His grandmother Nana, his uncle Jonas, his cousin Katherine, her boyfriend Adam and their friend Doak have kept the secret about his bloodline and neither Timothy nor Rachel know the tragic curse. A couple of days before Timothy's thirteenth birthday, a pack of evil Skinwalkers that have tasted blood led by the evil Varek chases the boy while his family protects him.

Quotes

Varek: Don't make me do something I don't want to do. Join me. We're one and the same.
Jonas: I'm nothing like you.
Varek: I am what I was meant to be. You live a lie... we were wrong. I know what you're feeling, trust me.
Jonas: Trust you? You're killing fellow human beings.
Varek: I am NOT human. And I will not risk spending the rest of my days as one. Deseased and flawed... we're better than that.

Alternate Versions

Outside the USA, the film was released uncut. In the USA, the movie originally received an R rating and was subsequently edited for a PG-13:
  • Uses of the words "shit", "fuck" and "cocksucker" were removed.
  • A man hanging upside-down from a tree is shot by Varek. In the original, he graphically stabs himself in the eye with Grenier's knife before Wendy Crewson's character can shoot him.
  • The scene in the bar is less graphic with a quickly edited montage of the wolves feeding and having sex. In the original, there are clear shots of the wolves feeding/tearing flesh, and having sex with nudity and movement.
  • During the hospital shootout, in the uncut version, Grenier is graphically shot in the head.

Disappointing Film
3 August 2007 | by verypickymoviegoerSee all my reviews

Here is an example of a film trying to be more than what it is. If only it stuck to all action and special effects instead of trying to develop characters and drama. Because of the introduction of a plot and the constant in your face force feeding of hollow characters, I must take the review to go beyond what I wanted it to be.

The special effects were really cheesy and made the film seem like a very low budget movie. There are a lot of plot holes. The acting was bad to mediocre. It is very hard to try to feel a bond or sympathy with the characters.

Summary: Those who watch for torture and gore will hate the film. Those who watch for drama and complex characters will hate the film. Those who watch for special effects will hate the film. Those who watch for pure action might enjoy half of the film. Those who watch for groundbreaking unique horror movies will hate the film.
