In 1913, Universal Studios released a silent film, The Werewolf, based on an 1898 short story about Native Canadian wolf-humans who terrorized white settlers. This movie is believed to be the first to draw from werewolf lore. Since then, films have taken various approaches to lycanthropes, or werewolves. This absorbing narrative examines people's fascination with werewolves in movies, television series, and literature. Besides werewolf myths, readers consider the special effects, makeup, acting, and impact of major werewolf productions, from the Hollywood monster classic The Wolf Man (1941) to the Twilight and Harry Potter movies and beyond.
