The medieval village of Daggerhorn is tormented by a werewolf, but no one seems to realize the obvious until the newly-arrived witch hunter Father Solomon (Gary Oldman) points it out – the beast has to be one of the villagers. The Brothers Grimm tale inspired this fantasy that looks like a cross between The Village (2004) and Twilight (2008). The director tries to create a dark, bloody yet romantic universe that exists only within the film, but ends up with a plastic product that inspires snickering rather than scares.
