Description by OLDIES.com:
A walk through the woods turns into a night of terror when Mary is grabbed by a pair of powerful hairy claws. A monstrous man-beast tears at her throat in a bloodbath of screaming terror! The discovery of her mutilated body sends shock waves through the nearby girl's reformatory. Recently joining the staff of the school is Julian Olcott, a professor with a medical background and a questionable past. There are many other suspicious characters to be found, including Mr. Swift, who runs the academy, his associate Lenore and Walter, the sinister caretaker.
The girls are distraught over Mary's violent death and one student, Priscilla, is determined to solve the ghastly mystery. She believes that Mary was involved in some kind of blackmail plot and that her death was an act of murder. Meanwhile, the townspeople have begun setting traps for the wolves they believe are responsible for the killing. One night Priscilla is assaulted by the same frightening monster that killed Mary. She narrowly escapes death and flees for safety into the arms of the very person who may well be the vicious campus killer!
Originally called Lycanthropus, the sensationally re-titled Werewolf In A Girls' Dormitory was an eerie European production dubbed in English for release on a double-bill with Boris Karloff's Corridors Of Blood in the U.S. With ferocious wolfman make-up, including extra long fangs and drooling saliva, and a bevy of pretty girls, Werewolf In a Girls' Dormitory is an atmospheric, monster-laden whodunnit. The film also features Polish actress Barbara Lass, Roman Polanski's first wife.
The girls in a creepy, isolated reform school wonder if the cute new teacher is the werewolf terrorizing campus.
