In accordance with the Navajos' legend, a thirteen year-old boy will finish with the curse of the powerful Skinwalkers, a.k.a. werewolves. The half-breed boy Timothy is raised by his human mother Rachel and protected by his Skinwalkers relatives since he was born. 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.Written by

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.
Skinwalkers are actually from Navajo mythology. They are supposed to be people who put on the skin of animals and take on the attributes of said animal. Well, that's not really what "Skinwalkers" the movie is about. It's about werewolves who are in an argument that's been raging for centuries.
What if some werewolves didn't want to be werewolves and other werewolves loved being werewolves? That's the basic premise for this B-movie avalanche of gun fights and claws called "Skinwalkers." It starts off quickly and never stops moving. There's plenty of action and hot bodies and the occasional Werewolf wearing Levis. The cinematography is good and gives the movie nice a look especially in the night scenes. There's a huge battle at the end that is very fun.
Overall, I'd say this is not a great movie but fun enough to see it on the big screen. Also, they are giving away one of the Skinwalkers from the movie or something. That's cool.
