This is a fine Danish werewolf movie, with our sixteen-year-old protagonist Marie (Sonia Suhl) realising that the changes in her body may be a bit strange – especially the excess hair and bloody nails which seem to have something growing under them. Her mother (Sonja Richter) is catatonic and wheelchair-bound, and it looks like things run in the family with father (Lars Mikkelsen) desperate to protect his daughter from the fishing village folk who may want to cause her harm.
The tension builds as Marie slowly realises her destiny, and there’s an effective denouncement. It’s a smartly put together horror film, and well worth checking out.
