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.

Don't make me do something I don't want to do. Join me. We're one and the same.
I'm nothing like you.
I am what I was meant to be. You live a lie... we were wrong. I know what you're feeling, trust me.
Trust you? You're killing fellow human beings.
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.

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 will smooth the itch of werewolf fans. Despite having some flaws in the story, like empty towns full of werewolfs, the action will make up for it. Directed by James Isaac, The story is about a 12 year old boy caught in the crossfire between two warring werewolf clans. One consists of werewolves happy to feed on humans, while the other camp believes they're cursed and are trying to find a way to become fully human again. The chase scenes and guns are superb. The movie is a lot of special effects but otherwise a good one to go and watch with a friend or a girlfriend. This movie does not compare to the werewolf classics in the past as far as story line, but it does a good job showing that not all werewolf's believe in the werewolf philosophy of biting people and taking names.
