Update: House of the Wolf Man


The retro-horror flick, House of the Wolf Man (US-2009; dir. Eben McGarr) — a logical modern addition to Universal’s monster mashes, House of Frankenstein (US-1944; dir. Erle C. Kenton) and House of Dracula (US-1945; dir. Erle C. Kenton) — picked up by Taurus Entertainment and Ryko Video for distribution on DVD on September 28 this year. You can even pre-order on Amazon.

Among others, the film stars Ron Chaney, grandson of the original Wolf Man, Lon Chaney Jr. — and hence grandson of Lon Chaney. That’s quite a lineage.


Here Chaney plays not the Wolf Man but Bela Reinhardt, the mad scientist who orchestrates the monstrous events.
