Konstantin Eggert both directed and starred as Count Shemet, cursed by his insane mother's traumatic experience with a bear to have seizures during which he himself becomes a "bear" on the kill. Eggert's direction of the movie is as odd as the plot. The whole film is unsettling. The titles are too long; there are interminable shots of irrelevant action; the cutting is uneven. The heroine is unsuitably comic, spasmodically jumping around, smearing ink on her face, knocking things over.
