After some gruesome killings in the park near her house, that are said to be committed by a female werewolf, young heiress Phyllis thinks that it might be her who turns into a werewolf at night (attributing it all to a family curse). Her step-aunt & housekeeper Martha (Sara Haden) pretends to calm her, but it's rather obvious that she's playing some evil ghame with the girl's mind being envious of her inheritance.

As the murders go on, with the police not having a clue, Phyllis finds more & more evidence that points to herself, and, thinking herself a menace even breaks off any contact with her fiancé Barry (Don Porter). He is understandably miffed & decides to watch the entrance of Phyllis' house one night, & really, he sees a female figure leave, & soon afterwards attack a man, but he & some police constables patrolling the park chase her away.

Soon afterwards, Carol (Jan Wiley) arrives on the scene, & the man who was attacked turns out to be Dwight (Martin Kossleck), her penniless lover (who is of course despised by her mother). Barry immediately suspects Carol of being the real she-wolf, but there is not sufficient evidence to hold her ...

Back at Phyllis home, Phyllis decides to let Carol in on her secret - that she is the she-wolf - but Carol, upon seeing the evidence, immediately sees it's all ahoax & goes to the police ... much to the dismay of her mother, who is of course the real she-wolf, & she now sees only one way out - to kill Phyllis & make it look like suicide. Unfrotunately though she loudly announces what she's planning to do, and chambermaid Hanna (Eily Malyon), who has just happened to be eavesdropping, can step in just in time & save poor Phyllis from certaion death. Martha, being faced with changed priorities, now decides to kill Hannah first, but when running after her falls down a stairway & right into her own knife.

The police, alarmed by Carol, can only collect the corpse & close the case ...


A late entry into the Universal horror cycle (not that such a cycle ever consciously or officially existed back in the 40's), She-Wolf of London is a very poor horror-werewolf-whodunnit, that pretty much presents the whole case (including the solution) within the first 10 minutes - when Martha explains to her daughter that Phyllis is a rich heiress while she & her daughter are poor - & then takes another 50+ minutes to not leave the path once taken in the slightest, but at the same time making no efforts in producing any kind of atmopsphere let alone suspense.

& despite the fetchy title, there is not one she-wolf, werewolf, or any other kind of wolf in sight (there are a few dogs in the movie, though), & Jack Pierce's job as head make-up man was obviously reduced to make the humans look ... well, human.
