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
