UNIVERSAL MONSTERS

The Wolf Man

Directed by
George Waggner

Our monthlong series of Universal Monsters double features kicks off with two tales of animal instinct. (THE WOLF MAN screens back to back with THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON all weekend; $15 double feature pricing is available.)

“One of the finest horror films ever made.” – Leonard Maltin

When his brother dies, Larry Talbot (Lon Chaney Jr) returns to Wales and reconciles with his father (Claude Rains). While there, he visits an antique shop and, hoping to impress Gwen (Evelyn Ankers), the attractive shopkeeper, buys a silver walking cane. That same night he kills a wolf with it, only to later learn that he actually killed a man. A gypsy explains that it was her son, a werewolf, that he killed, and that Larry is now one himself.
