No werewolf program is complete without the ultimate Universal horror classic, THE WOLF MAN.
Although a smattering of werewolf movies preceded it, including 1935’s The Werewolf of London, it’s Lon Chaney’s iconic role for Universal Pictures’ The Wolf Man that defined the werewolf in cinema. He plays Larry Talbot, a man visiting Wales to attend his brother’s funeral. While in town, he purchases a silver cane which he uses to kill a wolf who attacks him on the walk home one night. Turns out that it was actually a man, a gypsy’s son who was a werewolf, and now Larry is one too. And so ensues the internal struggle of man versus monster!
