The daughter of a well-known werewolf has inherited the curse, and is knocking off people who are doing research on the family legend.
This is not my favorite werewolf movie by a long shot. Though it has a different werewolf mythology than that of THE WOLFMAN, it is not an interesting one, and despite some novel ways of handling low-budget werewolf transformation scenes, I was mostly bored by the movie. The things that most caught my interest were the presence of character actor Fritz Lieber (father of the noted SF author who himself appeared in EQUINOX), and Osa Massen, who I initially mistook for Simone Simon, and then recognized her as the actress who played Lisa Van Horn in ROCKETSHIP X-M.
