Can you call a movie a monster movie if it contains no monster? Universal marketed She-Wolf of London as a horror movie, and for a
while it looks set to deliver. Phyllis Allenby ( future Lassie and Lost in Space mom June Lockhart ), a soon-to-be-married Londoner,
fears a family curse has led her to commit a series of werewolf murders. Eventually, however, she discovers shes not in a horror
movie at all but a variation on Gaslight ( a hit two years earlier ). Phyllis may feel relieved, but viewers will likely feel ripped
off by the bait-and-switch, especially since the mystery proves pretty dull and predictable.
