London, the 1970's: For their honeymoon, Imre (José Marco) and Justine (Shirley Corrigan) plan to travel to Transylvania, because he wants to visit his parents grave. But unfortunately, he is killed by bandits right at the grave, then the hoods want to gangrape Justine ... when Waldemar Daninsky (Paul Naschy) interferes, kills two of the attackers, chases the others away, and takes unconscious Justine with him to his castle, the Black Castle. At first, Justine is frightened to death by her saviour, but eventually, the two fall in love. Thing is, Waldemar has this condition that makes him turn into a werewolf every full moon ...

Meanwhile, the bandits decide to have their revenge on Daninsky and plan to raid his castle the next night - but unfortunately, it's a full moon, and so all of the gangsters but their leader Otvos (Luis Induni) are killed by Waldemar the werewolf. Otvos though is not one to give up too easily, and he soon turns to the citizens of the next village for help, who have long lived in fear of Daninsky, and organizes an angry mob. And to give them some much-needed courage, he beheads Daninsky's old maid (Elsa Zabala) and shows her head to his mob.

Ultimately, Daninsky and Justine plan to leave for England just before the mob arrives, but for some reason, Otvos has gotten ahead of the mob and now tries to kill Daninsky on his own - but fails, and Daninsky has to kill him in self-defense.

Back in London, Justine makes Daninsky acquainted with Dr Jekyll (Jack Taylor), probably the only man who can help Daninsky, and after Daninsky has proven to him he really is a werewolf by killing a bunch of people (among them a nurse he was locked in in an elevator with), Jekyll really agrees to help - he plans to inject him with the serum that turned his ancestor into Mr Hyde just when he's about to turn into the werewolf, and once the two evil creatures fight, Hyde is sure to win out over the werewolf - and then Daninsky/Hyde gets the antidote and turns back into plain old Daninsky, with no more lycanthropy ...

In theory, that would work fine (or would it), but unfortunately, Jekyll has a jealous assistant, Sandra (Mirta Miller), who stabs Jekyll just after he has given Daninsky the antidote, then injects Jekyll with more Mr Hyde-serum ... and she actually thinks she can control him once he's Hyde.

At first, she really has control over Hyde, who shows great pleasure in whipping Justine, the woman Daninsky once loved, but then Sandra starts bossing him around ... and he cold-bloodedly kills her, then takes off to Soho to pick up prostitutes and murder them, you know the routine.

Meanwhile, Jekyll has not yet quite died, and he tells Justine to destroy the serums as well as his notes about the serum so Daninsky can never again turn into hide, and then shoot Daninsky with silver bullets once he has turned into the werewolf once more.

In the end, Hyde really turns back to Daninsky, then into a werewolf - and all in a discotheque - kills a few more people, then comes back home to Justine - who eventually shoots him, but not before he has invlicted a fatal wound onto her ... and ultimately, the two unlucky lovers die hand in hand.

 

One thing up front, the idea of merging the Jekyll and Hyde- and the werewolf-concept is pretty much as silly as it's unnecessary, because the two concepts are based on pretty much the same idea, a tragic split personality, one side good, one side evil, with the evil winning in the end.

The resulting movie is pretty much as silly as the idea makes it sound to be, at times it's even hilarious, and it's not at all helped by the pseudo-scientific explanations Jack Taylor gives along the way, nor by the fact that Hyde for some reasons chooses to wear a turn-of-the-century top hat and cape to prowl 1970's London ... but all that makes it enjoyable Euro-trash in an unintentionally funny way. And thanks to director León Klimowsky, who is one of the most underrated directors of the genre, it's at least competently staged and features quite a number of atmospheric shots.

Of course, if you choose to take the film seriously, you'll quite simply hate it, but if you want to have some fun and have a few beers with it, you might just as well enjoy it ...
