Wonder why this was not included in the SON OF SHOCK package?



Seems like it fit the bill. Rights issues, perhaps?


Butt out of this or I’ll strip the hide off your cherry picker!

Not good or original enough is my best guess, as with you, rights issues. Universal had a corner on werewolves, it seems, and while their Famous Monsters were all copyrighted werewolves were fair game (as it were), so while Columbia couldn't have a Chaney style wolfman they could experiment with other kinds, made a fair job of it.
