In the Nineteenth Century, when a werewolf slaughters the dwellers of a small town, a group of bounty hunters commanded by Charles arrive in town and negotiate a higher reward. The apprentice of medicine Daniel, who is the protégé of the local doctor, joins the group and provides information about the beast that is intelligent and kills not only on the full moon, but also on the previous and the next days. Soon the gypsy leader invites Charles and Daniel and explains that in the solstice, the wolf-like creature will be able to control his transformation at will. Therefore they have only two days to discover who the beast among them is and destroy it. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Did You Know?


The bolt action rifle used by some of the hunters is a Mosin Nagant. These were first produced in Imperial Russia from 1891 until the 1940s by the USSR and were also used in limited numbers by other Eastern European nations (including Finland). This places the time period of this film sometime after 1891. See more »


After they blow the zombie's head off, they pull out a flame thrower and burn the body. Flame throwers of that type weren't in use until the 20th century. See more »

Nice little movie
19 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

Nothing special, but more than a decent effort. Plus a few good actors are thrown into the mix. Stephen Rea being one of them. Acting is good overall. Nice make-up FX and nice story support that. There is not too much blood mind you and no nudity (just in case you were looking especially for those things, either because they interest you or appall you).

You can't or shouldn't compare this with a big budget movie though. It's what it's supposed to be: A nice little snack, an appetizer let's say, no pun intended. It is predictable and does not really make a secret of one of the (supposedly) big mysteries of the movie, but it still works nice enough
