HorrorMovie Time: The Mad Monster (1942)

Cover of Cover of The Mad Monster


Dr. Cameron (George Zucco) has succeeded
in his experiments with a serum which will turn
a man into a wolf-like monster and is ready to
avenge himself on the men who caused his
professional failure...

Ah yes, this is a little gem that we've picked up a while ago during a search for some good old black and white classic Horror flicks...

Not only it's a great addition for our little virtual cinema club, courtesy of PublicDomainFlicks.com, but it also fits niftly in our newly started compilation of wolf-related items...





So, get your popcorn and drinks ready,
seat comfortably and....
enjoy.
