Review by Sven Soetemans

Certainly NOT a eurohorror-highlight !
I just love these a.k.a titles…’The Werewolf vs. the Vampire Women’ . Ta-da, there you one of the sleaziest and fun sounding titles in all eurohorror/exploitation history. Unfortunately, the film itself is a bit of a letdown. It’s cheap and silly of course…but that’s not a boundary to me. The fact that it’s tedious and overall pretty lame on the other hand IS a boundary! The movie contains too many ‘dead’ moments in which nothing happens except for a little unnecessary mumbo-jumbo. There’s no tension at all…not even an attempt to build some up, as the monsters and twists seem to appear out of nowhere.

The Werewolf’s Shadow (another a.k.a) merely depends on a fair amount of bloodshed and the female beauty that is present in the cast. Elvira (played by Gaby Fuchs who had a smaller part in Mark of the Devil) and her very foxy friend Genevieve are crossing the French countryside, searching for the tomb of an ancient female vampire – Countess Wandessa – when they are housed by the charming Waldemar. He offers to help them in their search for the tomb, but he also has a little secret to hide himself. Waldemar is a werewolf and with the arrival of the two girls, he hopes to finally lift up the curse and find piece.
