MV5BMTI1OTIyNzc5OF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNjI1ODI1MQ@@__V1_SX214_AL_Review (Spoils): Human mother Rachel (Rhona Mitra ) protects her half-breed son Timothy (Matthew Knight ) as when he turns thirteen he will be graced with the curse of the Skinwalkers as per Navajos legends. Rachel is protected and guided with her own tribe of Skinwalkers which the whole thing is a hidden family secret from both the mother and son. There is another tribe of Skinwalkers but they are evil and lead by a savage man named Varek(Jason Behr) and he wants the boy to belong to them and eaten.

This all leads into a battle of werewolves and the hidden truth of Timothy come out and his mother must do everything to protect him. Basically it is a lower grade of the Howling meets Underworld with a touch of native feel. The film is a bunch of running, battles and werewolves hunting, eating and some blood lust. The special effects were ok but the whole transformation piece was missing and there just was not enough gore for me. Sure we have a score of werewolf babes but the plot was just lacking and there was not enough meat to carry this through. Plus Jason Behr was not a good villain.

Rating: Very lacking story and way more action then gore so to me this film was boring in a way. I hate the whole gang of good vs evil especially when it about werewolves. Plus why does everyone in town have a goddamn gun and not know how to shoot it?
