Movie Info

When big-game hunter Tom Newcliffe (Calvin Lockhart) invites a group of people to stay at his estate, they expect a relaxing weekend. Instead, they arrive to learn he thinks one of them is a werewolf and that no one can leave until that person is exposed. Among the suspects are a piano player (Michael Gambon) and his girlfriend (Ciaran Madden), an archaeologist (Peter Cushing), a diplomat (Charles Gray) and an artist (Tom Chadbon), all of whom are subjected to a series of werewolf tests.

Audience Reviews for The Beast Must Die

  • May 10, 2016
    Cracking little horror film that deserves a wider audience.

    How can you not love a film that starts off announcing that towards the end there will be a special 'Werewolf minute' for you to guess the identity of the killer and then launches into the film with a full-on 'Shaft'-like soundtrack? These two elements, along with a Lockhart as an entrepeneur/hunter that has invited his guests to a secluded mansion in order to work out which is the werewolf, make this film a very different entity than most British horror at this time. Unfortunately the film-makers run out of ideas pretty quickly and my wife wasn't the only one to notice that the numerous chase sequences seem to go on forever without adding anything to the story. In the end I didn't guess the proper identity of the werewolf (or should that be 'very large dog' as the beast hardly looks threatening) but I still enjoyed this little oddity.

    Fairly bad Agatha Christie with a werewolf twist
