Plot – Driving through the countryside at night, Will Randall, editor of the publishing house MacLeish, hits a wolf and then gets bitten by the animal. The next day he sees his colleague Stewart Swinton take over his job: during a party held for this occasion, their boss Raymond Alden appoints Swinton to be in charge of the Eastern European market. Meanwhile, Randall discovers that he scares horses. He feels sick and is rescued by lovely Laura, Alden's daughter. His recovered sight, his keen sense of smell and his new sexual vigor do not console him once he discovers that Swinton is his wife Charlotte's lover. He retires to a hotel and schemes how to blackmail Alden, threatening to take away part of the writers to create a new publishing house. Alden gives in to the blackmail and gives Randall his job back. Invited over to dinner by Laura, Randall has a werewolf attack during the full moon and kills a deer in the park of the villa. Scared, he disappears. He goes to a scholar of the occult, who gives him an amulet and, as the man is dying, he begs Randall to bite him to receive his powers, but Randall refuses. The werewolf calls Laura, calms her down and invites her to the hotel. Here his wife tries to win him back, but he rejects her. Then Randall has sex with Laura. The following day he discovers that his wife has been brutally killed and he fears that he is guilty, even though he does not remember anything. Laura defends him from the police, but when she sees blood stains on his shoes, she locks him inside the barn. At the police station, where she has been called to make a statement, Laura finds Swinton who has just made a statement against Randall. Swinton, infected by a bite that Randall had given him during a scuffle, breaks into the house to kill him, slaughters two guardians and attacks Laura who defends herself while Randall has a furious struggle with Swinton. In the end, Laura shoots Swinton while Randall runs away desperately. However, Laura is now also turning into a wolf.
