When the werewolf suits finally arrived for the shoot, they were contained in a crate marked: "20th Century Fox: Planet of the Apes". Director Philippe Mora was horrified to find he had been sent monkey suits. He quickly contacted a producer, who replied: "You're talented, you'll make it work." Mora tried to get his point across that the monkey suits were impossible to pass off as werewolves, only to have the producer hang up on him. Stuck with monkey suits, Sir Christopher Lee overheard the dilemma and came up with an idea to help make the ape looking werewolves work with the improvised line: "The process of evolution is reversed." Director Philippe Mora loved the idea and said this movie became noted by one critic for being the only werewolf movie to have the phase: man, monkey, wolf. See more »
When Christopher Lee reads from the Book of Revelation, his Bible is opened near the middle. But this book is the last book of the Bible. Visually, it probably wouldn't have looked as good if the book was opened to the end, plus balancing it in his hand with all the weight on one side would have been difficult. See more »
For it is written: the inhabitants of the Earth have been made drunk with her blood. And I saw her sent upon a hairy beast and she held forth a golden chalice full of the filthiness of fornications. And upon her forehead was written: "Behold I am the great mother of harlots and all abominations of the Earth."

This is incredibly awful B-grade stuff and I wondered how it even got released. It makes the original 'Howling' look like a masterpiece. What was Christopher Lee thinking, as this has to be his worst performance I've seen.
There was a lot wrong with this real cheap-ass film, ranging from the really hammy and wooden performances from Annie McEnroe, Reb Brown, Marsha A. Hunt and Sybil Danning (not to forgot Lee), cheesy fashion (those sunnies), cheap and lame special effects, bad use of lighting, the humour... if there was any, trashy 80s music (with some of the film just focusing on some unknown band playing), werewolf's having orgies which is a sight to see and a tiresome story with flat and annoying dialogue. I thought if it was that bad it would be awfully funny, but I was wrong.
The positives were the location and settings of the film looked great, but that's about it... actually I'll add Sybil Danning short stripping scene too.
During the end credits the band plays their crap-house song during a weird montage of scenes from the film, which I beckon the question why?
An awful piece of mess, however at least it isn't boring.
