In Cameroon, a group of hunters is attacked by a wild animal, and Charlie Cowley survives but sees his brother Scott dying. Hyperbolically, seven years later, his teenage nephew Derek Cowley steals the key of his stepfather's cabin in the isolated Fire Road 13 and travels with four classmates and his friend Sam to spend the weekend having a party with booze and sex. However, they are attacked by a beast that kills his friends in a sadistic way. Sam and Derek survive, and they suspect that his stepfather, Mitchell Toblat, is a werewolf. When Charlie meets Derek and Sam, they decide to collect evidence to prove that Mitchell is the beast and kill him, but Mitchell discovers their plot and chases the trio.

Gory and funny but the werewolf make up sucked
23 May 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Great little horror flick with very gory death's and some laugh's along the way. By no means a cheap waste of time and in places rather good.The idea of a wise cracking werewolf was new but the biggest draw back of the film for me was the werewolf make up.It totally sucked.The whole face was like a stiff mask with only the mouth moving.Bit like trying to be scared of a fancy dress costume.Why do that????

Its not the best horror film in the world and by no means the worst.I have seen much much worse.The actings good, the actions good and the whole thing looks like a great production, not a home made gore flick.

The little bits of CGI were fun.

If you want a no brain, gore fest which is easy to watch and follow, this is the film for you.
