Simon T Redeemed only by moody lighting and a short running time, this werewolf movie borrows heavily from Cat People and the Universal Wolfman series, with its gypsy clan and bloodline themes. The major differences are that the werewolf here is female, and there's no transformation, just a jump-cut to a rather nice looking alsatian. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Cast:Nina Foch, Stephen Crane, Osa Massen Director:Henry Levin Writers:Griffin Jay, Charles O'Neal Producer:Wallace MacDonald Cinematographer: L. W. O'Connell Editor:Reg Browne Production Designers: Lionel Banks, George Brooks Production Company: Columbia Pictures Corp. Cry of the Werewolf is a low-budget, black-and-white affair that clocks in with a running time of 63 minutes, making it feel more like an extended episode of an old anthology series than an actual movie. Unfortunately, it doesn't have much atmosphere or many scares but it does feature a good performance Nina Foch, who plays a mysterious woman who might hold the key for solving the mystery. (Foch later went on to a film career of some note. If you've ever watched The Ten Commandments on Easter, she played the Egyptian princess who adopted and raised Moses.) As for the werewolf itself, perhaps in an effort to save costs all transformations are done with morphing shadows or take place off-screen; and the "monster" was played by an actual wolf. Well, except for the final fight, when a stunt-German Shepherd was brought in for the hand-to-paw combat. One should note the application of what I think is a rubber band wrapped around the wolf's upper snout, causing it to snarl involuntarily. For the most part, this movie is for fans of old B-movies and maybe people who are curious to see a version of the werewolf legend that doesn't involve Lon Chaney, Jr. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review william k Low-budget horror tale is rather silly and not quite imaginative. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member 'Cry of the Werewolf' is a decent enough entry in the genre, and is pretty entertaining--Wolf, chick, and cat power!! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Not a bad movie at all. To be honest I was not familiar with it at all but it was pretty good not to long and got it point across. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member foch is good but has lame material 2 work with in this dull horror flick Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
