Manuel Romasanta (Julian Sands) is a traveling salesman who's a nice family guy and writes letter for his fellow illiterate village folk.  A pack of wild dogs are wolves have been causing havoc in the area frightening many people.  When a local wolf hunt fails to stop the brutal killings, all signs point to a person the locals trust the most, Romasanta.  Is he the bloody fiend responsible for these murders or is something else?  Co-staring Maru Valdivelso, Elsa Pataky and Ivana Baquero.  The film was directed by Paco Plaza and co-produced by American filmmaker/Producer Brian Yuzna.

A creepy film that's more of a police procedure/court room drama than a real horror film.  The special effects were good and the brilliant direction from Paco Plaza keeps the movie moving at a nice pace.
Spanish horror films are finally becoming noticed here in the 'states.  These aren't your fathers boring
period pieces or trashy cheaply made schlock (Paul Naschy mundane werewolf/mummy/Dracula films and Jess Franco's snooze fests).  Paco Plaza and Jaume Balaguero are the new faces of horror filmmaking and they have made some underrated and masterfully horror films. I have to recommend this film for those who like to watch in depth and intelligent "terror" flicks.
