Top Critic Reviews
Rotten: in the absence of tension, laughs, thrills, scares or anything like complexity, there is nothing here for viewers to sink their fangs into. The only real note of menace...is a hint at the end that there may be a sequel.

Rotten: stinks like a mangy animal's fetid coat

Rotten: The only thing more boring than a vampire with moral issues about biting people in the neck is a werewolf who'd rather become fully human than howl at the moon once a month.

I love werewolf and vampire movies, my fav, but this is kind disappointing. The story is stretched, a boy must survive to his 12th or 13th birthday so he can 'cure' the werewolf curse, some want this some dont. But the ending makes this kinda unimportant seeing as its up to the individual werewolf wether he wants to be cured or not. The effects are Stan Winston so they're hot but nothing special, Im afraid there's just nothing new to do with vamps and werewolfs now, its all been done. This is very average really there's nothing outstanding and the cast is pretty mudane too.

A low budget werewolf film with a good idea but poor execution. The werewolves look quite odd and the plot is far too simple and obvious. Gingersnaps or Dog Soldiers are much better!

This movie had some nice shots of autumn foliage. Why would I start with this as part of my review? Because the foliage and the beautiful Rhona Mitra are about the only reasons to watch this movie. Attempting to capitalize upon the success of the "Underworld" franchise this movie takes on the pros and cons of being a werewolf and those that would see the "curse end" versus those who feel "blessed" by "lunacy." The plot was almost interesting, but so poorly executed. The action was fierce, but...ridiculous. Can't anyone aim a gun anymore? Even fully automatic weapons never seem to hit their mark at close range. The acting was terrible. The makeup/costumes were just awful! Robin Williams looks more like a werewolf in "Jumanji" than any of the actors in this film. Scenes are so long and drawn out...this movie could have been 15 minutes long and...well it still would have stunk. You cannot even make this into a good "cheese" movie. It was just plain bad. So, like I said...nice foliage...bad movie.
