Movie Info

Originally intended as a vehicle for Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi, this Universal production predated The Wolf Man by six years, but failed to whip up audience enthusiasm for the monster popularized by Lon Chaney, Jr. in the studio's later classic. Henry Hull stars as botanist Dr. Glendon, whose foray through Tibet in search of a rare night-blooming "marifasa lupina" ends when he is savagely attacked by man-beast Yogami (Warner Oland). Recovering back in London, Glendon begins to undergo the

An abstracted-husband fable to go with the anxious-bachelor comedy of Mamoulian's Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

April 3, 2011 Full Review Source: CinePassion

...a 1935 thriller that's one of the most well-crafted and polished suspense movies of the era. The plot blends new components of the werewolf 'legend' with some science-fictional elements.

The combination of uninspiring leads and a somewhat half-hearted script makes it tough going, even at a trim 75 minutes.

Intriguing, if slightly stodgy, early werewolf shocker

For my money, Werewolf of London remains the best werewolf picture of all time.

A horror film that would have been better with someone else in the lead. Still, it's a classic.

Audience Reviews for Werewolf of London

Slow and too talkative early on and not quite as atmospheric as other early Universal horror. It does have some effective moments though and some pretty decent effects for its time including the earliest depiction of a CCTV camera that I've seen which obviously wasn't invented and put into use for a good few decades afterwards.

This film is just what it is a 1935 werewolf film. What can you expect for special effects in 1935. Overall a good story line. Also has a few comical parts. Done by Universal Studios, part of a double feature by Universal Studios. 3 Stars

Sometimes entertaining, but sometimes unbelievable and silly. I had a hard time rating this movie. Overall it's okay.

Though worthy of it's status as a bona fide horror classic, Werewolf of London is far too genteel to be overtly frightening. Stuart Walker is no James Whale, Henry Hull is no Boris Karloff and Warner Oland is no Bela Lugosi. Still, it's a landmark film that, for it's time, revolutionized special effects and elevated the werewolf to screen infamy.
