The A.V. Club
While it isn't particularly scary or suspenseful, it's fun and surprisingly breezy compared with its big-budget brethren.
50
Adds little to the annals of werewolf lore. But it's briskly paced and features a couple of clever twists on genre conventions.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
A Canadian-made werewolf thriller, Skinwalkers occasionally rises above its station as a standard-issue horror flick to deliver some enjoyably cheeseball thrills.
40
L.A. Weekly
The only thing more boring than a vampire with moral issues about biting people in the neck is a werewolf who’d rather become fully human than howl at the moon once a month.
40
Variety
Plays more like '70s drive-in fare than a monster mash of recent vintage.
40
There's a lot that remains unclear about the powers and abilities of the creatures in Skinwalkers, largely robbing the film of tension as events transpire in a slapdash, haphazard manner.
38
It stands alongside this year's other werewolf disaster, "Blood and Chocolate," in illustrating why the moon should set on the werewolf movie.
38
Watching the movie is a little like picking up issue #42 of a comic book after you've skipped the first 41: There's an entire back story mythos hovering in the background like a phantom limb.
30
The Hollywood Reporter
A thoroughly undistinguished addition to a genre that probably reached its peak a quarter-century ago with "An American Werewolf in London."
20
Yawningly directed by Jim Isaac, Skinwalkers is a slavering mess that buries its clunky addiction metaphor beneath a welter of genre clichés, all delivered in extra-slow motion.
