Did You Know?


Director Kevin McDonagh often likes to put nods to his previous film in his work. There are two references to Idol of Evil in Lycanthropy: 1. The doctor David Hilton is the same name as the hero in Idol. 2 the Victim of the vampire sisters in the bar is called Bain and is played by the actor who played the same character in Idol of Evil. The hero's wife is called Tessa Taylor and that is the name of the News reporter in McDonagh's follow up feature Enter the Cage./ See more »


During the autopsy of the first victim you can very clearly see the "Dead" girls eyes flickering. See more »

Lycanthropy may be the weirdest of the "werewolf" movies I've seen since some of the narrative is muddled. Still, it's worth a look...
2 August 2018 | by tavmSee all my reviews

Of all the werewolf movies I've reviewed in chronological order, this has got to be the weirdest of them yet. There's a police detective investigating the murder of a girl who was an only child who had unusual bite marks on her. The ones responsible have been taking drugs that supposedly turned them into werewolves but when they start opening their mouths, they don't have fangs! You also don't see hair grow on them! in fact, the detective explains to his superior that these people seem to have the attitude of thinking they're the title creatures which this boss doesn't believe in. To tell the truth, I'm not sure I completely believe it, either. Still, this was quite thrilling and atmospheric so on that note, I say give Lycanthropy a chance.
