The Curse of the Werewolf (1961) Blu-ray: A Hammer horror

Shout Factory Director Terence Fisher’s classic Hammer horror film, The Curse of the Werewolf (1961) on a 4K collector’s edition Blu-ray. Stars Clifford Evans, Oliver Reed.

His beast-blood demanded he KILL … KILL … KILL!

Directed by legendary horror filmmaker Terence Fisher (Horror of Dracula, The Curse Of Frankenstein), this atmospheric tale of terror stars Oliver Reed (Venom, The Brood) as the orphan of a maniacal beggar and a mute girl. From his birth to young manhood, he discovers a horrible secret. Try as he may, the cursed man is unable to deny the dark force within him. When the moon is full, he becomes an uncontrollable, seemingly unstoppable killer incapable of distinguishing between friend and foe.

Spectacular makeup effects and beautifully photographed 19th-century European locales heighten the suspense of this classic tale of horror.
