A Mad Killer, A Mad Scientist, and A Wolf Man Monster

Are you ready for a chill? . . . . are you anxious for the hair on the back of your head to stand at attention? Are you ready for goose bumps as big as a strawberry? Wait for a dark and stormy night to watch this thriller, and sit very close to someone that you trust . . . . someone that you trust with your life! No, this movie doesn't star any of the well-known horror actors like Lon Chaney or Bela Lugosi, and that somehow makes it even more frightening. Sometimes when I watch a horror thriller the author's intent is to keep the identity of the villain a secret until the closing, horrifying scene. This is not one of those movies, as I quickly and correctly identified the horrible killer, and knowing his identity made the story all the more suspenseful and thrilling. A mad killer is loose in Paris and death stalks the dark streets. Each victim sees the horrible face of a monster in the window immediately before being killed. This mad killer is called the Wolf, and we quickly decide that Tod Slaughter, who no one suspects except us, is the villain, complete with his maniac laugh. But the face in the window before he kills is not his face . . . . there is a horrible monster loose that seems to follow our villain, and the goose bumps begin. Now, here is a twist that is unique and imaginative - a mad scientist discovers how to bring the dead back to life with the power of electricity, and it is this mad scientist that will finally allow our heroes to reveal the identity of the mad killer to the police. If the mad scientist can get a freshly killed victim of the Wolf he might bring the dead man back to life long enough to reveal the identity of the Wolf. Ahhhh . . . . but our deranged killer is pretty clever, and it doesn't look like the police will ever suspect him, but instead focus their attention on a young man who is being framed by the killer. You see, there is a young damsel in this one, and the mad killer wants the pretty young girl for himself, but her boyfriend stands in the way. Before the story is over both the boyfriend and the young girl are convinced of the identity of the killer, but no one will believe them, and the killer may get away with his horrible crimes much like London's Jack the Ripper and never be caught. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn to share with someone you trust, and enjoy the show.
