Director and writer David Hayter came up with the idea of the film after turning down similar projects. His script was originally titled "Slaughter's Road". See more »
When Cayden gets hit in mid air playing football he hits the ground and fumbles the ball. You can see the ball bouncing off in the background. When the camera switches angles you can now see Cayden has the football in his hands. See more »
The teenager Cayden Richards (Lucas Till) lives in a small town with his parents Dean Richards (Stephen Sparks) and Janice Richards (Jennifer Hale) and is having violent nightmares. He is the quarterback of the local football team and his girlfriend Lisa Stewart (Kaitlyn Leeb) is a cheerleader. After a game, Lisa decides to have sex with Cayden for the first time in the car. However he transforms into a monster and she flees from him. He goes home and finds his parents murdered. He leaves town hitchhiking while he is wanted by the police and he learns that his parents were actually stepparents.
Cayden decides to find his origins and helps a prostitute at a truck stop that is assaulted by two men. Then he steals the motorcycle of one of the men and later he stops at a bar where he meets the weird Wild Joe (John Pyper-Ferguson). The stranger identifies that Cayden is a wolf and gives the direction to Lupine Ridge. Cayden arrives in a bar owned by the teenagers Angelina "Angel" Timmins (Merritt Patterson) and Gail Timmins (Melanie Scrofano) and he asks for a job, telling that his name is Danny. However he is not welcomed by the locals and he leaves the bar. But a man called John Tollerman (Stephen McHattie) hires him to work in his farm where he lives with his wife Clara Tollerman (Janet- Laine Green). Soon Cayden learns that John is his uncle and his mother was raped by the local leader Connor (Jason Momoa). He also finds that he is a pure town wolf together with John, Angeline, Gail and two other inhabitants. Connor is also pure, but has formed a pack of impure wolves and has a pact with the inhabitants to leave them in peace. But he is getting old and wants to have a baby with Angelina as part of the deal. But the problem is, Cayden and Angelina has fallen in love for each other and Cayden intends to stop Connor.
"Wolves" is an entertaining adventure underrated in IMDb maybe because it is indicating the horror genre, frustrating the fans of this genre. The plot is predictable but the characters are charismatic; Lucas Till and Merritt Patterson have a great chemistry; and the special effects and fight choreography are excellent. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Lobos" ("Wolves")
