Storyline

In 1974, amoral CIA agent Butler and his inexperienced young colleague locate a Hungarian castle where, according to classified CIA data, a werewolf lives. Their mission is to take a sample of its blood and bring it back to the States for research. The idea is to eventually create an army of soldiers with werewolf-like abilities and resistance to harm. This secret project is dubbed Project: Metalbeast. However, the research is slow and they eventually nearly run out of werewolf blood, so Butler, unhinged, injects himself with the little blood that's left and turns into a werewolf. He goes on a killing spree inside of the CIA research facility but is shot with silver bullets by his boss, Miller. Miller covers everything up and arranges for Butler and his victims' bodies to be cryogenically frozen. 20 years later, a team of medical scientists led by doctor Anna de Carlo, who's obsessed with finding a way to create artificial skin that could help those in need of skin transplant, is ...

Goofs

When Dr. De Carlo is arguing with Miller about the safety of using Butler as a test subject he state it's perfectly safe because the body came from the cryonics lab in Langley and germ warfare research is done on Plum Island in New York. Such research did take place there in the 50's the scope was limited to weapons targeting animal and livestock and ended in 1969 when Presdent Nixon banned biological weapon research. See more »

Quotes

Miller: [to Donald as he is being frozen] While you're in there, try to work on that attitude.

BETTER THAN I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE BUT STILL A LITTLE SHADY
8 June 2001 | by MORSEL75See all my reviews

I RENTED this movie and i thought it would be a waste of time like these unheard of low budget movies usually are ,but i was little surprised to see that it was actually pretty good(not great or anything but pretty good for a low budget film) so if you like werewolf movies like i do and your lying in bed bored go ahead and rent it(if you like werewolf movies).my wife hated it of course but for the true horror fan it's not a complete waste of time.out of four stars for a low budget movie i give it ** stars
