Disturbing Italian psychological horror

Following a brutal rape, Daniela's father takes her away to the family's country home to mentally recover from the trauma. However she becomes fixated on a legend of an ancestor who was allegedly a werewolf. When Daniela discovers a picture of her relative and realizes the disturbing similarity, her fixation becomes a flat out obsession complete with nightmares and hallucinations. When observing her sister and husband having sex, Daniela's mind snaps, luring him out to the wood to seduce him and then rip out his throat with her bare teeth. After her brother in law's death is ruled an accident, Daniela becomes near catatonic and is moved to a mental institution. Daniela then becomes very violent and verbally abusive and is thus restrained. A female patient (and nymphomaniac) comes to her at night and molests her. Daniela persuades her into taking off the restraints and then brutally kills her and escapes. Several brutal(and graphic) murders later Daniela is picked up in the rain by a very kind man who shelters her and loves her. Daniela has never met a man who didn't try to hurt her, so consequently she is quite taken aback with the gentle stranger. Strangely enough all of her psychotic urges are quelled. The happy couple lives in absolute bliss (shown by slow motion strolls on the beach) until a band of thugs break into the house, rape Daniela, and kill her newfound love. Needless to say, Daniela is a little bit angry.... I found Werewolf Woman to be a very disturbing and depressing look at the darker side of humanity. . The best part of this movie is that it allows you to decide for yourself whether Daniela is simply a psychopath or truly possessed by the spirit of her lupine ancestor. Annik Borel plays the role of Daniela to a tee. Once again Rino Di Silvestri directs an absolute masterpiece of Italian sex/gore/horror cinema.

More Werewolf Stuff

This is quite a graphically violent and explicit film. It's much more graphic than I expected. It's not really a werewolf movie. There are violent attacks where throats are ripped out, but it doesn't really have the supernatural element we might expect. This is a case study of a woman who has been so badly abused that she loses her sense of self and strikes out against all men. Even when things begin to go well, it's as if she has been singled out for some kind of demonic punishment. Unfortunately, many others suffer her wrath, some deserving, others not. The scenes are pretty explicit and ugly. This is one of those movies that kind of grabs you but it's more like going to an auto wreck than something desirable. It's not badly made and moves pretty well. Be forewarned, however, that it isn't for all tastes.

Charming piece of Italian sleaze.

Daniella Neseri raped as a girl,channels her hatred towards men by summoning and becoming possessed by a deceased and vicious female werewolf ancestor.She lures victims by her charm,sexual drive and seduction before turning into the Wolf-woman to graphically take a bloody revenge and kill them."The Werewolf Woman" by Rino Di Silvestro of "Deported Women of the SS" fame is a very sleazy Italian horror film loaded with gore and graphic nudity.The first dreamy sequence in which Annik Borel is writhing and dancing naked before transforming into werewolf left me stunned.The film is occasionally quite dull,however it surely contains lots of nudity,soft core sex and bloody mayhem.I particularly liked the supernatural aspects of the story.The acting is bad and the dubbing is even worse,but overlook that and we have an enjoyable piece of Italian sleaze with no artistic pretensions.I wanted nudity and gore and that's what I've got.7 out of 10.
