Today's film is The Wolf Man. It's not the best werewolf movie ever, nor is it the first, but it is the most well known. Also, a lot of the myths surrounding the werewolf came from this movie, not from folklore.
While watching this film, I kept wanting something more. It wasn't what I expected. The man who becomes the wolf man, Larry, visits his dad's house in Wales. He hits on a local girl almost to the point of being creepy. During this time, everyone talks about wolfs and wolfs-bane and all this, and it seems out of place, but there's doing that as super obvious foreshadowing.
Larry and the girl, who sold him a silver tipped cane, go visit a gypsy encampment together. The gypsy dude turns into a wolf, attacks Larry, and he beats him with his cane. Once the wolf dies, he turns back into a man. What's weird too is that Larry's wound heals super quick.
The old gypsy lady knows what's happening, and she gives him a protective amulet. He gives it as a gift to the girl. He is so stupid. That was for him, and plus, she already told him she has a boyfriend and he still won't leave her alone. So, he hits on her, and now is giving her gifts despite knowing she's already with someone. He is such a creeper.
He turns into a wolf man, which somehow involves him changing clothes without actually changing clothes. Also, wolf man is a far more appropriate term than werewolf because he's just a guy with a really hairy face. Plus he strangles his victims. Or, strangle/bites them. Wolves don't strangle their prey. Anyway, he dies so that's the end of that. I'm gonna give this film a 5/10.
