      Sean C Solid B movie. Good acting 👍 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/24/24 Full Review Ivan A It made me cry!!!! The cinematography is more than acceptable, and quite nice acting. It's funny that the werewolf is always in a suit and even takes care on putting his socks back. And the ending is heartless. But nevertheless, it is damned good entertainment.. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/11/23 Full Review Blobbo X Watchable on lazy Sunday afternoon if there's nothing else on. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/09/23 Full Review Audience Member I liked it, not a typical "full moon, silver bullet" type wolfman. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member A simple, yet above average old B&W movie from 1956 with another werewolf theme. No hokiness, no intelligence insulting routine predictability. This is a tale movingly and sympathetically told, and played by Steven Ritch as the werewolf. The characters are shown as being rarely understanding of the poor man's problem and they want to help. The poor werewolf is even shown having a wife and young son. Although the ending is on the somewhat routine side, I still think of an alternate ending: the man's son seems like a normal and routine little kid - "WOW, Dad's the coolest!" he could've said. And since Steven Ritch HAS managed to win audience sympathy...he could have jumped on that tractor that was coming at him, and chewed Farmer Brown's ass. Then, take control of that tractor, aim it at the armed mob coming for him, ram as many as possible, then jump off and chew THEY'RE ass! Then go into town with his admiring son, chew the rest of 'em's ass. THAT would have been a preferable, exciting ending, but - it was 1956 that it was made, so what are ya gonna do??? This film is HIGHLY worth watching, due to the care and finesse shown in the making of it. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Good-looking but pointless co-feature is awfully familiar stuff--50's Grade-B Thriller!!
