A British Squad is sent on a training mission in the Highlands of Scotland against Special Operations squad. Ignoring the childish "campfire" stories heard about the area, they continue with their mission and come across the bloody remains of the Special Ops Squad, and a fierce howling is pitching the night sky... With two mortally wounded men, they make an escape, running into a zoologist by the name of Megan - who knows exactly what hunts them. What began as what they thought was a training mission turns into a battle for their lives against the most unlikely enemies they would have expected - werewolves. Written by
Sgt. Wells' surname is only mentioned once in the film. His first name (Harry) is never mentioned at all. See more »
When the team reaches the destroyed special forces position there are 105mm charges and ammunition amongst the equipment present. The 105mm is an artillery piece unlikely to be used in a wood, and definitely not by special forces. See more »
What's the glue for?
Ever wondered why the best thing that superglue sticks together is your fingers? Forget your grandma's china cups - this stuff was developed for the Vietnam war to patch up broken soldiers.

What a monstrous masterpiece this werewolf movie is!
By all means a positive surprise.
I've watched many a horror movie in my time, so I'm always skeptical whenever I either go to the movies or to the video store. However, this movie just made my jaw drop; I watched this movie very late at night all by myself and I was so scared! However, I do have a slightly hyperactive imagination, but still...WOW!
So why is it so good? Well, first of all the acting is really good. You really invest in these characters. Second of all, the werewolves are NOT CGI! The way they look is just so utterly creepy, especially because they have a very original design (at least in my opinion). Thirdly, the script is great; it's nice to watch a horror movie where the cast isn't a bunch of teens you couldn't care less about. The dialog is at times very, very funny. Not involuntarily funny, but funny because the writer intended it to be so.
You should watch this movie if you like horror films that are a bit untraditional or if you want to see a convincing werewolf movie with great acting.
IMPORTANT! I've heard the US TV version has been trimmed horribly. Therefore I must insist you see the DVD version. The region 2 DVD version also features one of the most hilarious commentary tracks ever recorded in DVD history, which makes the region 2 version the most recommendable version of all.
