Storyline

Sometime in the Middle Ages. The young duke Eduardo, heir to the throne, is cursed. Every night he changes into a horrible looking monster. An alchemist, killed by Eduardos father, is responsible for this curse. Only a woman who loves Eduardo can overcome it. But Eduardos fiance Althea suffers a shock when she sees him as the monster. Eduardos brother, Prince Bruno, who has also ambitions to follow his father on the throne, stirs up the villagers to kill Eduardo. Then, one night, the mob catches Eduardo...

Horrible
26 June 2003 | by (Wauconda, Illinois) – See all my reviews

Talyor the Beauty and Damon the Beast in this terrible ripoff. It would be better off if this film was not filmed at all, or if it was flushed down the can. Mark Damon's acting was horrible, and the soundtrack sounded like a chainsaw. But I'll give it 1(half)out of 10, because I feel sorry for it.
