Born under a bad sign.

Curse of the Werewolf takes place in Spain (on the Hammer sets reused from another film) a beggar walks into town during a royal birthday party. What he thinks will be good luck turns pear shape as the Marquis humiliates the beggar in front of his audience and has him tossed in the castle's dungeon. Years pass as the beggar turns into an inhuman beast who lusts afters the jailer's daughter. One day when opportunity strikes, he attacks and rapes the young lady dying afterwords. If that doesn't seem bad enough, the old Marquis tries to do the same but is killed in self defense. On the run she flees but takes up residence with a doctor in a faraway village. On Christmas Day she gives birth to a boy named Leon and expires. Leon grows up under a bad sign. What horror shall occur under the light of the moon?

Curse of the Werewolf is another one of the old Universal Monster Classics to be rebooted by Hammer Films. Oliver Reed stars as the grown up Leon who tries (and fails) to deal with his curse. Sadly, he's lived a sheltered life for too long and just doesn't understand how life really is and when things don't go his way, watch out!

The DVD release is uncut and it has an extra scene and a lot of blood
