Unfortunately, intolerance and slander always triumph over the wisdom of the just.
31 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The 10th in the series of werewolf films written and directed by and starring Paul Naschy as Count Waldemar Daninsky.

The film starts with the curse being placed on Irineus Daninsky's family, and all his descendants, by a sorceress, and then moves to the late 1500s, where the Count is trying to remove it.

He consults suspected witches (Violeta Cela) and warlocks (Conrado San Martín), just one step from the Inquisition, as they are Jews who follow Kaballah. Sadly, certain bigots can't wait and kill Salom Jehuda (San Martin) before he finishes, but he lives long enough to send the Count to Japan.

It is fortunate for us that the Japanese all speak Spanish.

The Count appears as a werewolf in Japan before he finds Kian (Shigeru Amachi) for help. It is Kian that finds him by following his wolfman tracks.

This may not be a Japanese Samurai film in the tradition of Kurosawa and Toshirô Mifune, but there are ninjas and great swordfights and costumes nonetheless. We even get to observe Seppuku.

Kian fails, and they consult Satomi (Junko Asahina), a sorceress. But, Esther (Cela) is suspicious, as she should be.

Science is replaced by magic as Kian goes to kill the werewolf. But it is Akane (Yôko Fuji) that fulfills the ritual.

With the wolfman dead, how will we have three more movies in the series? Most enjoyable of all the films I have seen in this series.
