Werewolf Woman") in 1986 with heavy pre-cuts to the rape scene and 42 secs of additional BBFC cuts to remove shots of a naked woman's stitched body on a mortician's slab.

"Intelligent" bad movie?
14 February 2007 | by emguySee all my reviews

I started watching this movie expecting some barely tolerable Hammer horror film wannabe... and I wasn't far off. There's a fair amount of glimpsed gore, and they threw in lots of nudity, but the latter half of the movie presents a few ironic twists. Holy cow, they actually put a little thought into the story, and didn't completely fall into the predictable stuff one expected at the outset. And dare I say it, some of the "gratuitous" nudity wasn't so gratuitous after all, because it fit in with the story and setting.

Don't get me wrong, it's still overall a bad movie, but as bad movies go, it's a shade more intelligent than the REALLY horrible tripe like Mesa of Lost Women and Robot Monster.
