Scream of the Wolf

Notice the title says Scream of the Wolf (1974), not Scream of the Werewolf. And yet, after a few wolf attacks in the fog-draped Hollywood Hills that left a few people mangled, tangled and strangled, everyone starts talking about how it MUST be the work of a werewolf.

Scream of the Wolf

A murderous lycanthrope running around California makes about as much sense as the L.A. fog that rolls in every night. A former big game hunter-turned-detective is hot on the case. He doesn’t have his head up his own kennel and refuses to believe it’s a werewolf. A mountain lion with a knife maybe, but not a human turned into a full moon-maddened out-of-work actor.

There is no werewolf or graphic shredding of faces or any bloodshed worthy of a Band-Aid™. And that London-thick Los Angeles fog triggered my allergies for misleading horror movies.
