Take a she-werewolf kind of plot, mix it with a bit of reincarnation, throw in some lame paranormal theories, add some revenge drama for good measure and sprinkle with some of the worst acting of all time (courtesy of Annik Borel as the sexually abused Daniela who goes off killing people like there’s no tomorrow) and ?hey presto!- there you have it, La Lupa Mannara, a delightfully incoherent, inane and cheesy Italian splatter in the best tradition of the genre. Too bad to miss ? just leave you brains at home.
