The Amicus studio is better known for omnibus horror films like Torture Garden and Tales from the Crypt, and this flaccid feature suggests they would have done better to stick to that winning formula. Rich eccentric Lockhart invites a group of guests to his country mansion to discover which of them is a werewolf: a standard country house mystery, in fact, with werewolf substituted for murderer. Worse still, the film employs an awkward device whereby the audience is also invited to wade through the shoals of red herrings to guess the werewolf's identity for themselves.
