Were-Panthers of London

Another totally true “NOW” story from the insidious London underground! And from the January-February 1953 issue of Skeleton Hand #3.

THIS STORY I KNOW IS BASED ON A REAL ENGLISH CULT. SOMEWHERE I READ SOMETHING ON LEOPARD PEOPLE AND PANTHER CULTS.

Also from wikipedia:

Assertions that any type of "werecat" truly exist and have an origin in supernatural or religious realities have been common for centuries, with these beliefs often being hard to entirely separate from folklore. In the nineteenth century, occultist J.C. Street asserted that material cat and dog transformations could be produced by manipulating the "ethereal fluid" that human bodies are supposedly floating in. The non-official Catholic witch-hunting manual, the Malleus Maleficarum, asserted that witches can turn into cats, but that their transformations are illusions created by demons. New Age author John Perkins asserted that every person has the ability to shapeshift into "jaguars, bushes or any other form" by using mental power. Occultist Rosalyn Greene claims that werecats called "cat shifters" exist as part of a "shifter subculture" or underground New Age religion based on lycanthropy and related beliefs.

Fun, and educational!

Of course the "exotic female witch doctor" looks a little Nordic to me... But I guess for some people, Swedes are 'exotic'. :)

And seriously, how was this NOT a Hammer film in the 70s? :)
