When Gavin is shaving himself of his hair, the last thing he shaves is his left eyebrow, but in the next, cut-to scene when he starts looking up into the mirror, the eyebrow is unshaven, and the same for when he starts screaming into the mirror in the next shot. See more »
Saw this on a DVD in 2014. Was reluctant as i cannot stand found footage. I hate hand held shaky cam stuff. But the good reviews on IMDb prompted me to pick this DVD. The film begins showing a family brutally attacked by something unknown. The surviving member recounts a story of something resembling a tall, hairy man with huge hands that attacked the family. A man who lives near the location of the attack, closely resembles the description and is immediately apprehended by local authorities. Next v c his newly appointed lawyer who gains the mans trust enough to speak to her. From a found footage, it turns into an investigate mystery n later turns into an excellent creature on the loose n full blown action flick. The special effects and makeup were first-rate. Especially the makeup used to create the victims of the werewolf attacks were realistic. Some really good news for ppl who r fed up with pg13 horror. This movie is a breath of fresh air for werewolves movie lovers. The movie is loaded with gruesome killings and gore sights. The mutilated bodies of the victims and the threatening figure of the gigantic beast on the loose was full of tension n mayhem. The beast in this movie is fast, viscous and has a nasty tendency of tearing off its victims' bottom jaw. The explanation given in the movie for the creature/transformation was something new.
