I wont put any spoilers in here suffice it to say this is a true Hammer Horror classic.
released in 1961. Considered controversial at the time it was made - the film was heavily censored in the UK by the BBFC. By today's standards it's all rather tame and this DVD release has been given a 12 certificate.
Set in Spain, for no other reason than Hammer had Spanish sets left over from an abandoned Spanish Inquisition film. Very little of interest occurs in the first hour: a mute servant girl is raped by a beggar, nine months later she dies giving birth, the child (called Leon) grows hair on the palms of his hands and suffers nightmares, goats are found with their throats ripped out. There's a cool scene where the priest attempts to christen the baby, only for the water in the font to suddenly begin boiling. Another good scene sees a hunter making silver bullets. But all this could have been told in thirty minutes - not sixty.
Oliver Reed (playing the adult Leon) doesn't appear for 45 minutes. Then we have to wait an hour into the film for the carnivorous lunar activities to finally kick off. And it is at this point that Curse Of The Werewolf becomes classic Hammer.
Oliver Reed (then only 22) is very good in the lead role. The supporting cast are of a high calibre too, including Clifford Evans, the very beautiful and busty Yvonne Romain, and Hammer regular Michael Ripper. The werewolf make-up is fantastic too.
Respect must go to Final Cut Entertainment for making this hard to find film available on DVD in the UK. There are no problems with the sound or picture quality. The picture is in full screen. The DVD does not have subtitles and there are no extras.
One more thing, this DVD release has a great front cover - very much in keeping with the old Hammer style.
three and a half stars.
by sculptor Mike Hill who does a good job. Anyone who loves this film will be pleased to see interviews by Vyonne Romain, Catherine Feller,
Margaret Robinson, Don Mingaye and Jimmy Sangster who talk about the film and Hammer in general.
There is a second short doc on werewolves, a stills gallery and a collection of 8 reproduction small uk front-of-house stills clipped inside the left side case.
The front image to the steelcase is dull compared to the poster images available for the film.
I dont regret purchasing it, simply because of the lovely Vyonne Romain who is stunning and funny talking about asking Hammer to use a stand in
to get put into Black Park Lake but was refused as her face would be visible to the camera when getting pulled out.
I think the main point though is that for the price you are getting the same previous transfer.
