Merlin above as WEREWOLF HITLER. Streaming on Netflix

Ghastly highlight... the spindly, sonorous Jesse Merlin
shines as a lecherous medical school professor.

Catherine Rampell, New York Times

Jesse Merlin as Dr. Carl Hill, the headless antagonist,
devours any scene he's in.

William Moore, London Evening Standard

Jesse Merlin as President Dodgeson is just a
ring-tailed wonder: Stephen Colbert with
Ray Bolger's limbs and Alfred Drake's baritone.

Robert Verini, Variety Magazine

Comic highlight... executed with dazzling precision...
Merlin - like a magician doing close-up work - offered
a wonderfully transparent tour de force.

Joshua Kosman, San Francisco Chronicle
