Directed by Marek Piestrak
Set in 1848, a cavalry officer named Kasper returns home to find his wife dying after a botched abortion – from a pregnancy he had no part in. With her last breath she confesses that she has sold her soul to the Devil, and will return as a she-wolf to haunt him for the rest of his days. Seeking to forget these traumatic events, Kasper takes a job for a Count who’s been driven into exile, promising to look after the man’s house and his wife Julia until the Count can safely return. But Julia is an insatiably lustful creature who quickly takes up with an Austrian soldier in her husband’s absence. Could Julia’s feral nature be connected to the large wolf that’s been seen roaming the grounds?

Definitely worth the watch, a little long but fun and interesting
Polish gothic horror, what is there not to love? The movie has a strong start and finish, however the middle of the movie is a bit of a slow burn that might turn some people off of it. Great atmosphere throughout, amazing costumes, and a cool bit of polish history. Really hoping Joe Bob covers this movie at some point.
Great 70s vibe combined with bleak Polish winter atmosphere. Low key, a bit long -- I can see why some would be bored. Disturbing injured dog scene -- I hope that doggo was just a really good actor!
Great old classic. I recommend at least one watch.
I hope Joe Bob Briggs talks about this movie no his show soon I like to here more about the movie's history.
