A werewolf tale of France…based on real events.
From the playwright who wrote The Gravedigger and Dr. Seward’s Dracula, comes the final installment of his classic horror trilogy, a werewolf tale straight out of history.
In the 18th Century French countryside, a mysterious wild-animal is ravaging the livestock and the citizenry, leaving behind a trail of blood and death. No one has seen it, but they have seen the gory results of its savage attacks and suspect that it’s a Loup-Garou, the savage werewolf of French legend. When Louis XVI puts a bounty on the animal, the mystery and horror only deepen.
