Classic Horror Movies: Day 11 (THE WOLF MAN - 1941)

The Wolf Man

"Even a man who is pure at heart/And says his prayers by night/May become a wolf when the wolf-bane blooms/And the moon is full and bright." Classic line from a classic horror film that casts Lon Chaney as Larry Talbot, a man who tries to save a girl from a wolf attack and becomes bitten by the creature and will soon turn into a monster himself at the first full moon. One of the best horror movies ever made that boasts a stellar cast. Besides Chaney, you have Claude Rains, Evelyn Ankers, Ralph Bellamy, Bela Lugosi, Patric Knowles, and Maria Ouspenskaya. Featuring some top notch makeup effects and a haunting music score.
