I seem to recall seeing something like that as a kid, in black and white, and I can't recall the title or the actors.

I think the creature dies in the end (falls from some height?) and turns back into human form.

Anyone know what movie that might be?


PS. I think the X-Files made a spoof of it later, but with a man that turned into a salamander or lizard.

Yes I remember it, but like yourself can't recall its title.

Black Castle sticks in the mind, but that may be something else.

Possibly "The Maze", from 1953

I think that might be it! I don't know why but I think it did have a maze of some sort.

Thanks, guys!!!


EDIT That's exactly it. Bravo, gents.

The X-files episode was a reverse lycanthrope.

An animal gets bit by a human and transforms, taking on all the impulses, emotions, hungers and drives of a human, feeling compelled to find a job and get into debt, etc.

It was quite clever.

Hmm. This is the episode I mean (season 8, episode 19):




Mardaddy02 Jan 2018 8:49 a.m. PST

Oh, my bad, with so many episodes out there, I got hung up on the most recent ones!

From what I see, that is not a 'movie'. It is the highest expression of pure cinematic art! ….especially the bounce off the railing…..

Cacique Caribe02 Jan 2018 12:36 p.m. PST

LOL. That one scene definitely left an impression on me as a kid. :)


CAPTAIN BEEFHEART02 Jan 2018 5:00 p.m. PST

…and on the giant frog!

I'm sorry that I knew this but Clarence "Frogman" Henry came to mind:
