The House of Hammer

The House of Hammer, Issue 10, “The Curse of the Werewolf” Pages 37-38

“The Curse of the Werewolf” is a 1961 British horror film based on the novel “The Werewolf of Paris” by Guy Endore. The film was made by the British company Hammer Film Productions and was shot at Bray Studios. The leading part of the werewolf was Oliver Reed’s first starring role in a film. The film was heavily censored in the United Kingdom on its initial release and was first shown on the BBC in a restored version thirty-two years later in 1993.

The film was adapted into a 15-page comic strip for the January 1978 issue of the magazine “The House of Hammer” (volume 1, # 10, published by General Book Distribution). It was drawn by John Bolton from a script by Stephen Moore. The cover of the issue featured a painting by Brian Lewis as Leon in human and werewolf forms.
