This is a surprisingly very well-made movie, a well-written and highly original script, outstanding cinematography and special effects, and pretty much everything else. The acting is also surprisingly great, other than a few "wooden" acting moments from actor Casper Van Dien, but the rest of the cast was always spot-on. But those few weak moments are forgivable, since the rest of the movie is so strong. I also really like the werewolf costume and makeup as well as the "Buckys" (corpse props) and gore effects--all very convincing. And, I like how the computer animated effects were kept to a bare minimum, which also makes this movie more believable and effective. If you are a big werewolf movie fan (like my wife and I are), you will enjoy this film a lot. But even if you aren't a huge werewolf fan, but simply enjoy good, fun movies, I think that you will also like this one. We recommend it, and will be enjoying it again and again.
Casper Van Dien ( Starship Troopers ) is competent in the role of the hapless werewolf. The story plays out well with no surprises. If there was one glaring flaw it was the monster itself. The werewolf looked a lot like a Wookie with bad teeth. The Howling and Dog Soldiers set the bar very high and this outing did not measure up. Shame on them. I would say something like " They can't all be Five Star movies. " But , why not? !
Bad acting all over the place, I mean really bad acting. The lead actress....Jennifer Wenger and I am using the word actress in a very generous way is really really awful. Casper VanDien and Patrick Muldoon, well their careers have been over for some time and this movie could be the last nail in the coffin. Really bad werewolf costumes and the story is just bad. This woman keeps fighting with here husband and knows there is something wrong and she keeps smooching with him all the time. Tedious and stupid.

Great B movie for werewolf fans, along with a new twist. What happens when Larry the dog gets bitten? Watch it and see! I loved this movie, but the low budget couldn't get it above 4 stars even with Jennifer Wegner and Casper Van Dien at the helm.
I started watching the movie because Casper Van Dien was in it and his movies are usually campy but I did NOT like this one. He playing one huge creep. Was about to stop watching but decided to read a review (a 2) and the person mentioned something interesting. I skipped until I saw the "nice doggie", near the end (about 18 minutes left). I like nice doggies. From then on I decided it was worth giving it a 3. So if you hate it, skip most of it.

This movie was a waste of money. I thought it would be better because Casper Van Diem was in it. Bad script, bad acting, worst werewolf costume. It looked more like a "B" movie would be. Casper really lowered himself. Must've been desperate to accept this movie role.
It was as if Patrick Muldoon and Casper Van Dein(?) lost a bet with someone in Hollywood....they couldn't bring themselves to even attempt to act in this movie. Muldoon and Casper were acting as if sedated and struggling to remember their lines. The lead actress and Larry the Dog were at least TRYING. The script needed help, but the story line was original; too bad most of the cast treated this like a TIC TOK video. It's rare that I write reviews....this one deserved it. And still....I watched pretty much the entire thing, which included skipping to the end halfway through.
