Storyline

In 1887, the powerful vampire Lilith is vanquished by a vampire council and four amulets avoid her return to the world of living. In the present days, the greedy Realtor Russel Bayne is pressing Alex Layton to sell her store of esoteric products to him. While driving back home, Russel stops his Ferrari to help a young woman that has troubles with her Volkswagen Beetle in a lonely road. However, they are attacked by a werewolf and Russel transforms into one a couple of nights later. Meanwhile, a vampire clan led by the evil Von Griem is retrieving the ancient amulets to bring Lilith back. When Von Griem's minions try to abduct Russel, Alex helps him and Russel teams up with Jacob Van Helsing and his peer group to avoid the return of the devilish Lilith.

Showed great promise but fell well short
1 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Despite it being SyFy, Wolvesbayne did have a decent premise going for it. But for me it fell well short. Wolvesbayne isn't completely terrible, the werewolf transformation is decent, Jeremy London does what he can with an uninvolving leading role(in terms of character that is) and Yancy Butler as the evil vampire queen is sexy and seems to be enjoying herself even if she does verge on hammy in places. However, the remainder of the acting is not great at all, Mark Damascos is badly used with his big scenes very poorly written and anti-climatic, while a lot of the female roles read of looking as sexy as possible but little else.

There are cheaper SyFy movies out there certainly, but the special effects are dire and some of the make-up is cheesy looking. The editing is choppy, even in the battle sequences. The battle sequences themselves are a disaster, there is no tension or anything compelling, there are too many characters on screen, the camera work is often incomprehensible and so fast in construction that it is difficult to make anything out and they also go on for far too long. The random shots of models are also very hokey and add absolutely nothing to the movie. The scenery is not necessarily bad, though they do lack atmosphere, but because of the rest of the visuals being so bad I couldn't enjoy it.

What also matters hugely into making a good film also fails utterly. That is especially true in the story. This story had a lot of potential as there are some good ideas here. What was frustrating however was the case with most SyFy movies that have good ideas, Wolvebayne does next to nothing with these ideas. Any important parts are rushed through, and a lot of not so important parts are ridiculously dragged out. I also struggled to see if there was a story at all, it took forever to get going and when anything did happen it just didn't make sense for me. The script is incredibly clunky, while the characters are cardboard cut-outs that we know nothing about by the end of the film. The lead role is no exception here, he had potential also but his progression goes nowhere.

Overall, fell well short despite its initial promise. 3/10 Bethany Cox
