DVD Review: Werewolf Hunter

This one is certainly not your run-of-the-mill werewolf movie. It takes place in the 1800's and is about Europe's first serial killer, Romasanta, who's defense was that he was a werewolf. As the cover says, it's based on a true story. The location shooting is fantastic and really lends an atmosphere of old world charm to the picture. The film stars Julian Sands (Warlock), and the acting is actually very good with the direction and choreography top notch. But, as in many a bad advertising methods, the creature on the cover does not make an appearance in the movie. And we all know how that steams me. For such a well directed movie to have such a stupid cover on it just to garnish some sales is a shame because the film is much more than a werewolf movie. I'll give it **** out of *****. It lost half a star because of the cover lie.
