A team of archaeologists with unplaceable accents unearth a skeleton at a dig in an Arizona quarry. The Native Americans on the dig instantly recognize it as the remains of a werewolf, so the team leaders immediately take it to their lab and stare at it. Natalie, one of the team members, thinks it's absolutely fascinating, but Yuri siezes on greater ambitions when one of the dig assistants, who injured themself on the remains, becomes infected and turns into a werewolf in full view of hospital personnel. Yuri then conducts an experiment infecting other people in town to see if they turn into werewolves as well. When Paul arrives at the lab to assist in analyzing the remains, Yuri infects him, too. After Paul's transformation (under a week-long full moon), Natalie tries to save him. Written by Leo L. Schwab <ewhac@best.com>

Did You Know?


Director Tony Zarindast used stock footage for the car wreck that he had purchased before the shoot. In an attempt to make the footage match with the car used for the shoot he had the car painted the matching color of the stock footage car. Still it's obvious that the car is a Ford Taurus and the car in the wreck is a Plymouth Acclaim. See more »


During the fight near the beginning, punches are clearly missing by several inches. See more »

At least the box looks ok.
24 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is your typical bad movie. It is hard where to start. For one is the moon. The moon is apparently full for a couple of weeks at a time. I mean they go through multiple nights in this movie and every darned night there is a full moon. Then there is the fact that the werewolf looks different everytime you see it. Sometimes it looks like a bear, sometimes an ape, sometimes a cat, but rarely like a wolf. The actors are all bad, and one of them can't decide on his hairstyle, he changes it as often as the werewolf changes appearance. At some points in the film you can't hear what the people are saying, in others you can't see them that well. In the end just try to avoid this movie at all costs.
