Go To

Wolfhound of the Clan of Grey Hounds (Волкодав из рода Серых Псов, Volkodav iz roda Serykh Psov) is a 2006 fantasy Action-Adventure film from Russia, based on the book by Maria Semyonova.

He was condemned to death, but survived to wreak revenge for the murder of his clan. The last member of the clan of the Grey Hounds became a fearless warrior by the name of Wolfhound. After cheating death in the mines, Wolfhound sets out on a journey with his constant companion, the Earthbound Bat. Wolfhound has but one desire – to destroy the Maneater, a merciless warrior who slaughtered the village of the Grey Hounds.


After making the long journey to the Maneater’s castle, Wolfhound finally conquers his archenemy. He also frees two prisoners, the sage Tilorn and slave-girl Neelith. Wolfhound accompanies them to the city of Galirad, which has been thrown into turmoil. The evil druid Zhadoba is planning to attack the city at any moment. The king of Galirad, to save the city from destruction, is giving his daughter away in marriage to Vinitar, a young warrior who promises to protect Galirad.

Princess Elen must travel to the land of her new husband, and asks Wolfhound to be her guard in this long and dangerous journey. Wolfhound agrees to serve the princess and is caught up in a whirlwind of mysterious events, as the true purpose of the journey is gradually revealed....

The film came during the same time that other Russian films, such as Night Watch and Admiral, were becoming domestic blockbusters and beginning to gain new international recognition. It is based on the first of the four books by a prominent Russian fantasy writer Maria Semyonova but the plot of the film considerably differs from that of the book.
