Waiting for Halloween: "The Beast Must Die"







The beast must die 
La notte del licantropo
by Paul Annett
(1974)








[ENG]
The story is very simple: eight people spend the weekend in a mansion while their host is trying to find out which one of them is a werewolf to kill it. 
Nothing special really, but the film has a 30-seconds "Werewolf Break" near the end, so the audience can put together the evidences to try to find out who the werewolf is before the ending (like a game). 
As the tagline says: "One of these eight people will turn into a werewolf. Can you guess who it is when we stop the film for the Werewolf Break? See it ... solve it ... but don't tell!"

[ITA]
La storia è molto semplice: otto persone passano il weekend in una villa mentre il loro ospite cerca di scoprire chi tra di loro è un lupo mannaro con lo scopo di ucciderlo.
Niente di speciale in realtà, ma verso la fine del film c'è una "Pausa del Licantropo" di 30 secondi in modo da permettere agli spettatori di riflettere sugli indizi e cercare di scoprire chi è il lupo mannaro prima del finale (una specie di gioco).
Come dice la tagline: "Uno di queste otto persone si trasformerà in un licantropo. Riesci ad indovinare chi quando il film si fermerà per la Pausa del Licantropo? Guarda... risolvi... ma non parlare!"
