MOON OF THE WOLF (1972)

This simple no frills TV movie from the 70s is worthwhile for its casting against type of David Janssen, TV’s original “Fugitive,” as a Louisiana Bayou sheriff investigating an odd murder in the swamp.  It appears that young Ellie looks like she was torn apart by wild dogs.  But before the town can go on a rampage against stray pooches, town doctor John Beradino says she was knocked unconscious first by a left-handed person – and what dog can wield a club?  So now we have a murder.  Among the suspects: Ellie’s brother Geoffrey Lewis (who happens to be a lefty) and even the doctor himself who not only knows Ellie was pregnant – he was the daddy!  Oh and there’s rich Bradford Dillman who just seems guilty of something!  But why all the bite marks?  Soon, a werewolf – yes, a werewolf emerges to take out some of our leading players – but now Janssen has to figure out who the werewolf really is and how the heck to deal with such a creature!  Janssen plays all this cool, emotionless and with an accent that sometimes comes and goes – but effectively.  Not bad, actually good of its time and era.
