The year is 1974, the sleepy town is Hemlock-Under-Lye and when werewolf attacks threaten tea-time, there’s only one person you can call.
He Had Hairy Hands is a multi-award-winning, critically-acclaimed comedy by Kill the Beast; a 1970’s detective werewolf mystery wrapped up in a hilarious Hammer Horror.
