The Wolf Man: A Good One #124

I love The Wolf Man, and I've seen it many times. However, I've only watched it for fun and never really with a critical eye. Why would I want to? I don't want to suddenly see problems in a classic iconic film that I love. I'll never be able to unsee them. Well, it's too late now. The Wolf Man has great sets, lots of fog and atmosphere, and crypts and coffins. Unfortunately, it also has some camera shadows, a moment of lens flare, plot inconsistencies, and two wooden performances in Lon Chaney, Jr. and Bela Lugosi. I still love it, though, because I'm a sucker for the Universal Monsters, and I give it a passing grade. I watched it on Netflix Instant Streaming. Here's a trailer:
