Cast: George Zucco

Dr. Cameron (George Zucco) is a mad scientist who develops a serum that turns his dim-witted gardener into a savage werewolf. Seeking revenge against the scientists who mocked his research, he sends the werewolf out to kill them. A young newspaper reporter shows up as a love interest for the doctor's daughter, and he begins to suspect that Cameron is up to no good. The werewolf eventually turns on his creator and everything goes up in flames during a freak lightning storm.

This low budget horror film has nothing to offer other than a solidly mediocre performance from the charismatic George Zucco. The pacing is tedious and the werewolf makeup is poor.
