Customer Reviews

Too bad there's not much else to recommend.
Michael Butts
For you dedicated fans of werewolf films, fans of therianthropy, or other more accepting horror buffs, you may find some enjoyment if you check this film out.
C. Chung
The acting is terrible, even from the actors with experience.

The most original aspect of HYENAS is the maniacal laugh of the "hyenathropes." It's classically bad!
Too bad there's not much else to recommend. You get SAW's Costas Mandylor as the typical husband/father out for revenge; busty but talentless Christa Campbell as the alpha female hyena; laughably bad special FX; and even DESIGNING WOMEN's Meschach Taylor's messianic hyena hunter.
It's all a cinematic mess but it's oddly enjoyable, one of those joyous guilty pleasures. Just don't expect THE HOWLING and you'll be ok!

Hyenas is a weak movie, even by straight-to-video standards. It doesn't deserve a full-length review, so here are 10 reasons why you should pass on watching it.

1. The acting is terrible, even from the actors with experience.
2. The color correction is bad, giving it that low-budget feel.
3. The CGI and special effects are downright awful.
4. The film's twist is predictable halfway through.
5. There's entirely too much weak dialogue.
6. The sub-plot involving rival teens serves no purpose.
7. The story jumps several years with no explanation.
8. There's only one scene in the film that gives it a funny, campy feel.
9. The race-based arguing in the movie was totally unnecessary.
10. Every Christa Campbell nude scene has her nipples CGI-removed.

This movie had potential. With a better cast, better writing, improved CGI, and a campy horror feel, it could have made for a good watch. I wouldn't even suggest renting this one through Redbox, let alone buying the DVD.

The movie starts out with a woman and child being killed and eaten by shape-shifting hyenas. The first thing you will notice is that the faces of the hyenas move about as much as a rubber mask with red lights in the eye sockets. There is a first person narration by Briggs (Maxie J. Santillan Jr.) sitting by a camp fire talking in the past tense to fill in plot points they didn't have time to film. His narration seems to have been written for Tony Todd, which they most likely couldn't afford. Crazy Briggs is able to convince Gannon (the man's who family was killed) that it was shape-shifting hyenas who did it. (In this movie we find out snipes don't really exist.) The sound track was awful as it seems to have been taken from a TV movie.

Within a few movie time minutes they have become seasoned veterans who are now being hunted by the hyenas and they have a partner who has a BMW that won't start. (My friend had one like that. Hit the starter with a hammer, the bendix is stuck.). It seems the "alpha female" is dying which is why they are coming after the hunters, a connection I didn't grasp.

"B" movie queen and silicon lover Christa Campbell plays a shape-shifter. She is the one that has to remove her skimpy top before changing.

There is a subplot of townies vs. Mexicans, involving a blond girl and her brother. They manage to bark out dialouge and acting usually reserved for an Asylum film production.

Amanda Aardsma with a gaunt Susan Dey face plays Valerie, a woman saved by Briggs and Gannon who parades around in undies and a tank top, thanks.

The movie has its predictable twist and ending.

No f-bombs that I recall. The nudity which the box claims exists, looks more like body suits designed to make one look naked, i.e. CG nudity. The movie was poorly written and directed thanks to Eric Weston.
