Spain's leading horror star, Jacinto Molina (alias "Paul Naschy") makes his seventh appearance as the cursed werewolf Waldemar Daninsky in this creepy entry from director Carlos Aured. A prologue set during the Inquisition shows Molina as a witch-hunter who is cursed by an evil Countess (Patty Shepard) while she is burned alive. In the present day, a gypsy revives the curse after Molina shoots a werewolf, leading a pretty girl (Maritza Olivares) to seduce him and pass on the disease of lycanthropy by scarring his chest with a wolf's skull. The curse continues even after Daninsky is done in by his sweetheart (Fabiola Falcon), for she births a child in the sequel-bait conclusion. Jose Manuel Martin, Maria Silva, and Eduardo Calvo co-star. Molina returned as the werewolf in the delirious La Maldicion de la Bestia (1975).
