A boy (Lucas Till) is trying to find out about his family history and stumbles upon a town of lycanthropes.
Phil Brown, writing for Rue Morgue, calls this "an absolutely abysmal movie" and "a complete mess". He says this is "all stuff you've seen before and you've definitely seen it done better." Brown's only real positive comment is on the casting of Stephen McHattie, who he sees as something of a Canadian treasure.
Brown is too harsh. There is plenty to dislike, true enough, including a very forced plot that seems like paint by numbers (and seems to rip off ideas from werewolf novel "Bitten" without credit). But it still has some great effects and some strong wolf action. And Jason Momoa, who is quickly becoming a rising star in genre films and television.
