5.0 out of 5 stars Superb horror classic, 10 Feb 2013

This review is from: The Curse of the Werewolf --DVD--Exclusive 2 Disc Limited Steelbook. (DVD)
The Curse Of The Werewolf was released in 1961, directed by Terence Fisher, who was one of Hammer Films' best directors. It is notable also for being Hammer's only werewolf film. The film stars Oliver Reed and Clifford Evans, among others and TV favourite Warren Mitchell makes his only Hammer films appearance also in this film. I have always enjoyed this film and I consider it to be one of Hammers' finest films, though some of the other reviews I have read of it seem to be a bit harsh on Oliver Reed. We don't see him until about halfway through the film, but plenty happens in the first half of the film. This doesn't ruin the film for me, though. The print of the film used for this DVD is as good as can be expected for a film of this age and it looks a lot better than some of the other films of this age that I have on DVD. You may be interested to know that this is also the complete and uncut version of the film, including more violence and gore than in previous versions. I am aware that this version was screened on TV by the BBC back in 1994, but I never saw that, so this was the first time that I had ever had the chance to see the uncut version and it is much better than the previous versions, which were all heavily cut. I recommend this film to any Hammer Horror fan, or any fan of classic horror or werewolf films. I am pleased to give this film the full five stars. Classic Hammer film!
