The great inquisitor Ireneus Daninsky has Countess Bathory burned alive and her female followers hanged. Before perishing in the flames the countess puts a curse on Daninsky and his descendants. Four centuries later, Waldemar Daninsky accidentally shoots a gypsy while hunting a wolf. The angry gypsies, who knew of the curse, summon up the Satan and the beautiful Ilona is chosen to seduce the young lord. During a night of love, Ilona bites Waldemar who turns into a werewolf killing his preys on full moon nights. His murders are first attributed to a mad killer escaped from the asylum. Waldemar, who suspects the killer is none other than himself, falls in love with Kinga, the daughter of a professor from Budapest. When Maria, Kinga's jealous younger sister, manages to seduce Waldemar and sleep with him, she is killed by the young man, once again turned into a werewolf.

Kevin M W (nl) wrote: The Rocky Balboa story set in horse-racing, about making good on second chances, and directly related to the tough times of the Depression, when many people felt they needed a second chance. David McCullough adds a qualifying touch as narrator and William Macy delights as color man. Still, its more a psuedo-quality work than a work of actual quality.

Stefan G (nl) wrote: If I could describe it in one word, I would could it bizarre. It's weirder than the average sci-fi movie, but in a way, that's what makes it unique. As opposed to nearly every sci-fi movie of the time, where aliens were always hostile to humanity, the starfish-shaped aliens of this movie want to help humanity stop a rogue planet from colliding with Earth. It's not bad, but I find that there are serious issues with pacing. It takes quite a while to get to the point, which I think is quite surprising for a film that's 88 minutes long. Another surprise is the lack of eventful action scenes. It's not an action movie, but it certainly gets really boring, and the ending really isn't that great either. If you're a big fan of quirky sci-fi films from the 50's, you may want to check it out. Otherwise, I don't think it's worth your time.
