The Wolfman

The Wolfman is an adaptation of the 1940s classic in which an American man is cursed from a bite from a werewolf. Starring Anthony Hopkins and Benico del Toro, directed by Joe Johnston.

The transformations that turned Chatsworth into a neglected horror scene required months of preparation and planning, around 200 crew members and five weeks of filming. With mud smeared on the windows, vines and creepers draped from the roof, crumbling statues in the grounds and rough moorland turf over the lawns, the house became almost unrecognisable. The dome on the house and the architectural damage were then added after filming using CGI.

The scene where the house is on fire at the end of the film was actually a 24 foot tall scale model set on fire.
