The relationship between Eric and Stephanie is floundering. They decide to leave for the Republic of Santiago to visit the famous ruins. Once there, they learn that a serial killer rages on steep roads of the region, eliminating drunk drivers.
A British Squad is sent on a training mission in the Highlands of Scotland against Special Operations squad. Ignoring the childish "campfire" stories heard about the area, they continue with their mission and come across the bloody remains of the Special Ops Squad, and a fierce howling is pitching the night sky... With two mortally wounded men, they make an escape, running into a zoologist by the name of Megan - who knows exactly what hunts them. What began as what they thought was a training mission turns into a battle for their lives against the most unlikely enemies they would have expected - werewolves.Written by
The film is a motif of the classic fairytales Little Red Riding Hood - Sgt Wells name drops her, Bruce strays from the beaten path and immediately gets killed, Megan turns out to be a werewolf disguised as a human. Goldilocks & The Three Bears - the soldiers find food on the stove and help themselves, and Cooper mockingly compares the werewolves to the three bears later on. Fittingly Cooper is the only blond in the group as well. The Three Little Pigs - the soldiers barricade themselves in a house to protect from the big bad wolves. The house gets literally blown down in the climax. See more »
In the farmhouse Cooper asks Megan where the nearest town is, Megan replies Fort William a four hour drive away. Now this isn't really true , anyone who lives in Scotland can drive from the East to the West coast passing through countless town and villages in that time and even drive from the border with England to the very tip at John O Groats in the same time. So Scotland isn't that big. See more »
I must admit that I was pretty skeptical when i picked it up from the rack at my DVD retailer. A werewolf movie? Aren't they generally so bad no one wants to watch them/buy them? The fact that it was on sale didn't help, but I braced myself and got it figuring that if it was bad, I'd bury it in some deep deep cave and never let it out. But the movie got me out of my seat with excitement and enjoyment at the action and the thrills. I remember checking the time on the DVD player and wincing at the fact I had only half an hour of film left to enjoy. True, I have seen better special effects. And true some things aren't very realistic (and the producers acknowledge those things). But for a studio I have never heard of with a budget far inferior to those of Hollywood super productions, I found those effects very well done.
A very good movie that gave me thrills I hadn't had since the first Predator.
