Goofs

In werewolf lore they change shape when the full moon rises. However, the boyfriend says he can feel the change coming on, then looks out the window and we can see that the moon has already risen high into the sky. He is then shown locked in the cage in the basement and he still hasn't changed yet. See more »

Enjoyable and entertaining. SyFy's best yet!
7 November 2010 | by Michael_TakesSee all my reviews

I really do NOT understand why people insist on watching movies that they know are movie of the week, straight to DVD, cable flicks or in this case SyFy movies and then complain about the production value, or the low budget.

Red: Werewolf Hunter IS a SyFy movie. It probably did not have a huge budget. It is still a very enjoyable film! A terrific cast including Felicia Day, Kavan Smith, Greg Bryk, and Stephen McHattie each delivered terrific overall performances. The premise was a new take on the Red Riding Hood theme and while a little underdeveloped is really a great idea. The special effects/ CGI were better then the other reviews may have you believe, and fun to watch.

My advise is to watch this with an open mind. Know when you begin that this is a SyFy movie and was probably made for less then James Cameron spent on his toilet paper when filming Avatar. It is not supposed to win Oscars. It is supposed to entertain, thrill and maybe scare you.

A terrific Friday night flick. Hire this with Dog Soldiers, The Howling, Teen Wolf, and The Wolfman, call over some friends, order some pizza, grab a few six packs and settle in for a fun night. Just not during a full moon!
