Werewolf in a Girl's Dormitory (1961)

A girls school is plagued by a series of murders after a charming new professor starts teaching, but the wounds appear to be caused by a large animal.. Who or what is the killer? For a no-budget sleeper, the film is better than expected, with decent filming, a few excellent exteriors capturing beautiful contrasts in B+W, and simple but effective make-up. There are some pacing issues that cause the film to crawl at times, but it keeps the audience guessing until the end. After watching many terrible public domain bores, I always expect the worst, but this is actually a decent little film even with its standard B-movie plot and average acting.

Rating: 6/10.

  2. This is another I have in the budget pack but have yet to watch. Sounds like it might be entertaining enough!

  3. Its worth checking out, out of the 100 flicks I bought in the budget packs, about 50 out of the 60 Ive watched have been trash, but The Screaming Skull, The Killer Shrews, Dementia 13, and now Werewolf in a Girls Dormitory stuck out for sure
