I really couldn't stay focused on this classic horror film. It certainly is very dramatic, but it also seemed very B grade. Admittedly I saw a dodgy copy of this film, which made viewing a little frustrating. Maybe a second viewing will be better. 1001

Not a bad film despite the melodrama. It was boosted by an alright plot. I guess it was supposed to be in England?

A Fantastic addition to the universal monster classics. This movie has great suspense, acting, and storyline. It may be slow at times but, it still manages to pack a punch.

With a powerful performance by Lin Chaney Jr., The Wolf Man manages to show case sympathy to a beloved horror icon

While not perfect, The Wolf Man is still an enjoyable Universal Pictures classic. Part of it is due to the no nonsense run time that barely breaks an hour, the rest is due to fantastic performances from the entire cast, especially Lon Chaney.

The effects are kinda dated, but they do deliver on the plot and story, even if the characters are not very interesting!

The Wolf Man lacks in terms of the originality and actual scares, but it executes its story very well as it is so well crafted, edited, directed and of course acted. The imagery is so effective, the characterization is surprisingly good and it is also pleasantly emotional, realistic and above all always engaging, entertaining and just so superbly made that you can't help but appreciate it.

It hasn't stood the test of time as a horror movie but it's still very beautifully made and shot, with fine atmosphere and good acting.

A personal favorite horror film of mine. Despite being made on a B-budget, it can blend in with the A-budget Universal horror films made in the 30s.

Another all time Universal classic, with legendary Lon Chaney Jr. and even an appearance by Bela Lugosi as a gypsy. The acting is very fine it 's also heavy on atmosphere : a small village and a fogy marsh next to it where the murders occurs. Good movie, check it out !!

A little bit slow in the plot area, but in general, a horror classic, and one of the most popular and iconic figures of old school cinema.

A Universal horror classic, The Wolf Man is a concise monster movie that's cautionary message still rings relevant today due to an unbelievably smart script and great character acting.

A beautifully acted classic piece of cinema my favourite Universal monster movie and the best werewolf film ever made. Lon Chaney Jr captivates with his performance of the troubled Larry Talbot as the film builds to it's unavoidable tragic conclusion the warmth you feel for the anti hero and the empathy you have for his plight provides the real horror.

The original is so far ahead of any remake because Chaney Jr. was so effective as the tortured soul with a terrible secret.
Super Reviewer

There have been better werewolf movies since, but this is still a solid film and deserves its place in cinema history.
