Legend of the Werewolf

Film, Horror

Time Out says

This carries all the earmarks of a disaster-ridden project. Lurching from a hopeless opening sequence - in which a Look at Life voice-over 'explains' the werewolf in decidedly bland terms - into a disastrously unfocused section featuring Hugh Griffith as a travelling showman, it finally settles down to being an only faintly more coherent tale of werewolf murders, set in a grade-school version of fin de siècle Paris. The script is particularly preposterous, and even Cushing looks disconcerted by the shambles around him.
