La Maldicion de la Bestia (Curse of the Beast) is a 1975 Spanish horror film that is the eighth in a long series about the werewolf Count Waldemar Daninsky, played by Paul Naschy. The film has also been known as The Werewolf and the Yeti, Night of the Howling Beast and Hall of the Mountain King. This film ignored the events from the earlier films The Fury of the Wolfman (1970) and Curse of the Devil (1972), and provided an all-new origin for Waldemar's lycanthropy, having the curse transmitted by the bites of not one, but two, vampire women! A yeti is woven into the storyline (as in The Fury of the Wolfman), but in this film the yeti isn't the cause of Waldemar's lycanthropy, but rather the catalyst that brings Waldemar to Tibet in the first place.

Plot

La Maldicion de la Bestia La maldicion de la bestia

Waldemar Daninsky goes to Tibet to look for proof that the yeti exists. He gets captured by two savage vampire women in a cave who turn him into a werewolf by biting him. Waldemar's friends are then kidnapped by a band of Tibetan pirates who torture their victims gruesomely, and in the grand climax of the film, Waldemar (in werewolf form) gets to fight a genuine Yeti in bloody hand-to-fang combat. Although a yeti is involved in the plot, note it is the two vampire women (and not the yeti) who transform Waldemar into a werewolf in this film, thus giving him yet another origin for his lycanthropy! This film involved more nudity and graphic gore than most of Naschy's other Wolfman films.
