A Vastly Under-Rated, Very Well Done Suspense Movie

I was quite surprised to see the relatively low rating this movie receives here, and the only explanation I can come up with for that is the likelihood of unrealized expectations. The title leads one to believe that this is going to be a horror movie - I watched it myself as part of a collection of classic Universal werewolf movies (its inclusion in that collection leads to that expectation) and thought that the concept of a female werewolf (there really haven't been many that I can think of) would be an interesting twist to the usual werewolf stories. As it turns out, this isn't a werewolf movie. It's a psychological suspense/thriller type of story about a young woman (played by June Lockhart) who believes she's a werewolf and thinks she's responsible for a series of murders in a local park - and, frankly, if you can let go of the werewolf expectation and rate this movie on its own merits, it's really quite well done.

You do wonder throughout if there is a werewolf, and the identity of the killer was never really clear to me until it was brought out into the open near the end. There are a variety of possibilities; the only thing you can be sure of is that not everything is as clear as it seems to be.

There are a couple of plot holes to this. The police seemed to suggest that the killer would have had to had immense strength to have perpetrated the attacks. Frankly, Martha (Sara Haden) didn't seem to be overly strong. At her confession, Martha also seems to indicate that her killing spree began with the young boy, and yet there were killings before the boy was killed. Given the strange attacks that were happening in this park, it also seemed to me to be passing strange that so many people still hung out there at night! Plot holes aside, though, I thought this was very well done and deserves to be thought more highly of. 8/10

Don't expect to see a female version of the Wolf Man.

When watching the She – Wolf of London, don't expect to see a female version of the Wolf Man, This should not be classed with the Wolf Man, Frankenstein, Dracula, the Mummy or any of their offshoots. It's an enjoyable movie but it should be considered not so much a horror movie but more of a mystery. If you are looking for a good horror movie, this isn't it. The acting is good, sets are good, plot a bit weak. It's a good chance to see June Lockhart playing a major role early in her career. I found that the movie did keep my interest but the horror factor never really came into play. Although it wasn't what I expected, I still enjoyed it. It certainly isn't a must see movie, but it isn't a waste of your time either.

Strange happenings in foggy London

Despite its title, She-Wolf of London contains no werewolves, but I still enjoyed this movie. It is more of a mystery than a horror.

A series of murders take place, all at night, around London. The nature of these murders suggest they have been committed by a werewolf. A young woman thinks she is responsible as her family has connections with werewolves and thinks she is one herself. But she certainly isn't the murderer as she nearly becomes a victim herself...

The movie is nicely shot in black and white and some of the foggy night scenes are very atmospheric.

The cast includes a young June Lockhart (who went on to play Maureen Robinson in Lost In Space),Don Porter and Sara Haden.

Watching She-Wolf of London is an ideal way to spend an hour one dark evening.

Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
