Synopsis: A man finds himself scratched by wolfsbane and transforms into a werewolf on every full moon. After his third kill, he hears someone approaching, and hides in the brush. The lovely young woman shows no fear as she approaches the still-warm corpse and bends to pierce its neck with her vampire fangs. The werewolf challenges her "It's mine!" and she responds "You abandoned it!" "Wait! There's no need to fight. There's enough here for both of us." She is very beautiful and the werewolf falls in love with her. They take to hunting the hill country together, seeing each other only once a month as the moon affects his transformation. She hopes one day they will find someone who can marry them. He protects her coffin during the day by moving it from place to place, but one day, the villagers catch up to them. They put a silver bullet in his heart and a stake through her's and bury them in the devil's graveyard, a place for murderers and such like. That night, the graves erupt as there is excitement among the undead. "There's going to be a marriage!" they exclaim. The vampire and werewolf are married, with a mausoleum as their honeymoon suite. The following morning the graves are filled back in and all is still, until about nine months later one evening the graves burst open once again, as an excited thrall mutters among themselves "She's expecting!" and they all gather to watch the delivery of...the Old Witch.
