Director and writer David Hayter came up with the idea of the film after turning down similar projects. His script was originally titled "Slaughter's Road". See more »
When Cayden gets hit in mid air playing football he hits the ground and fumbles the ball. You can see the ball bouncing off in the background. When the camera switches angles you can now see Cayden has the football in his hands. See more »
I have to say that much of what has come out over the past 15 years has been lacking in one way or another, but particularly in originality. Additionally, stories always seem to fall short as a majority of the focus is on CGI effects and the sexual appeal to teen hormones.
I thought that this film did a fair job at being original in its plot and story. And though the story was not the greatest, it was different and it was entertaining. Nothing here was over done. As with anything, there was room for improvement, but I liked it just the same.
As for effects, the costumes and makeup were very well done. The stunts were reasonable and plausible for this type of film. Again, not over done.
I would be willing to see a sequel should the producers get the impulse to try again.
If you like werewolves, you might enjoy this film. Being a budget flick, the cost is low enough to own the DVD and not feel a pinch when you're done watching.
