The Wolf Man’s protagonist-and-monster Larry Talbot is unlike Universal’s other star monsters. Larry, first of all, is merely a normal person up until the events of the film, and experiences drastic change through no fault of his own. Not even the Invisible Man is as ‘innocent’ as Talbot. For this he could be seen as the most tragic character produced by the studio during this era. This wealthy, charming young man has his life and freedom stripped from him, as he lives his later days under the curse of the werewolf, turning him into a vicious murderer during nights of a full moon, but it’s the days in between that bring more anguish and psychological torture to Larry. Lon Chaney Jr rose to fame for his performance as The Wolf Man, and would become Universal’s biggest star throughout the 1940s, going on to play as both Frankenstein’s Monster and Dracula in later pictures. A decade later, he would return to his breakout role, playing Larry Talbot in Frankenstein Meets The Wolf Man (1943) – a film which plays out as a direct sequel to Wolf Man and later incorporating the events of previous Frankenstein features.

This a fine feature, although not exactly holding the same grace as the features of James Whale. The cast is superb, which apart from Chaney’s tortured performance, also features the talent of Lugosi and Claude Rains. The graveyard scenes are still gorgeous today, and help make the finale of this film one of Universal horror’s most memorable climaxes.

A practical man returns to his homeland, is attacked by a creature of folklore, and infected with a horrific disease his disciplined mind tells him can not possibly exist.
