Let’s not beat about the bush. Only the Rifftrax narration made this monstrosity bearable.

There is never a werewolf in a girl’s dormitory. Or at least, absolutely not in the snarling, monstrous manner indicated. There is a werewolf. There is a dormitory. The dormitory is slept in by those gendered to be female. I’m hazy as to how we are meant to interpret the phrase ‘girl’. The female lead actress was 21 when the movie was released. Anyway.

The most monstrous part of this movie is not the werewolf, but the men in positions of trust at, or related to, the reform school that the aforementioned dormitory belongs to. The werewolf itself is somewhat of an anticlimax by comparison.

I’m trying to think of anything else to say about this and I can’t.
