In the 16th century, Countess Bathory (Julia Saly) is sentenced to a slow death by being imprisoned in a stone tablet due to her machinations with the devil. Her lycanthropic aide, Waldemar is more than willing to die and end his enslavement to the wicked Countess. After many centuries, Waldemar's corpse was found by a pair of grave robbers and they took the silver cross that kept his body in place; thereby awakening the werewolf.
Days after, three beauteous aspiring archaeologists led by Erika (Silvia Aguilar) crosses paths with a revived Waldemar and they accept his hospitality in his castle. Karen (beauteous Azucena Hernandez) instantly falls in love with Waldemar; apparently she is the chosen one who will end the Count's curse. Erika herself is a student of the dark arts and she intends to revive the vampiress; Countess Bathory, with the blood of her friend Barbara (Pilar Alcon). Bathory awakens after many centuries and is determined to once again put Waldemar under their enthrallment in order to fulfill the prophecies of darkness on Earth.
"Night of the Werewolf" is undoubtedly very much linked with other films of the series. I have not seen "Werewolf Shadow", (or did I?) so I can only assume that this entry would be a "souped-up" version of the ones that came before.Read more ›
Gothic horror with a 1970s style twist.
Not too bloody.
A fun evenings entertainment.
Kudos to Deimos for getting the DVD to the market and at a fair price.
In "Night of the Werewolf" real historical vampire Elizabeth Bathory has gained some young sexy friends some centuries after her and her followers -Daninksy among them, though against his will- were executed for all kinds of goat-heavy badness (a cookie for anyone who pegs that reference). Once a pair of grave robbers remove the silver crucifix from the werewolf's corpse on the full moon (just an all around bad idea, really), the fun begins. The satanic beauties stay at Daninsky's gothic crib where the main (wolf)man naturally takes the pick of the litter for his own -he's pimp like that- and spends his nights killing hobos by the full moon while Bathory's Angels prepare the ritual for her resurrection. Hint: there's blood involved. Before you know it Daninsky is back in the vampire hunting business as the brunette bombshells one-by-one are turned by the Blood Countess and turn on him.Read more ›

Considering what I had heard about this film, I found it to be a bit of a letdown. It's a decent horror film, but the whole look of the movie had a "made for TV" feel to it. Read morePublished on October 26, 2008 by Ham Tyler
