Storyline

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 Dismal Angel

Trivia

The film makes several references to Zulu (1964). There's the choral music featured in Zulu when Spoon is talking about Rorkes drift, and "Dog Soldiers'" Sgt. Well's paraphrases "Zulu's" Colour Sgt. Bourne's "be quiet now will you, there's a good gentleman, you'll upset the lads" when talking to Ryan. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 13 mins) Megan shoots all the ammo from her magazine but the slide doesn't lock back on the last shot like it should. It was designed to do this to allow for the next magazine. See more »

Quotes

Sergeant Harry Wells: Probably some joker who didn't want Joe to hear the footy results.
Joe: Laugh? I nearly shat.

Just Another Werewolf Flick? Think again!
15 March 2004 | by (England) – See all my reviews

American Werewolf in London, was always my favourite werewolf movie. well, this is better!

The cast are not widely known, familiar faces, but no star names, yet they all give first class performances. The dialogue is slick and realistic and the plot and characters build very well.

The gore is truly realistic and looks painful at times, similar to some of the scenes at the start of Private Ryan.

Most of the characters are rock hard nutter's, and they spout off cheesy lines like 'Come and ave a go if you think your hard enough!' and 'I Hope i give you the Sh*t's, you F*ck*n Wimp!' said just after a great fist fight with a werewolf and just before he is about to be eaten.

At no point does this movie try to take itself seriously, and that's why its so good. It really is very funny and at the same time pretty realistic (for a werewolf film). If you like the genre you simply have too see this film, if you don't your missing a treat.

9/10 Great fun
