Halloween Edition: Cry of the Werewolf (1944 Full Film)


A Romani gypsy princess is actually a werewolf.  She uses her curse to protect the tomb of her mother Marie LaTour whom she inherited the curse from.  Anyone who discovers the tomb is just a tasty meal to this beautiful gypsy.  

Also known as Daughter of the Werewolf, Cry of the Werewolf stars the lovely Nina Foch and Osa Massen.  Their beauty and elegant style and acting make this otherwise unbearable film watchable and enjoyable.  It is based on a story by Griffin Jay and was directed by Henry Levin.

Cry of the Werewolf is actually considered to be the first film to star a female werewolf.  However, a lost silent film from 1913, The Werewolf, would technically be the first, however; it is nowhere to be found due to a fire at Universal Studios in 1924.
