Maddy is one of Metro's FOH employees and, in her own words, she chose the film because: "The Wolf Man is an incredible picture from 1941, and in my opinion, it’s one of the greatest horror films in existence. Larry Talbot (Lon Chaney Jr.) doesn’t know what he’s getting himself into when he returns to his home town and ends up killing a wolf (but not so much a wolf as a human/wolf) with his silver cane. Gypsies, antique shops, father/son dynamic, and the ever-amazing Claude Rains are featured in The Wolf Man. Safe to say, it’s a treat.

Constantly seeking out old horror, I first watched the Wolf Man when I was 15 years old, and it’s a film that I still hold with the highest regard. It has a sense of nostalgia for me both because of the age of the film and my own age when I first got to experience the majesty and wonderfulness of the movie. Not to mention, with Lon Chaney, Claude Rains and Bela Lugosi together in one movie, all that could become of it is excellence."
