Severin Films presents Paolo Heusch’s Werewolf in a Girls’ Dormitory (1961) on a 2-Disc Blu-ray edition. Stars Barbara Lass.
Twisted Italian horror meets lurid German krimi in the 1961 EuroShocker filled with “genuinely eerie scenes and rather graphic maulings” (DVD Drive-In), now restored as you’ve never seen or heard it before.
When an all-girl reform school is rocked by a series of grisly murders, it will unleash a nightmare of sexual corruption and lupine depravity.
Carl Schell (The Blue Max), Barbara Lass (aka Roman Polanski’s first wife Barbara Kwiatkowska) and Luciano Pigozzi (Castle of The Living Dead) star in this infamous Italian/Austrian co-production – originally titled LYCANTHROPUS – directed by Paolo Heusch (The Day The Sky Exploded) from a screenplay by Giallo maestro Ernesto Gastaldi (All The Colors of The Dark).
Classic score by Armando Trovajoli (Strange Shadows In An Empty Room), and newly scanned in 2k from archival elements recently discovered in a Rome lab vault.
