Eyes of the werewolf

Eyes of the werewolf - Full Movie


Summary:

Were-wolves, also known as lycanthropes, are mythologic humans with the ability to shapeshift into a wolf or wolflike creature, either purposely, by eating Henbane[citation needed], being bitten by a werewolf or after being placed under a curse. They have been around in fiction and myth as long as recorded history[citation needed]. The medieval chronicler Gervase of Tilbury associated the transformation with the appearance of the full moon; however, there is evidence that the association existed among the Ancient Greeks, appearing in the writings of Petronius. This concept was rarely associated with the werewolf until the idea was picked up by Gervase. Werewolves have been mentioned in many forms of media, such as the Harry Potter series and are usually described as vicious monsters.


Shape-shifters similar to werewolves are common in tales from all over the world, though most of them involve animal forms other than wolves.

Werewolves are a frequent subject of modern fictional books and films, although fictional werewolves have been attributed traits distinct from those of original folklore, most notably the vulnerability to silver bullets.[1]
