  • Mar 28, 2015
    Early science fiction horror film about a mad scientist's experiment to create a wolf man gone wrong. Essentially a rip off on The Wolf Man to cash in its fame.

    Super low-budget PRC variation on Universal's The Wolf Man from 5 months earlier. Doing away with any sort of larger mythology that Curt Siodmak developed, this is a simple case of a mad scientist (George Zucco) injecting wolf blood into his simple-minded manservant to create a soldier with animal strength. Dr. Cameron (Zucco) plans to use the hulking creature as a tool for revenge too. Glenn Strange, who would later portray Frankenstein's monster several times for Universal, gets to stalk the forest at night and growl as a massive werewolf here. It is quite unbelievable and unintentionally funny when Zucco's character tosses away a whip and straddles Strange's character multiple times to give the super-human monster a sedative. The DVD sleeve from the 50 Movies Horror Classics box set I own says, "The scientist's daughter Lenora grows wary of her father's actions and shares her suspicions with a newspaper reporter. When the scientist loses control of his creature, it falls upon the scientist's daughter and the reporter to stop it." That is almost entirely false. While the daughter does grow suspicious, the reporter learns of the murdering beast on his own, and the two young people have no part in stopping it. The scientist's revenge plot barely holds the picture together.

    So so. Genetic research gone mad!
