Richard & Gilbert

A Film by David Sarno

Synopsis

A small village is haunted by strange and awful murders. The scared villagers turn to two officials in search for help to solve the crimes. The investigations point to a very perfidious kind of murders: All victims were nibbled off shortly before or after their death. Could an animal be the cause of the strange bite marks on the faces and arms of the dead bodies?
