Curse of the Werewolf had a whole lot going for it, from fantastic production value to Terrance Fisher's always excellent direction, this is one of Hammer Studios' best. Oliver Reed plays the tortured lyncanthropic victim better even than Chaney, and the cast is superb all around. It even has one of my favorite Hammer character actors in it, Michael Ripper. All around just an awesome movie. Highly recommended - if you've never seen it, do yourself a favor and go track down a copy - you won't be disappointed.
Looking at these posters points out one thing that is missing from today's movies - an awesome art campaign. Back then studios really took pride in their advertising, and posters were more than photographs of floating heads - they were works of art! Take a look at these posters for this movie. Absolutely beautiful!
