Werewolves do not exist. They do not exist!
24 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the 9th of 13 films in the Hombre Lobo series featuring the eternally cursed Waldemar Daninsky played by Paul Naschy. His work will soon be much more well known as Fangoria is releasing Werewolf, a brand new, fully painted series of graphic novels based on the film series and its title character.

Vampires versus werewolves. The vampire, Elisabeth Bathory (Julia Saly) controls the werewolf Waldemar Daninsky (Paul Naschy) until they are executed in the 18th century. Two grave robbers (Ricardo Palacios & Rafael Hernández) remove the silver cross from Waldemar and he comes alive, free of the Countess.

Meanwhile, three women (Silvia Aguilar, Azucena Hernández & Pilar Alcón) are searching for the Countess' grave.

While Erika (Aguilar) and Barbara (Alcón) are preparing to revive the Countess, Karen (Hernández) is falling in love with Waldemar. He needs her to kill him to remove his curse.

Erika even sacrifices her friend in the ritual to gain power. Meanwhile, Waldemar is heavily snacking as it is a full moon.

The Countess even manges to use Waldemar's servant Mircalla (Beatriz Elorrieta) to attack him, but Karen is right there to save the day. Too bad, he wasn't there for her.

The next full moon brings forth the battle. Rock breaks scissors, and paper covers rock, and all is well.

Good acting, and a high quality DVD.
