03.08.07Terror Thursday Calvin Lockhart and Peter Cushing star in this Amicus horror movie that's really more like a mystery story except the murderer's a werewolf. They even begin the movie telling you this, then mentioning that at one point there will be a "werewolf break" where you can stop and think about who's the werewolf. Said break is great, with a 30-second timer and a voice-over suggesting each character (with a random shot of each person to match).

Lockhart doesn't seem to fit here. I really like him in the other stuff I've seen him in (mostly blaxploitation stuff, ok all blaxploitation stuff) but here he comes off as severely overacting. but then again, he's given such British lines to say. "I'm no VOYEUR!" just doesn't sound right coming out of his mouth. oh well.

Have to admit, this one was SLOW. I can't say I was ever bored like in Wolfhound, but the whole movie was tediously British. A few moments here and there but... overall I'm glad I saw it but wouldn't rush to see it again.
