I was expecting rather more from this 80s vampire tale from Poland but perhaps my experience was affected by some of the worst subtitles I have encountered. Clearly a labour of love for some amateur film buff but not just sweet mistakes like 'bumpkin' instead of 'peasant' but whole sections in the wrong tense with some events being anticipated when they were actually references to past happenings. Very confusing. Then there was all the fighting and presumably defending of the homeland. Along with all this was a fairly simple tale involving curses, a wolf, rather a lot of blood and a silver bullet, oh and some rather extreme gore right at the end. Snowy landscapes looked attractive but far too much talking in boring looking rooms.
