I never saw such a movie but a friend asked me about it. Maybe you know the title of this one: He recalls it's about a girl who reads a book and crimes start happening around her. There's a villain who steals parts of his victim's faces. The author of that book made an additional book about a mad scientist who makes experiments with his still-in-womb son transforming him into some sort of jackal. The sicentist finally puts the book in a safe to try to stop the curse. Any idea of which movie it is? Thanks.
