The Curse of the Werewolf (Blu-ray)

In 18th Century Spain, a small village is ruled over by an evil Marquis. A beggar goes to the castle of this unfair ruler and asks for a small amount of bread and is consequently humiliated and jailed. He is soon forgotten and becomes more animal than human, the only contact he has with humanity is through the mute servant girl who feeds him.

When the servant girl is thrown into the beggar’s cell and raped in a fit of lustful rage she falls pregnant. After being released from the cell she escapes the castle and is taken in by the kind Alfredo Corledo On Christmas Day, Leon is born. His mother dies at birth and Corledo takes to raising the boy.

Leon grows up to be a normal boy until age 6 when he begins to go missing at night and goats are reported savaged the next day. Leon is a werewolf, a condition brought on by his traumatic heritage. However, with love and attention, the transformations can be fought and they are until Leon becomes a man. One full moon he again turns into a werewolf and terrifies the town.
