An intermittently captivating snapshot of the road not taken towards a more scientific and urbane werewolf genre than the one we ultimately got.
An abstracted-husband fable to go with the anxious-bachelor comedy of Mamoulian's Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
...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.
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.
