The film is set in the medieval village of Daggerhorn, where a young woman named Valerie plans to run away with her woodcutter lover, an outsider named Peter, in order to avoid marriage with Henry Lazar, with whom her parents have arranged to marry, so that they can repay their debts to Henry's wealthy father. Their plan to run off with each other is forestalled when Valerie's older sister is found slaughtered by the mysterious werewolf that has been terrorizing their village for years. The people of Daggerhorn have maintained an uneasy truce with the beast, offering the creature a monthly animal sacrifice. But under a blood-red moon, the werewolf has upped the stakes by taking a human life. Hungry for revenge, the people summon a famed Witchfinder General, Father Solomon, to help them track down and kill the beast. But Solomon’s arrival brings unintended consequences, as he warns that the werewolf, who takes human form by day, could be any one of them. As the death toll rises with each moon and panic grips the town, Valerie discovers she has a unique connection to the beast – one that inexorably draws them together, making her both suspect and bait.
