Werewolf of London (1935)

Werewolf of London (1935): "Thanks for the bullet..."
This is one of the great werewolf movies of all time. It's campy and scary. The make-up is minimal on the wolfman to allow for a broader range of expressions. And it's hilarious when the werewolf puts on his hat and coat to prowl under the full moon and kill. Plus, we don't get all the silver bullet b.s. that we get in the later movies. I really enjoyed this film. I have it on my Universal Wolfman box set and just got around to watching it. Awesome film. Makes the Howling look like shit. Starring Henry Hull and the beautiful Valerie Hobson. Wish I could find me a looker like that.
