A best horror film about a Werewolf filmed in Argentine.

One of the best argentine´sci-fi films about a cursed man, Nazareno Cruz, that when he falls in love he is going to transforming in a hungry wolf. The movie has a lot of beautiful images with excelents special effects. With Alfredo Alcón as the devil that shows to Nazareno a false paradise to live and try to taking with him.
