Overview

After injecting new life into classic movie monsters Dracula and Frankenstein, Hammer Studios apply their Gothic touch to another monster genre with this excellent, stylish piece -- probably the best of the old school i.e. pre-Rick Baker man-to-wolf transformation films in the mold of Universal's The Wolf Man.

Overview

After injecting new life into classic movie monsters Dracula and Frankenstein, Hammer Studios apply their Gothic touch to another monster genre with this excellent, stylish piece -- probably the best of the old school i.e. pre-Rick Baker man-to-wolf transformation films in the mold of Universal's The Wolf Man. The title curse surfaces when a mute servant girl bears a child on Christmas day after being raped by a bestial madman and first shows itself at the infant's christening, whereupon the holy water begins to boil. Things go downhill from there, as young Leon's development is marred by savage, violent behavior during a full moon. Upon adulthood, Leon's Oliver Reed only relief from his murderous impulses comes from the love of Christina Catherine Feller... but he soon begins to fear that this cannot contain the beast within. Liberally based on Guy Endore's The Werewolf of Paris here relocated to Spain, this film represents Hammer at their early best, building tension through mood and character Reed turns in a bravura performance and saving the effective monster transformation for the climax.

    Nightmare

    I had never heard of "Nightmare" till I rented it, and now, having seen it, I don't know why I never came across it. It's an undiscovered gem by Hammer Studios.<BR/><BR/>Juiced up by director Freddie Francis with eerie, foreboding scenes in a house full of noirish black-and-white shadows and imminent menace, "Nightmare" seems more or less predictable at first, like it might be over halfway through, but in reality the best is yet to come. What in the world is going on here? Who is setting up whom? The plot, as adeptly crafted by Hammer stalwart Jimmie Sangster, has more twists and turns in it than does Mulholland Drive in the Hollywood Hills, and keeps you guessing till the very end. Where has this minor classic been all my life? Why did it never get exposure on TV? Don't miss this one if you relish an intriguing story and edge-of-your-seat suspense.<BR/><BR/>--Bryan Cassiday, author of "Fete of Death"
