The Yucky Movies of October: She-Wolf of London

11) She-Wolf of London

Well, this one wasn't yucky at all. Part of the Universal Monsters Wolf Man set, I figured this was a werewoman story. We'd have a girl who wolfed out, people would be mauled, and gypsys would show up at some point. There's an heiress, some relatives, a mammoth house set, and lots of that patented Universal atmosphere.

Sadly, it's more of a "is she going mad" number. More Gaslight than The Wolf Man it's a passable enough way to spend an hour with a very young Miss June Lockhart, and a very nice, nasty speech denouement of a speech towards the end, but that's about it.

If you like old programmers, give it a whirl. Otherwise, ya ain't missin' much.
