Severin Blu-ray Reviews: Werewolf In A Girls’ Dormitory (1961) and Byleth (1972)

Season’s Greetings, everyone! ’Tis the season to be busy and you’ll stay that way snatching up Blu-rays if Severin Films has anything to say about it. Here are two recent releases to consider:

Werewolf in a Girls' Dormitory (1961): It’s an early giallo! No, it’s a monster movie! Actually, it’s both. Werewolf in a Girls’ Dormitory is a stone-cold gas; beautiful, evocative photography from Renato Del Frate (The Holy Nun) and solid direction by Paolo Heusch (Violent Life) highlight this tale of a reform school for girls that has enough red herrings and blackmail amongst its tale of lycanthropic dread. When a new teacher (Carl SchellThe Blue Max) arrives at the school, some of the girls begin to turn up dead, and are thought to have arrived at their station due to wolf attacks. But you and I know better; and with a clever

Werewolf in a Girls’ Dormitory

Italian horror from the early 1960s covers a wide range of quality, from eerie hauntings to tacky vampire romps. For one of his first major credits, ace giallo scribe Ernesto Gastaldi cooks up Lycanthropus, a murder mystery in which the savage slashing is committed by a drooling maniac with a hairy face, wild eyes and saber-toothed fangs. You saw the poster out front, kid — do you think it might be … a werewolf? Director Paolo Heusch’s thriller is no classic, but neither is it stupid — and the original Italian language option on this disc reveals good work by a spirited cast. Dreamy Polish starlet Barbara Lass is a much more assertive, independent female than what we expect from conventional Italo horror fare.

R.I.P. - Bava Film Composer Armando Trovajoli Dies
Armando Trovajoli, known for his work on many Sophia Loren films and more recently, the theme music to Curb Your Enthusiasm, passed away last week at the age of 95.

Trovajoli’s contribution to the horror genre can be heard in Bava’s supremely weird sword and sandal epic Hercules in the Haunted World, the Bava-produced Atom Age Vampire, and Paolo Heusch’s Werewolf in a Girls' Dormitory.

Watch the trailer for 1963's Atom Age Vampire, about a doctor who “sacrifices his soul to the cunning gods of evil” in order to restore beauty to the woman he loves. Not much has changed since 1963.
