Filmed in glorious Talk-O-Vision, Werewolf in a Girls’ Dormitory [AKA Lycanthropus] is the thrilling tale of people talking about money, people talking about letters, people talking about murder, people talking about wolves, and people talking about sitting down. The wall-to-wall dialogue is delivered at a frightening pace; verbs, nouns, adjectives, and even adverbs explode across the screen like you’ve never heard before!
Maximilian Schell’s brother Carl “The Austrian Joe Estevez” Schell is a horny science teacher with a Messiah complex who bravely fights for the truth against the corrupt administration of an all-girls reform school, and he won’t stop talking until he gets it! He must talk against time to solve a mysterious murder, and at the same time talk about the mildly interesting double life of an equally horny philanthropist type. All this while talking to a modestly attractive moon-faced girl and a witchy spinster who’s probably just as horny as the rest of them.
Oh, and apparently there’s a werewolf who figures in somehow, too.
Join J.C. Walsh as he attempts to fight talking with talking and uncover the deep, dark, boring secrets of Werewolf in a Girls’ Dormitory!
