We all know the story of the Wolfman from the movies - a man who turns into a werewolf and kills upon a full moon - but could this legendary horror creature be all too real? Follow veteran police detective Captain George Deuchar and renowned cryptozoologist, Ken Gerhardt as they investigate the legend of the notorious Wolfman.
Deuchar and Gerhardt investigate the biggest and most lethal alleged Werewolf attack in history. Between the years of 1764 and 1767, the small French hamlet of Gevaudan was plagued by a mysterious beast that attacked and killed 102 villagers. The victims (mostly women and children) were all maliciously mauled and decapitated. All bore the bite marks of a non-human creature, and even more bizarre - many victims were found undressed and sexually assaulted. For centuries, the true identify of this mysterious "wolfman" has remained a mystery.
Digging deeply into the mythology of Werewolves, they uncover reported paranormal transformations, diseases that make men look and act like animals, strange but true stories of children raised by wolves, and the truth about wolfsbane and silver bullets. Their modern-day forensic investigation leads them to the horrific truth behind the Werewolf murders and a monster of a surprising order -- a real Wolf-Man.
The Real Wolf-Man premieres Wednesday, October 28 at 9pm on the History Channel.
