Storyline

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 Dismal Angel

Trivia

Neil Marshall was understandably disappointed that the film didn't receive a theatrical release in the U.S. and instead premiered on The Sci-Fi Channel. (This was before the name change to Syfy.) "I think that was partly a lack of courage on the part of the producers that they took the first deal that was offered to them." Marshall says it did get a one-week run at L.A.'s Egyptian Theater, and he's happily run into several people who actually saw it there. See more »

Goofs

The film never makes it clear whether or not military weapons will kill the werewolves and and what point this might occur. Several characters are shown to be killed while changing into werewolves; however several werewolves are shown to be hit by multiple gunshots and suffering few, if any, ill effects. See more »

Best Horror Flick In Years
19 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

This has got to be the best supernatural movie i have ever seen. For several reasons.

1. The werewolves do actually look like wolves, unlike films like Underworld where they look like a cross between a bear, a black leopard and a wrestler. They are WOLVES for gods sake how about they look like a wolf for a change.

2. Its not some cheesy heroic American bullshit. The acting and writing is awesome and realistic with each character having their own problems and personalities. There's not cheesy crap to ruin it.

3. No love interest. There is no love to confuse the story line and make it hard to understand how the characters react tot he situation and get in the way of the story unlike most modern movies.

4. Location. The idea of placing it in the remote area of the highlands is a stroke of brilliance. Its completely believable that this could happen. If you've ever looked at a map of the highlands or been there you will know what i'm talking about.

If you you are considering not watching this movie because its low budget, then forget about it, just because its low budget doesn't make it bad, in fact it makes it better cause you know that the werewolves are actually people and there is hardly any special effects.

Oh and by the way its a "Soldier movie with werewolves" not a werewolf movie. Watch the extras and you will know what I'm talking about.
