DVD Review

She-Wolf of London (1946)


Starring: June Lockhart and Don Porter
Universal Classic Cinema
RRP: £9.99
Certificate: PG
Available 05 May 2008

When a number of violent attacks take place in and around a park in London, a young woman fears the family curse of lycanthropy has returned. After each night of the full moon she awakes with no memory of her activities the night before. She begins to take drastic precautions, believing herself to be the next in line of the werewolf. But is something more sinister at play...?

This is one of a veritable plethora of horror and sci-fi releases from Universal Classics. No less than twenty titles receive a new lease of life on DVD this month (May, 2008).

She-Wolf of London really is a product of its time (1946). All of the main characters are upper class with plums in their mouth, with supporting roles such as policemen being Cockney geezers and talking like Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins. There's literally no middle ground.

The film succeeds by virtue of there being no werewolf present, so rather than a horror, She-Wolf of London consequentially becomes a murder mystery, with an attempt to frame the protagonist using a horror legend scenario.
