Cast and crew

The Wolfman starred Anthony Hopkins and Benico del Toro, and was 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.

The house transformed

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 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.
