The Wolfman

Continuity mistake: The chunks of ice in the asylum dunking scene appear and disappear. When Lawrence is brought to the surface, he has two chucks of ice on him that fall off leaving none, but when the shot cuts to him being raised and locked upright, there's a chunk of ice on his right arm. A minute later when he's lowered again into the tank, there's a large chuck by his hip but vanishes when the shot switches showing Lawrence's left side.

Factual error: Sir John claims to have removed the gunpowder from the silver bullet four bore cartridges. However, he had not removed the primers, thus there would not have been a mere click from the falling hammers but a most definite bang from the primers. Furthermore, in some calibers the pressure from the primers may actually be enough to propel the bullets even without gunpowder.

Character mistake: Sir John describes St. Columbanus as a gypsy from the East, but in fact St. Columbanus was Irish and founded one of the first monasteries in Scotland (on Iona island), one of the most important in Christendom.

Trivia: Makeup artist Rick Baker has a cameo appearance in this film. He's the man who whistles to his comrades who are approaching the gypsy camp then a few seconds later, gets killed by the werewolf.

Dr. Hoenneger: Now, we are all aware that Mr. Talbot has suffered quite traumatic personal experiences. He witnessed his mother's self mutilations. His young mind, unable to accept it, created a fantastical truth, that his father is to blame. That his father is literally a monster. [Turns to Lawrence.] But, your father is not a werewolf. You were not bitten by a werewolf. You will not become a werewolf, any more than I will sprout wings and fly out of that window.

Sir John Talbot: I don't think they'll kill you, Lawrence. But they will blame you. The beast will have it's day. The beast will out.

More quotes from The Wolfman


Question: In the Director's Cut, was the conversation that Lawrence had with the old man a dream or did it really happen? Lawrence dropped his wallet then put it in his bag and the old man offered to give Lawrence his cane, but he politely declines. After waking up, the old man is gone but his cane is there, and Lawrence's wallet is back on the floor on the same spot.

Chosen answer: It really happened. The discrepancies are meant to show Lawrence's mental state.

Question: When Lawrence follows Sir John into the crypt, why was he carrying a rifle?

Chosen answer: He must have felt he needed it for protection.
