Werewolf Woman

Werewolf Woman is a 1976 Italian horror film directed by Rino Di Silvestro.


When Daniella Neseri was a child, she was raped. The trauma from this has stunted her emotional growth and sexuality, so much so that she cannot have normal romantic relationships with men. One day she discovers that one of her female ancestors was killed for purportedly being a werewolf and that she strongly resembles this woman. This causes her to have nightmares where she transforms into a werewolf and is chased by angry villagers. Eventually, this delusion surfaces in her daily life, and as a result, she murders her sister Elena's lover after watching the two make love. Daniella hides the murder by throwing the body over a cliff, meant to give the impression that he was attacked by a dog and accidentally fell.
