The word "werewolf" is used three times in the movie: once in a news report Gavin is watching online, once spoken by Eric, and the very last line of the movie as spoken by Gavin. See more »

"Twilight" Ruined Werewolves' Horror, but "Wer" Brings Them Back.
When "Twilight" saga ruined the horror of werewolf, thanks to "Wer" for successfully bringing werewolf-film back to right track : brutal, terrifying and thrilling. Despite of predictable plot from the middle until the end film, "Wer" is unexpectedly excellent and interesting to watch, with half of this story enriches by the mystery element. If you think found-footage film's always being horrible in plot and execution such as The Devil Inside or Paranormal Activity's franchise, believe me, "Wer" is different case. I think "Wer" is the best found-footage film since "Chronicles" hits box office in 2012.
At the end, I must admit that "Wer" makes werewolves scary again, brings it become the best werewolf film since "An American Werewolf In London". I gave it 9 stars out of 10.
