Royal Hungary, the 17th century: Ireneus Daninsky (Paul Naschy) condemns infamous Countess Elizabeth Bathory (Maria Silva) and her killer brood to death - but not before she puts a curse on his descendants ...

Fast forward to the 19th century, when Daninsky's descendant Waldemar (Paul Naschy again) almost runs over Ilona (Inés Morales) with his coach. He takes her to his home to nurse her back to health, and the two soon fall in love - the thing is though that Ilona belongs to a witches coven hell-bent on avenging Elizabeth Bathory, and one night, while Waldemar is sleeping, she has him bitten by a wolf's skull - which in return turns Waldemar into a werewolf ...

Divine justice sees to it though that Ilona is soon killed by Janos, your friendly neighbourhood serialkiller ...

Soon, Waldemar starts to kill as his werewolf self, but as serialkiller Janos is still on the loose, everybody claims the slayings on him, even Waldemar himself.

Engineer Wilowa (Eduardo Calvo) moves to Waldemar's neighbourhood with his two lovely daughters Kinga (Fabiola Falcón) and Maria (Maritza Olivares), and while Waldemar immediately falls in love with Kinga - and she with him -, Maria will stop at nothing to get him into her panties ... but when she tries to lure him into a house in the woods, she is almost killed by Janos, whom Waldemar chases away at literally the last moment - only to then turn into a werewolf and kill her himself. Later that night he also kills engineer Wilowa, who has set out to kill Maria's killer himself.

Of all people, Waldemar can only confide in Maria, who is sympathetic even though he has killed her father and sister, and ultimately he hands her the silver dagger with which to kill him ...

Meanwhile, in the village the dead body of Janos is found, and it seems he has died some time ago - which means the killings must have been committed by somebody else, and it doesn't take the villagers long to figure it must have been Waldemar who's really a werewolf ...

The whole thing ends with a mob of villagers with torches hunting Waldemar as his werewolf self down, but ultimately it's of course Maria who kills her lover with the silver dagger ...


Despite delivering the usual amount of brutal killings, gore and nudity, this is one of the weaker films of the Hombre Lobo-series, mainly because on one hand the script seems to move about a bit too much and lacks the stringency a straight-forward horror story like this would badly need, and on the other hand, the film is less than well paced, which means it lacks a proper build-up of tension, and ever so often the film is nothing short of boring.

Still, it's a fun 1970's Euro shocker that can easily be enjoyed if in the right mood - just keep in mind there are better ones out there.
