The Werewolf of Washington (1973)

An American horror comedy written, directed and edited by Milton Moses Ginsberg.
A journalist is sent to Budapest, Hungary at his request where he is bitten by a werewolf. Upon his return to Washington, he tries to warn his co-workers about this and is ignored.
It seemed low-budget and TROMAish, but there were some good things about it. The camera-work was great and they used focus and depth of field very effectively. The plot was very clear and most of the characters fit into it nicely. There was a midget doctor who was in the basement of the pentagon, working on a Frankenstein who didn't really fit into the plot. If I was making this, I would have included an Urotsukidoji style sex scene with the president's daughter and the transformed werewolf. The female "black panther" character definitely dressed to earn female anatomy points! The sitcomness of the humor being everyone ignoring the main character's warnings got old fast and wasn't very funny. I rate this o.k. and I think that it is meant to be mocked.
