In Glasgow, the teenager single mother Kelly Ann is forced by Father Steven "Steve" Gillis to deliver her baby boy for adoption. Six weeks later, Father Steve organizes a hike in the countryside with the youths David, Louise, Mark and Kelly Ann and leaves them alone in the Scottish Highlands. He shows the meeting point in the map and tells that he would wait for them in an inn on the next day. Out of the blue, Kelly Ann's ex-boyfriend Lee joins the group invited by David. While hiking, the group stumbles with a weird shepherd and later Lee puts the man on the run. During the night, Kelly Ann overhears the cry of a baby and she goes with Lee to a derelict old castle where they find an abandoned baby in the middle of dead bodies. Soon the group is hunted down by a deadly wolf-like creature and has to decide whether they hide or fight to survive. Written by

The werewolves in the movie were designed by Bob Keen of Image Fx. The same team who created the werewolves in 'Dog Soldiers', which is also set in the Scottish highlands but was not filmed in Scotland. See more »
Agreeing to journey into the Scottish highlands, a group of friends hoping for a relaxing camping trip stumble upon the ravenous werewolf hunting on the grounds and must find a way to stop the creature and get out alive.
This turned out to be a very enjoyable and exciting werewolf effort that has a lot to like about it. One of the better elements at work is the rather impressive atmosphere this works up, managing to take utterly spectacular effect of the location to provide a real sense of isolation and extreme discomfort. The setting out in the woods is indeed quite chilling with the rolling fog-banks and lifeless foliage before taking into account the abandoned, crumbling castle found in the area evokes a classic Gothic archetype that goes well with the discovery of the body-pit that undoubtedly adds to the feeling of unease found there since there's plenty of evidence for both suspense and shocks. This in turn allows the initial stalking in the woods all the more terrifying as it also manages to include the element of them fully aware that something is out there in the shadows and ready to come after them as the inhuman growling and snarling matches this quite effectively and their race to get away is all the more enjoyable. When the beast is fully revealed and really into the film is when this kicks off into high gear with all the endless running, chasing and stalking in the final half which not only manages to feature a ton of great gore and wounds for all the attacks but generates a slew of enjoyable action scenes including the race for shelter into the house which is the best among them here. This is also due in part to the fact that the werewolf here is of incredibly high-caliber, not only in design with a vicious, muscular-looking beast with a huge set of claws, massive jaws and a generally imposing appearance but also behavior with it being true to the image of the remorseless werewolf intent on feeding and nothing more so the savageness of it's attacks is also apparent throughout here. These here are really enough to hold off the film's lone problematic area which is the rather short running time here. Granted this tends to fly by the introduction of the characters which isn't all that important but it really tends to short-change the second half here by zipping through the attacks and chases so much so that it actually manages to get interesting about their quest to get out only to then end the film with a sudden halt and it feels a bit short here when it could've expanded some of the stalking and chasing a bit more to make up for it. Otherwise, this one was quite fun.
Rated R: Graphic Violence, Extreme Graphic Language and Nudity.
