Several murders have been committed in a London park and the victims have been savagely clawed about the throat. The police believe that a woman is a killer, and perhaps she is a (she) werewolf. Heiress Phyllis Allenby, fears she is the criminal, based on the family legend of the "Allenby Curse" which was the belief that members of the family at times assumed the form of a wolf. Her aunt's constant reminders to her of the "Allenby Curse" only serves to keep her niece's fears alive.Written by

Largely shot on Universal's old "Hacienda" set, used on many of the studio's "B" westerns. See more »
The first time Martha Winthrop brings up a glass of milk to Phyllis Allenby, the glass is half full as she walks up the stairs to the bedroom, but after she opens the door and enters the room, the glass is nearly full to the top. See more »
Despite its title, She-Wolf of London contains no werewolves, but I still enjoyed this movie. It is more of a mystery than a horror.
A series of murders take place, all at night, around London. The nature of these murders suggest they have been committed by a werewolf. A young woman thinks she is responsible as her family has connections with werewolves and thinks she is one herself. But she certainly isn't the murderer as she nearly becomes a victim herself...
The movie is nicely shot in black and white and some of the foggy night scenes are very atmospheric.
The cast includes a young June Lockhart (who went on to play Maureen Robinson in Lost In Space), Don Porter and Sara Haden.
Watching She-Wolf of London is an ideal way to spend an hour one dark evening.
Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
