1910. In a remote village, a terrible curse has fallen on the evil Marchioness of Marino and her son – transforming him into a blood-thirsty werewolf who preys on the residents of the village. One hundred years on, Thomas, the only male descendent of the Marino family, returns home to a warm welcome from the villagers but things aren’t quite what they seem.
