Wolf Blood (1925) – A Werewolf Film

Though this has previously been posted on the OGOM facebook site, I thought it was too good not to share here as well. This is a very interesting blog post on the earliest surviving werewolf film, Wolf Blood (1925). The earliest werewolf film featured a female werewolf and was called The Werewolf (1913). Based on ‘The Werewolves’ (1898) by Henry Beaugrand, this is not considered to be a ‘lost’ film.

As the blog points out, both Wolf Blood and The Werewolf  were set in Canada and are influenced by rural French folklore regarding the loup-garou. For those who are interested in seeing this movie, it can be found on ‘The Public Domain Review’. A perfect Halloween treat!
