31 Days of Horror 2: The Wolf Man (1941)

October 27, 2009: The Wolf Man (1941)
After returning home to his English village, Larry Talbot gets attacked by a werewolf in the forest. Although he kills the beast, Larry realizes he has received a bite during the struggle - a bite that passes along the monster's curse to him. Maleva, the gypsy mother of the dead wolfman, comes to Larry's aid and tells him that he too will now transform into a werewolf each time there's a full moon. While the story sounds ridiculous to Larry, he starts to believe it once more brutal killings occur in the village. Neither his father, Sir John Talbot, nor the woman Larry loves are willing to believe the truth... but soon they're forced to confront the nature of Larry's curse as well.
I think this is the last monster movie from Universal I'm going to mention but I wanted to get them all in there. These movies, like I said yesterday, are all classics and if you haven't seen them go out and get them.
They did remake this movie and it's coming out soon, but I don't think anything can ever surpass the original.
