Storyline

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.

Better than you would think
19 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Typically for me werewolf movies rank right between roots canals and a colonoscopy in terms of desirability. Since they're all based around a centuries-old legend, there's generally not much room for originality without fans crying foul because "that's not what werewolves do!" (like werewolves are real and do anything at all). However I decided to give this a shot as it didn't look like your typical werewolf flick and I'm glad I did. The title alone (which is pathetically mundane) made me think it would be another "so bad it's good" kind of movie. While it does fall prey to some of the cheesy pitfalls of many horror movies, it is surprisingly entertaining and able to hold your attention throughout. It may also be the first time I've ever seen a werewolf that engages in witty banter with his victims, so props for originality. Don't watch it expecting Oscar material, but enjoy it for what it is...a slightly campy but ultimately very enjoyable horror/comedy. Sit back and let you mind go...preferably with liberal amounts of beer to make it just that much funnier.
