Trivia

The other of only two produced movies in a planned but never finished quadrilogy of updated remakes of the four classic Universal monster movies - Frankenstein, Wolfman, Dracula and The Mummy. The remakes of first two films came out as Frankenstein Reborn! and Werewolf Reborn!. The final two films only had movie posters made for them. Before the whole project got canceled, there were even ideas of producing further remakes of classic Universal monster movies like the Creature from the Black Lagoon. See more »

A failed attempt.
6 April 2005 | by Teknofobe70See all my reviews

The premise of this movie is simple -- it's a werewolf story for the new teen generation.

It's not a bad attempt at this ... it's just not particularly good. It came out at the same time as "Frankenstein Reborn!", which was attempting to do the same with that story. Both are aimed at a fairly young audience, so neither of them are all that horrifying and they both feature teenage girl protagonists. Basically, they're TV movies, and pretty average ones at that. There's some good stuff here, but it's outweighed by the mediocre.

Robin Atkin Downes does a great job as the lycanthropic uncle, and Len Lesser (of Seinfeld fame) is pretty good as the unbelieving inspector. The special effects aren't bad at all. It's difficult to think of anything else about the movie which is remarkable, in the same way that it's difficult to pick out anything worth criticising.

It's okay for 12-14 year olds who are interested in the genre, but even they might find it a little boring, and there's very little here for anyone else. It's certainly not a movie I'll be watching again any time soon.
