WEREWOLF is a Polish drama in which a group of children, liberated from a Nazi concentration camp, are trapped in a house by a pack of dogs.


It is implied that a camp guard executes a child by stamping on his head. Characters are mauled by dogs.

Sexual violence

A soldier pins down a teenage girl and it is implied that he means to rape her, but intervention prevents him from doing so.

Injury detail

Victims of dog attacks have lacerated throats, torn faces and, in one case, a missing eye. A wound is stitched in close-up detail.


There is use of strong language ('motherf**ker', 'f**k'), as well as other terms such as 'bitch' and 'shit'.

The Holocaust is a theme of the film. It is implied that a teenage girl attempted suicide in a concentration camp.
