Hippie "werewolf"
12 March 2019 | by stones78See all my reviews

This is one of those episodes that I liked better after watching it the 2nd time, as I felt the story was fairly original, and there are several familiar faces. Some of these faces include a pre-Kung Fu David Carradine, David McCallum, Ford Rainey, and Bill Quinn. As you should by now, there are no actual "werewolves" in this segment, although I think the term was mentioned a few times, although I forget who said it. Let me also add that the attacks/chases by the "wolves", or perhaps just big dogs, was filmed rather well and convincing for 1971, as CGI wasn't around quite yet. The scene were the one wolf/big dog fends off the other 2 to help protect Dr. Winter(McCallum) was spot on, and probably my favorite scene of this episode. I also enjoyed the scene with Dr. Winter, Dr. Tom(Quinn), and Betty(Trina Parks), as they all discussed the murders going on at the asylum. Watch out for that forefinger too! That was pretty creepy looking, and it didn't look that fake either. I've never heard this finger mythology regarding the evil creatures, but kudos on it being original.
