The Werewolf Break

Tom Newcliffe (Calvin Lockhart) is a man of wealth who has enjoyed hunting just about every animal possible. He has invited a group of friends to his house for a hunting party. But this is no ordinary hunt. Newcliffe has it in his head that one of his friends is a werewolf. He's not sure which friend he will be hunting, but over the three night full moon cycle, he's sure the werewolf will show himself. Unfortunately for Newcliffe and the rest of his party, a werewolf proves to be the most cunning and dangerous game he's faced.

I'll never list The Beast Must Die among my favorite films, but it's certainly enjoyable enough. The concept is original. I can't remember seeing anything similar. Much of the film is presented not so much as a horror movie, but as a mystery. These elements of The Beast Must Die worked for me. I found myself playing along as I tried to decipher the clues to the werewolf's identity. And in the end I was able to pat myself on the back for at least being half right. The Beast Must Die even gives the viewer a chance to stop and thing things over before the identity of the werewolf. William Castle would be proud of the Werewolf Break. Sure, it's gimmicky, but it's a fun, interesting touch.

There are a few things I would have liked to see done differently. I've never been much of a fan of werewolves that are more wolf than man. The werewolf in The Beast Must Die has no human characteristics. It's a wolf (okay, it's really a dog, but you get the idea). Also, I wasn't overly impressed with the lead actor Calvin Lockhart. He's just a little too over-the-top and outrageous to be effective.

Who's that werewolf?

First off this was a movie I saw very young, I can still remember seeing it at a neighbors house during the mid 70's on a Saturday afternoon matinée and it scared the s*** out of me. The thing is I never saw it again growing up till about 5 years ago because I had forgotten the name of it. All I could remember was the werewolf break and every time I tried to find the name of it by mentioning it to coworkers they looked at me like I was insane and was making it up. So I set forth on my task on finding a copy just to make sure I didn't dream up the whole thing, checking at a lot of second hand stores looking thru videos for any werewolf movie and reading the synopsis on the back trying to figure out the name to this movie I looked and looked and finally while going thru some video's at a video store came across the title The Beast Must Die. Thinking that's probably not it either till I read the back of the box, look out for the werewolf break. I was ecstatic to say the least I found it awesome. I bought it right then and there took it home made some popcorn and sat down to watch it thinking it might still scare me as it did as when I was younger. As I watched it I felt I was transported back to when I first saw it at a young age. It did not frighten me as it did when I was young but it somehow filled a void in my life for horror movies and how much fun they can be. This was five years ago and this has become one of my all time favorite movies. I give it 10 stars because I think it deserves it the entire cast works well together and from beginning to end the movie is just a lot of fun. Peter Cushing is great in just about everything he's ever done and because of this little gem I just love some of the horror movies from the company that made this, Amicus is there name and there responsible for a lot of the horror anthologies that came out in the early 70's TALES FROM THE CRYPT, THE HOUSE THAT DRIPPED BLOOD, ASYLUM. Oh and just to let you know a special edition DVD came out for this title and I highly recommend the DVD it shows the movie in widescreen and even shows a little more blood that was edited out of that old VHS copy I found. I still have it just for keeps though.

I actually LIKE this film!

This film is a fun spin on the 'whodunnit' genre of films, rather than working out who committed a crime you're actually playing 'whoisit' and trying to work out who is a werewolf.

It is very cheesy (typical 70s scenes, including the obligatory car chase sequence) and highly amusing in some parts, particularly the camp horror voice overs when the film gives you instructions and later asks you to solve the puzzle in the 'werewolf break'.

The obnoxiousness of the main character, Tom Newcliffe, amused me greatly. The other characters are also entertaining in their own ways, particularly the pompous Arthur Bennington, the eerily peculiar Paul Foote, the educated Dr. Lundgren, and Tom's level-headed wife Caroline.

Expect extreme cheese in terms of the scenes, soundtrack and lines, a bit of fun, small budget, and some over acting and I'm sure you'll find it as entertaining as I did. Great to watch with friends so you can try to guess who the werewolf is. Having watched this film numerous times, I can say there are enough clues to woprk it out, but they are quite subtle.
