In Budapest, a disparate group of people attend the reopening of a castle uninhabited since the last occupants were killed 500 years ago. Night falls and, as a blizzard rages outside, a werewolf stalks around and the group are killed off, one by one. Their host, the Count, says the werewolf is one of the group. He is shot by Mary Lou. David embraces her, reassuring her there is no werewolf, but, behind his back, she smiles.
