Bad Movie would have been a more apt title. When locals begin turning up slashed to pieces, the authorities suspect Thor, a normally gentle German shepherd. Janet (Hemingway), the dog's owner, also blames the family pet, though reluctantly. But Janet, with the help of Thor, eventually figures out the beast is her photojournalist brother (Paré), who, when on assignment in the Amazon, was bitten by a wolf and has turned into a werewolf.
