Black Friday

Another Siodmak penned picture about a mild-mannered man transforming into a brutal friend. The thematic difference is then that the condition of the wolfman is uncontrollable and the result of an old mythology, while the condition portrayed herein is intended and the result of modern science. Both end on notes of tragedy and martyrdom, though this film retains a glimmer of hope that may just make it even more saddening.
