When six college kids in a sleepy Southern town are assigned a group project to rediscover a moment in history, one of them sets in motion a horrific fate when he proposes they head into the Georgia backwoods to tackle the legend of Emily Burt, the Talbot County werewolf. "Lycan" is a Hitchcockian tale of horror set in 1986 that delves into a hundred year old fable where our students are met with very real consequences that go beyond any classroom lessons.Written by

You could forgive the lack of a budget, you could forgive the bad acting. The direction is actually not terrible for what there is to work with What you can't forgive is the last quarter of the film where it suddenly dawns on everybody involved, "Oh yeah, an explanation and an ending, I knew we forgot something!" and it just throws stuff against the wall in a hurried jumble to get the film over with. The explanations for the explanation are non-existent. The logic to anyone's actions, which at least had been standard horror fare up to them, go right out the window. I hope the Director Bev Land get's another shot, the camera work is fine, especially for the money available to work with, it's the plot, and some poor acting that let it down in the end.
