The Ancines Woods (1970) -- Superb Spanish Euro horror directed by Pedro Olea. One of Spain's finest Gothic offerings. Presented full screen with English subtitles. This colorful horror tale begins with Benito Freire (Jose Luis Lopez Vazquez), a peddler and trader of charms and fabrics in a small village in northern Spain. He spends his spare time as a wolf man, murdering women and burying their corpses in the Ancines Woods. Only a forest dwelling witch knows his transformation is caused by epileptic seizures. The Abbot (Antonio Casas) is called on to form a team to investigate, and local farmers set out wolf traps in an effort to halt the harrowing murders. A masterpeice of Spanish cinema.
