Storyline

In Cameroon, a group of hunters is attacked by a wild animal, and Charlie Cowley survives but sees his brother Scott dying. Hyperbolically, seven years later, his teenage nephew Derek Cowley steals the key of his stepfather's cabin in the isolated Fire Road 13 and travels with four classmates and his friend Sam to spend the weekend having a party with booze and sex. However, they are attacked by a beast that kills his friends in a sadistic way. Sam and Derek survive, and they suspect that his stepfather, Mitchell Toblat, is a werewolf. When Charlie meets Derek and Sam, they decide to collect evidence to prove that Mitchell is the beast and kill him, but Mitchell discovers their plot and chases the trio. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Werewolfs one-liners
23 May 2007 | by mrguugelballerSee all my reviews

It's the Big Bad Wolf, and it has some "funny" phrases for it's victims. That's almost all you can say about this werewolf-flick. The main idea with the writers seems to have been the misleading start, which is a nice surprise, but after that the movie limps in a tarpit for a while, until the clihcé ending. Even though there's some innovative (but corny) scenes, it doesn't save the fact that it's not believable. It tries hard to be believable but f.e. the whole marriage abuse thing...c'mon. There is gore, and its good at times. There is a werewolf cracking black jokes. And there's teens in trouble. The plot is somewhat mediocre, and I can believe that the writers have worked it. But it always amazes me why they tend to forget the police forces from this kind of movies. And you'll understand what I mean if you watch this movie. Acting is at time to time good, but the main character is really, really one dimensional.

So 5 stars and thats because of two reasons. First of all, werewolf-movies are a rare breed in 21-century so i'm kind of supporting the fact that these are even made and second of all, the gore is fine.
