With great acting, and a tense story, this is an obscure gem worth watching.

Audience Reviews for Romasanta (Werewolf Hunter - Legend of Romasanta)

Brings the werewolf legend as near to reality as possible.

Trivia provided on IMDb says the movie is based on the case of serial killer Manuel Blanco Romasanta who murdered 13 people in 1850s Spain. He claimed a curse turned him into a wolf causing him to kill. Because of these claims, Queen Isabella II acquitted him.

I think this movie gets a lot of things right in exploring the origins of the werewolf legend in relatively recent history. The movie is slowly paced and the acting quality often reminded me of a made for TV movie. Julian and Elsa are strong as the leads though. The story is suspenseful and seems realistic for the most part. I particularly liked the interplay between the district attorney (Piquer) and the professor (Gant). The investigative skills employed at the time to bring this criminal to justice and the scientific/psychological theories being tested out almost make it like CSI.
