The studio again turned to master craftsman Fisher to smartly shepherd a horror favorite into its fold, although this would turn out to be Hammer’s sole lycanthropic tale. Then-rising star Oliver Reed took on the titular challenge amidst a half-decade’s work for the studio. Youngster Justin Walters holds the screen initially as a tortured and tragic family history plays out, with the werewolf hex hitting him at birth and condemning him to a lifetime of nocturnal transformations and bloodlust.
