A favorite of director Quentin Tarantino, WEREWOLF WOMAN is a psychological horror film about a young woman, mentally unstable and dealing with sexual abuse, who imagines she is the reincarnation of a dead ancestor who just happened to be a werewolf! Before long, she is seducing men and turning into a werewolf and tearing them to shreds, but when she meets the man whom she believes could be her true love, she is ready to leave her troubled past behind.
This erotic and gruesome Eurohorror classic is presented here in a remastered in HD transfer that does justice to its unique visual style and to the work of its director, Rino Di Silvestro.
