***Possible spoilers*** This is by far THE best werewolf movie I've ever seen, and I've seen them all (put it down to a lifelong fascination with lycanthropy). Most werewolf movies have left me frustrated and disappointed (the other two personally likeable ones being "An American Werewolf In London" and "An American Werewolf in Paris"), and wanting better. So, it was with more than a little skepticism that I watched this movie for the first time when it premiered on the Sci-Fi Channel. By the looks of it, they didn't cut much out of it (far less "editing" than the networks would have done to it, anyway). And I was very nicely surprised by what I saw: superb acting ("Spoon" rules!!!), a well-put-together story, and over-the-top special effects make-up. The werewolves in it actually LOOK like werewolves -- not werebears like the one in "An American Werewolf In London". I've seen numerous critiques on this movie where the people complain that it's "too gory" or "overly gruesome", etc. Well, guess what, gang -- it's a WEREWOLF movie; it's supposed to be gruesome. In fact, that's been the major problem with most of the werewolf movies out there: they're not gruesome enough, and it renders the movie unrealistic, given the "nature of the beast". If you want to watch a canine movie with no gore or violence, go rent "Benji". I HIGHLY recommend this movie to all horror movie buffs, especially lycanthrope lovers.
