Critic Reviews for She-Wolf of London (The Curse of the Allenbys)
Though the story is lacking in excitement, it at least was competently filmed and has winning sets.
A frustratingly long film about a woman who thinks she's a werewolf. The name of the film is most deceptive.
Fun, eerie 1946 wolfman thriller...with a lady wolf!

Audience Reviews for She-Wolf of London (The Curse of the Allenbys)
More of a murder mystery than a monster movie, She-Wolf of London is only mildly suspenseful and doesn't deliver any scares. After a series of animal attacks by a "She-Wolf," Phyllis Allenby begins to believe her family's curse is real and that she is the werewolf behind the murders. June Lockhart leads the cast and gives a strong performance that sells her intense fear and concern for her family. But it's pretty clear that the film isn't interested in a female wolf, as it shies away from showing the murderer or any kind of transformation. So instead there's a lot of melodrama with Phyllis pushing away her aunt and her fiance, and them trying to convince her that the werewolf curse is a silly superstition. Uneven and poorly paced, She-Wolf of London promises one kind of movie but delivers another.
A very short 61 minute Universal Film staring June Lockhart when she was 24 years old, 14 years prior to being Timmy's Mom on Lassie, Four women live together June plays the part of being the sole inheritor of and estate and is coming of age. There is a female werewolf running about, at least that's what were lead to believe, but is it June, is there a she wolf, well you will have to watch to find out, Another 4 star old school movie.
I knew it, I'm a werewolf! This is an interesting tangent in the old horror film genre, and if you like werewolf movies you might like to check it out, but otherwise it's kind of a silly movie.
