Kevin had it all: An exciting pyrotechnic job, a caring family, and a beautiful wife. That is until a late night encounter with the savagely blood thirsty Christine prompts him to slowly turn against his family and co-workers. Now, with the help of the quirky and questionable werewolf hunter Kwan, two families from two different cultures will unite for one common cause. Will Kevin betray the ones he loves in favor of the one he lusts? Written by

Werewolf: The Devil's Hound is a very low budget, wacky, shot on video comedy/horror (three parts comedy, one part horror) film about a man and his family/coworkers dealing with the result of him being bitten by an escaped werewolf. It never takes itself too seriously and provides a lot of entertainment despite regularly trying too hard to be funny.
Kevin works for his father's pyrotechnic/special effects company. A crate containing a female werewolf is accidentally delivered to their shop, and soon people are being torn to bits right and left, and Kevin is bitten as the shewolf tries to make him her mate. The only problem is that he's already married.
The camera is always moving and generally the movie never gets dull, though its low budget is readily apparent, especially when it comes to the werewolf effects. The acting is a mixed bag. No one is horrible, but no one is great either, with the possible exception of the actor who plays Kevin's father.
6 stars purely for the entertainment value. When Werewolf: The Devil's Hound is funny, it's really funny. There are a few laugh out loud moments. When it's trying too hard to be wacky, it's just embarrassing. If you're looking for cool werewolf special effects or transformations, or even just cool-looking werewolves in general, this isn't the movie for you.
