The Boy Who Cried Werewolf

Year: 1973
Director: Nathan Juran
Extremely cheesy midday movie about a kid whose father turns into a werewolf and nobody believes him. I was only interested because of the continuing fascination and terror I held for werewolves after An American Werewolf in London. The hallmark of any werewolf movie is the transformation sequence, and the one min this film gives you an idea of the calibre of the rest of it; a very cheap transition as the actor with the werewolf makeup fades in as the unmade up guy fades out while looking at himself in a mirror.

The director, it turns out, is a classic B movie stalwart, responsible for the original Attack of the 50 Foot Woman. Also one of the last double bill movies released by Universal, along with the (presumably equally corny) Sssssss.
