what a great idea. badly executed. the best big game hunter in the world tries to kill a werewolf. seems to me like he was one of the worst shots, let alone one of the worst hunters in the world. not once did he use his skills, relying on everyone else around him to do the work for him, and he could just walk in for the kill. wheres the honour in killing your foe with a machine gun? i sat and watched as a film i'd wanted to see went plodding along until the end(though the ending was quite good). a weak film with some 'jazzy' music. what would terence fisher have done with it? made it fun at least. for once, a remake might do this idea justice. and make it scary this time, darnit!

The beast must die...sighReviewed byct_galvinVote: 5/10
The Beast must Dies (1974) was an interesting version of the tired werewolf tale. Calvin Lockhart is the main character and for a change he's a wealthy black big game hunter who wants to catch his biggest prize to date, a werewolf. He brings several suspected individuals to his palacial complex and plays Ten Little Indians with the guests. They're an odd lot and anyone of them can be....The Werewolf!!! The movies also an interactive one because at the beginning of the feature, an off screen narrator asks if you can solve the mystery. The great Peter Cushing guest stars and brings some British Horror credibility to the film.
From those lovable people at Amicus. Whilst Hammer Films was in it's death throes as a film company, Amicus for a time picked up the slack. Several key members from the Hammer Studios left the company and eagerly worked for the rivals at Amicus. Famous for their omnibus tales of terror, they tried something different and the result was "The Beast Must Die". Not your typical film about werewolves but it's entertaining despite the low budgeted special effects and bad night time lighting. Other than that, it's a great film.
First off this was a movie I saw very young, I can still remember seeing it at a neighbors house during the mid 70's on a Saturday afternoon matinée and it scared the s*** out of me. The thing is I never saw it again growing up till about 5 years ago because I had forgotten the name of it. All I could remember was the werewolf break and every time I tried to find the name of it by mentioning it to coworkers they looked at me like I was insane and was making it up. So I set forth on my task on finding a copy just to make sure I didn't dream up the whole thing, checking at a lot of second hand stores looking thru videos for any werewolf movie and reading the synopsis on the back trying to figure out the name to this movie I looked and looked and finally while going thru some video's at a video store came across the title The Beast Must Die. Thinking that's probably not it either till I read the back of the box, look out for the werewolf break. I was ecstatic to say the least I found it awesome. I bought it right then and there took it home made some popcorn and sat down to watch it thinking it might still scare me as it did as when I was younger. As I watched it I felt I was transported back to when I first saw it at a young age. It did not frighten me as it did when I was young but it somehow filled a void in my life for horror movies and how much fun they can be. This was five years ago and this has become one of my all time favorite movies. I give it 10 stars because I think it deserves it the entire cast works well together and from beginning to end the movie is just a lot of fun. Peter Cushing is great in just about everything he's ever done and because of this little gem I just love some of the horror movies from the company that made this, Amicus is there name and there responsible for a lot of the horror anthologies that came out in the early 70's TALES FROM THE CRYPT, THE HOUSE THAT DRIPPED BLOOD, ASYLUM. Oh and just to let you know a special edition DVD came out for this title and I highly recommend the DVD it shows the movie in widescreen and even shows a little more blood that was edited out of that old VHS copy I found. I still have it just for keeps though.
