Face of the Screaming Werewolf is a 1964 horror film created by occasional film maker Jerry Warren from parts of two unrelated Mexican horror films plus two sets of footage which he shot himself at different times. It was released theatrically on a double-bill with Warren's similarly constructed Curse of the Stone Hand.
A psychic woman leads archaeologists into an Aztec pyramid where they discover two mummies, one of which turns out to be werewolf (Lon Chaney, Jr.). A mad scientist revives the werewolf-mummy, which terrorizes the city, while the second, Aztec mummy also comes to life and goes after the psychic.
Jerry Warren used for this film pieces from two Mexican horror films, La Casa del Terror (1959) and La Momia Azteca (1957), along with scenes he shot himself for Attack of the Mayan Mummy (also based on La Momia Azteca), plus some more footage shot especially for this title.

The film's lack of story cohesion inspired a surrealist novel of the same title by Ken Gage, published in 2006, which uses imagery and dialogue from the film to tell a strange story involving Satan's war in heaven, robots, sadomasochistic vampires, the nature of elitism, and aliens (mostly from the planet Venus).
