Based on the popular manga series Wolf Guy by Kazusmasa Hirai, this mixture of horror and martial arts revolves around Akira Inugami. The lone survivor of a clan of werewolves, Akira relies on his feral, full-moon activated supernatural powers to solve crimes as “Wolf Guy”. When a bizarre murder takes place on the streets of Tokyo, he comes face to face with bizarre characters and a secret organization that is out to get his powers. Wolf Guy: Enraged Lycanthrope (1975) would go on to be a major influence on Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange (1971). Presented in Japanese with English subtitles.
