Entertainment Weekly
A ferocious, funny, gory, and astute Canadian horror parable.

Variety
A quietly subversive my-sister-is-turning-into-a-werewolf movie that doesn't wimp out at the end.
75
The best teenage werewolf movie ever made.
75
Isn't for everyone, but horror fans with strong stomachs will find it a memorable monsterfest that rarely loses its bite.

Village Voice
This Canadian cheapie plays like an above-average "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" episode, filtered through the sensibility of early David Cronenberg.

If you ever wondered why they call it "the curse," this movie will enlighten as it entertains.
70
Because the characters are so well established -- Ms. Perkins is particularly good as the shy, resentful Brigitte -- the film can have fun with its own premises without turning into an empty camp exercise.
70
Film Threat
A black comedy that nonetheless manages to tap into the sense of alienation and unfocused rage so prevalent in today's kids.

New York Daily News
It makes sly sense to link female hormonal bursts with the lunar cycle of the werewolf, but the movie's final act is the usual matted-fur chase.
