Movie Info

When her father King Thorsson is captured by a fearsome beast driven by the rage of man, fearless fighter Freya (Jane March) must challenge a monster capable of swallowing her entire kingdom in this medieval take on Beauty and the Beast. Despite his daughter's protests, King Thorsson decides to take one last trip to Bear Island before the beautiful Freya is wed to fiancée and heir to the throne Sven (William Gregory Lee). When King Thorsson is betrayed by Sven and led into the lair of a dreaded man-beast (David Dukas), Freya wastes no time in racing to save her beloved father. A former mortal man abandoned by his people and cursed to walk the planet as a horrific monster, the beast lives in isolation and shame as he clings to his last shreds of humanity. When Freya arrives prepared to sacrifice herself for the good of her kingdom and the life of her father, the beast sees in her a beauty that renews his hope for a better life.

Audience Reviews for Le Sang des bêtes (Blood of the Beasts)


This is obviously disturbing and disgusting. Mercifully brief... any more of this and it would have been not only repetitive but nauseating. Nonetheless, even though it's a nasty business, these guys clearly aren't out to make animals suffer, and even 50 years ago they were pretty humane about it. An interesting (but hard to watch) piece, despite the less-than-subtle narration.
