Curse of the Werewolf

Bourgault du Coudray Chantal

Half-man half-myth, the werewolf has over the years infiltrated popular culture in many strange and varied shapes, from Gothic horror to the body horror films of the 1980s and todays graphic novels. Yet despite enormous critical interest in myths and in monsters, from vampires to cyborgs, the figure of the werewolf has been strangely overlooked. Embodying our primal fears - of anguished masculinity, of the beast within - the werewolf, argues Bourgault du Coudray, has revealed in its various lupine guises radically shifting attitudes to the human psyche.
Tracing the werewolfs use by anthropologists and criminologists and shifting interpretations of the figure - from the scientific to the mythological and psychological - Bourgault du Coudray also sees the werewolf in Freuds wolf-man case and in the sinister use of wolf imagery in Nazism. The Curse of the Werewolf looks finally at the werewolfs revival in contemporary fantasy, where she finds in this supposedly conservative genre a fascinating new model of the humans relationship to nature. Required reading for students of fantasy, myth and monsters - and no self-respecting werewolf should be without it.

This all-Benjamin Frankel film music disc headlines Hammer's Curse of the Werewolf, which clocking in at 34mins is barely longer than the equally grim 31 min score for The Prisoner, a 1955 film based on a then well known stage play rumoured to be based upon the true life case of the Hungarian Cardinal Mindszenty who spent many years imprisoned by the Communist regime there.
