WOLF GUY
URUFU GAI: MOERO ÔKAMI-OTOKO
1975, AGFA, 86 min, Japan, Dir: Kazuhiko Yamaguchi

This Toei Studios-produced adaptation of the Kazumasa Hirai manga features action star Shinichi "Sonny" Chiba in the title role, an enraged, last-of-his-kind lycanthrope who uses his powers to solve crimes. Justly legendary, WOLF GUY mashes up horror, martial arts and cop movies to daze viewers into submission with a barrage of spectral tiger attacks, surgical experiments, government conspiracies and ’70s funk sounds.
