One man's struggle to contain the curse he hides within... and his last-ditch attempt to free himself with the love of family. But when it looks as if he is losing his battle, and ... See full summary »
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 squad initially starts out with SA-80s in the early scenes of the film while they are still on an exercise, and then after they liberate equipment from the Special Ops Camp, the weapons are: (1) MP5s - used by Cooper, Sgt. Wells, Bruce and initially Terry; Most of the MP5s are fitted with surefire weaponlights, some have dual magazines clamped together, and several seem to have mid-range scopes installed. (2) Mossberg 500 shotgun - used by Joe; and (3) Heckler & Koch HK41-used initially by Spoon, who later trades with Terry after they are rendered stranded at the farmhouse, the weapon is later lost when Terry is dragged away by the werewolves. The flash hider was removed from the gun, a slimline handguard was fitted, and a block was attached to the receiver behind the ejection port, possibly to act as a brass deflector. The weapon can be identified as an HK41 by its lack of a paddle magazine release lever, and its two position fire selector. All sidearms in the film are 9mm Browning HPs. See more »
Right before the end of the movie, Wells couldn't have ignited the gas using the electric ignition button for the cooker, simply because the power went down shortly after they entered the house (Spoon: They shut down the generator!). See more »

American Werewolf in London, was always my favourite werewolf movie. well, this is better!
The cast are not widely known, familiar faces, but no star names, yet they all give first class performances. The dialogue is slick and realistic and the plot and characters build very well.
The gore is truly realistic and looks painful at times, similar to some of the scenes at the start of Private Ryan.
Most of the characters are rock hard nutter's, and they spout off cheesy lines like 'Come and ave a go if you think your hard enough!' and 'I Hope i give you the Sh*t's, you F*ck*n Wimp!' said just after a great fist fight with a werewolf and just before he is about to be eaten.
At no point does this movie try to take itself seriously, and that's why its so good. It really is very funny and at the same time pretty realistic (for a werewolf film). If you like the genre you simply have too see this film, if you don't your missing a treat.
9/10 Great fun
