The Wolf Man (1941) at Alamo Drafthouse (Richardson)
Fast moving and suspenseful, this is one of the second wave of Universal Horrors. Full of the atmosphere that characterizes the first batch of their iconic monster films, with a jolt of the energy and momentum that the studio brought to their ‘40s output. Lon Chaney Jr. will forever be known as Lawrence Talbot, an unfortunate man bitten by a gypsy lycanthrope who undergoes a frightening transformation when the moon is full. Universal’s horror queen Evelyn Ankers is a lovely and welcome presence and Claude Rains does the heavy acting as Talbot’s father.
