Face of the Screaming Werewolf ★½ La Casa Del Terror; House of Terror 1959

Originally a Mexican horror/comedy that was bought for U.S. distribution by Jerry Warren, who earned his spot in the horror hall of fame with “The Incredible Petrified World” and “Teenage Zombies.” A scientist brings a mummy back to life, but when he removes the bandages (gasp), the subject turns out to be of the canine persuasion. Suffers from comic evisceration; not much to scream about. 60m/B VHS . MX Lon Chaney Jr., Landa Varle, Raymond Gaylord; D: Gilberto Martinez Solares, Jerry Warren.
