With 250 entries, this updated filmography and resource is the
encyclopedic guide to all things lycanthropic and a fascinating
compendium of comparative mythology and folklore. Delving into the
15th century to uncover the origins of the werewolf legend, it is
an eye-opening, blood-pounding tour through the ages, landing on
the doorstep of creatures like hirsute mass-murderer Albert Fish,
Michael Lupo (Lupo is "wolf" in Italian), and Fritz Haarman who
slaughtered and ate his victimsÂ selling the leftovers as steaks
and roasts in his butcher shop. The photos and drawings provide
hair-raising evidence of strange and obsessional behavior through
the centuries, and a helpful chronology of lycanthropic activities
dates back 140,000 years to the first mixing of human and lupine
blood. Werewolf hunters of all ages will appreciate the detailed
section on slaying the beast, while potential victims will find the
information on detecting and warding away the occasional wayward
wolfman more to their immediate likingÂ if not need.
