There is a serialkiller on the loose in some small village, and while young inspector Demage (Jess Calle) believes it's the work of a wild animal, veteran inspector Lacombe (Antonio Pica) thinks the victims were killed by a garden hoe ...

Famed novelist Waldemar Daninsky (Paul Naschy) experiences some strange condition of late, a condition that makes him somehow feel responsible for the murders. He visits his friend Doctor Mina Westenra (Amparo Munoz) for a checkup. She eventually finds out his blood has some canine characterisics - which might have to do with some family curse ...

Daninsky's daughter Kinga (Eva Isanta) is directly affected by the murders when her best friend is found murdered by who- or whatever it is, and she turns more and more to Laurent (Jorge R.Lucas), the priest's (Luis Maluenda) in the process. Then disaster strikes even closer to home, when both Kinga's mother (Rosa Fontana) and brother (Carlos Ramo) are found murdered, with Waldemar standing next to their bodies, all covered in blood, and totally confused. The police puts Waldemar above suspicion regarding the murders, but Doc Mina is not so sure, does some readup on werewolves, and is paid a visit by the spirits of Waldemar's gipsy mother (Ester Ponce) and the gipsies' patriarch (Javier Loyola), who support her suspicions - and they tell her how to kill a werewolf.

All that has happened in recent days has turned Kinga into a bundle of nerves, and who can blame her. She locks herself into her family's house, but even there she's not save, as a masked man with a garden hoe breaks in with the express intent to kill her. She manages to unmask the man to reveal it to be ... the priest. She doesn't however manage to slow the man down, but in the nick of time, she is saved by the werewolf, who is of course also her dad. Weredad kills the priest, then turns on her though ... only to be shot in the nick of time by Doctor Mina, who fortunately enough has brought some silver bullets with her.

 

The first Hombre Lobo-film in almost one and a half decades - not counting Howl of the Devil, in which the character only had a supporting role - also proves to be one of the most disappointing ones: Basically, the film is a (futile) attempt to shake the character of its pulp roots and turn the typical Hombre Lobo-storyline into some standard, TV-friendly thriller fare. Likewise, the directorial effort is much too impersonally slick to really generate too much interest or show passion for the character as such. On top of that, the film's cast of characters is much too overcrowded to really properly follow one single story, and the attempts to turn the film into some kind of murder mystery are doomed to fail - after all, everyone knows Waldemar Daninsky is El Hombre Lobo, right?

In all, a disappointment, and not the film everybody had been waiting for ...
