Audience Reviews for Werewolf in a Girl's Dormitory (Lycanthropus)


Slow and cheap, the characters aren't too good and the werewolf effects aren't the best. A few of the characters seemed to pop out of nowhere and the ending was unsatisfying. This film doesn't offer much.

Italian B-movie horror. The plot is terrible as are the special effects. Worst werewolf I've seen bar none. Not frightening in the least. The acting is fairly poor as well. The good part? All those reform school girls are lovely :) Almost made it watchable...

Pretty average B-Grade Horror, from 1960's Italy. Not very entertaining at all really. Okay though, just thought more could have been done with the concept of Werewolf lose at a girls dormitory. Not nearly as sexy as you might think it should be, and a lot more boring. The identity of the werewolf did catch me off guard though so the movie gets some points for the surprise element, but in all honest when that came to light I didn't really care anymore. The werewolf genre is one that is very rarely done well, and this is no exception. Average for the genre and the period I guess, but not really worth seeking out.
