Not bad.
10 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

All these people are seriously hating on this movie. Either they haven't seen it, or they're just hating to hate. It's seriously not that bad. It's entertaining. I've been saying this all day; as soon as someone asks what I thought, I say, "Take it for what it's worth." Can anyone say the last perfect horror/scifi movie that they saw? Nope. It's fun. It's got pretty people in it. And the effects are pretty damn good too. It's good. The premise is about the native American idea of skinwalkers. The idea differs a bit in the movie, but you get the jist of it. There are a few funny parts, that aren't meant to be funny, but it's ENTERTAINMENT. When you take a few mediocre actors, and put them in a movie like this, I don't know what you're expecting. It's done well. If there was another movie to compare it to, it would probably be something like 'An American Werewolf in London,' or 'Interview With a Vampire.' All that I kept thinking while I was watching the movie, is how cool it actually would be, to be able to live forever. Or, more so, how it would be to have INCREDIBLE strength like this. People take this way too seriously. You watch a movie to escape from reality, right? Otherwise you'd be watching documentaries all the time. And honestly, that would just be a bummer.

Don't hate y'all. It's bad for your complexion.
