WEREWOLF BY NIGHT Official Listing Confirms Classic Horror Era Influence

A new listing for Marvel Studios' Werewolf by Night has confirmed which era of classic horror films inspired the upcoming Disney+ Halloween Special...

We got a first look at some footage from Werewolf By Night during Marvel Studios' recent D23 presentation via a stylish, surprisingly gory trailer, and a new listing for the Halloween Special has now been shared online.

According to the official Disney documentation (via MCU Direct), the episode is inspired by "horror films of the 1930s and 1940s," which shouldn't come as much of a surprise to any classic horror fan out there who happened to check out the teaser. Though not specifically named, some of the most popular films of the era include The Wolfman (obviously), Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Dracula, Werewolf of London, and The Mummy's Tomb.

A recent Disney+ listing categorized Werewolf by Night as a comedy, which led to speculation that the campier elements of the trailer might be at the forefront of the special. But the new logline concludes with an assurance that this special will "evoke a sense of dread and the macabre, with plenty of suspense and scares along the way as we explore a new corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe."

While the likes of Moon Knight and the Doctor Strange movies have included horror elements, Werewolf By Night looks like it's going to be Marvel Studios' first full-on foray into the genre. The black-and-white teaser gives of an old-school, grindhouse creature feature vibe, as a group of monster hunters come to realize that a member of the team is one of the very beasts they've been pursuing.

Have another look at the footage below.

Though very little has been officially revealed about this "Special Presentation," based on what we see here, there's a very good chance the extensive plot leak that did the rounds earlier this year was accurate.

Werewolf By Night will premiere on Disney+ just in time for Halloween on October 7.
