Hollywood has made dozens of movies on Werewolves. The most notable movie was ‘The Wolfman’ and ‘An American Werewolf in London’. Author Ruskin Bond’s short story – Eyes of a Cat gives you a glimpse at the shape shifting creature. In the short story, a school going girl transforms into a blood-thirty leopard and kills her strict teacher. Isn’t that scary? Even C.A. Kincaid’s scary stories – The Panther People & The Werewolf were about shape shifting creatures who can transform into panther or werewolf. All the stories are set in India. So, did Werewolves exist in India? The 1991 movie – Junoon was also about a man turning into a tiger due to a supernatural curse. Movie ‘Junoon’ was highly inspired by Hollywood movies like ‘The Cat People’ and ‘An American Werewolf in London’.
