Ah, nothing like early Universal horror films. This time we are dealing with a werewolf, not a vampire or monster (though if you want, I am pretty sure they made films of battle between the three of them). This one, I have to confess, creeped me out a little bit (just the early woods scene). I have never been a real werewolf movie person, but I was really into this.
This film is about a perfectly respectable man who is also A WEREWOLF??!??!?! You know what they say, "even a man that is pure in heart, and says his prayers by night, may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms and the autumn moon is bright." Who says this, you ask? Watch the movie!
Disclaimer: this movie is better than the campy Universal movies before it, which surprisingly enough, might turn some people off, who are looking forward to the cheese. I apologize.
This is a metaphor for when the Nazis took over Germany.
The bear that was supposed to battle Wolf Man broke out and chased Evelyn Ankers up into the rafters.
Myths about werewolves emerged from this film like the silver bullet, changing into a werewolf during the full moon, and becoming a werewolf through the bite. I would feel very powerful if I was the writer.
