In accordance with the Navajos' legend, a thirteen year-old boy will finish with the curse of the powerful Skinwalkers, a.k.a. werewolves. The half-breed boy Timothy is raised by his human mother Rachel and protected by his Skinwalkers relatives since he was born. His grandmother Nana, his uncle Jonas, his cousin Katherine, her boyfriend Adam and their friend Doak have kept the secret about his bloodline and neither Timothy nor Rachel know the tragic curse. A couple of days before Timothy's thirteenth birthday, a pack of evil Skinwalkers that had tasted blood leaded by the evil Varek chases the boy while his family protects him. Written by

When I first observed this movie on the wall at the local video store I was reluctant. Too many ignorant attempts at the creation of werewolves by directors who don't understand the myths behind werewolves have made me cautious when it comes to these type of movies.
I'm a big fan of werewolves and vampires but only when the folklore behind the two is handled properly. That's why I'm a fan of this movie. (You won't find any vamps in this movie.) First of all, there's originality in the plot. Instead of any number of bloodthirsty animals running around killing everything in sight, we get to see the humanity of the creatures.
Secondly, you still recognize the human likeness of the person once he/she has transformed into a werewolf. Too many movies portray a werewolf as only a wolf...just some big, furry animal with no humanity about him. That's not a werewolf.
For us guys, it has plenty of action and eye candy. Natassia Malthe, Sarah Carter and Rhona Mitra are some beautiful women. The plot keeps moving from the beginning and you won't have time to get bored.
This movie didn't make a big splash in the theaters and I'm sure some will say it's not that good. Personally, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and hope to hear of a sequel in the future.
