I actually liked this movie. As one critic said, it was never going to win any Oscars but it was a descent enough movie, with a good story line and very competent acting by all concerned.
Take a poor village in a nameless land, chuck in a hotch-potch of people who have various trades from silversmiths, to woodcutters, to trades folk and you have a recipe for the start of a spooky story.
Valerie and her family are just ordinary folk living in their little village when the Wolf comes calling. Valerie's older sister is killed by the wolf and Valerie herself is hunted by the creature who seems to know her every move.
Valerie is in love with Peter the Woodcutter but she is engaged to Henry because he can offer her a better life than Peter can.
Fear soon envelopes the little village and the local priest calls for Father Solomon to come and help rid them of their curse but Solomon is as dangerous as the wolf and innocents will die under his hand before the truth about the wolf is revealed to Valerie and Peter.
Fantastic special effects, CGI gets 10 out of 10 and the soundtrack was pretty good too.
All in all a good film to watch whilst eating your popcorn late at night.
