I Continuing a season of films to thrill and chill. Tonight starring Peter Cushing
A full moon, an old, dark house, and a howling in the woods herald a whodunnit with a gruesome difference. The number of the guests is dwindling, not because of a normal murderer, but because one of this assortment of mysterious weekend guests is a werewolf! Which of the guests becomes a man-eating beast when the moon is full? Who is the wolf and who the red herring? In the best armchair-detective tradition the film contains a 30-second 'werewolf break' to help you guess the beast's true identity!
