Customer Reviews

For a werewolf/horror film, where's the suspense or excitement?
N. Durham
The only thing about it that works is its consistency in being a bad movie, which, believe me, is not saying very much.
Chris Pandolfi
I think that this movie had a good cast their acting was not all that bad.

What a great twist on a werewolf movie! Two tribes of werewolves are at war with one another. One group wants a cure for their full moon 'curse', but another clan is perfectly happy having the power that comes with being a meat eating werewolf, running with the pack and howling at the moon. The aggressive clan takes on the more peaceful group and a young boy may be the only hope for the werewolves desperate to end the madness.

well, first of all, ignore the first reviewer. obviously that guy gets entirely to deep into his movies. that being said, i thought this movie was ok, i mean ive seen better but ive also seen far worse. The reason i saw it was because jason behr was in it, and he freakin gorgeous! If youre just looking to watch something a little entertaining, go for it. This is not a movie, however, for those of you who need to constantly overthink everything in the film, lol, its just pure cheesy entertainment really. i give it 3 stars because as ive said, ive seen better but also seen far worse. want to see a really good werewolf movie? check out The Howling. a little old school but still pretty good.

Format: DVD
Werewolves will never be as popular as vampires. They're not pretty, seductive or eerie -- instead they're hairy, messy and presumably smelly.

Despite that, there was still plenty of potential for a cool werewolf action movie... until "Skinwalkers" actually came out. Instead, we get a sketchy, paper-thin plot about bikers who happen to be werewolves, and who (of course) have to kill the foretold Chosen One.

Said Chosen One is a boy who will turn thirteen, around the time that a red moon rises -- apparently this will decurse all lycanthropes, for no reason except that it's prophecied. But Varek (Jason Behr) and his vicious biker gang don't WANT to give up the perks of being werewolves, so they're prowling around to find the child and kill him before his big birthday rolls around.

Tim (Matthew Knight) is unaware of the danger he's in. Fortunately, relatives and friends surrounding him know exactly what he is, and hope to be cured of their affliction. But to keep Tim safe, they will have to battle Varek and his big bad gang, despite vowing never to commit any acts of werewolfen violence.

Yeah, it's pretty much the script for any derivative fantasy story -- there's a lazily-explained prophecy about the Big Savior (nobody ever explains where these prophecies come from), evil people who want to kill him, and good people who are keeping him safe. You'll find all this in "Skinwalkers," and not a lot more.

Instead, we get a lot of werewolves acting crazy and very, very evil. Gore. Bad editing during a rape scene. More gore. Shots of the moon. Shooting, lots of long tangled hair, motorcycles, and sexy women wearing leather.

I know that this movie got generally bad reviews but I've gotta say, I liked it. Was it the best werewolf movie I've ever seen? No, it definitely wasn't, but I enjoyed watching it. One of those movies where you just take it for what it is...and I always enjoy watching Jason Behr, he's a great actor.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Stephen B. O'Blenis on February 28, 2008
Format: DVD
One of the best traditional werewolf tales to come along in any medium in ages, "Skinwalkers" - named after a Native American term for human-animal shapechangers - features a rivalry between opposing factions of werewolves (a favorite theme in more contemporary werewolf movies), and centers on a prophesied child who it's foretold will play a major role in the history of the werewolf struggle.

Rather than being an immensely powerful new breed of werewolf, the blood of the child is supposed to hold a cure for the werewolf condition. Hence, he's seen as a blessing by the skinwalkers who fight their condition and a menace by those who relish their lycanthropy. In the world of "Skinwalkers", the lycanthropic condition is highly feral, driven by a ferocious bloodlust and, usually, by radical changes in temperament, especially when the werewolf has consumed fresh blood. In this way it's very different from tales like the "Underworld" movies (which are also great, just in a different way) and most other recent werewolf films, where the creature often retains high intelligence and, while primal, a degree of control over itself. Actually, the 'modern' take is more true to real wolves, while the 'traditional' werewolf is a near-mindless, snarling, frothing, kill-'em-for-the-sake-of-killing, monster. And this is the breed in Skinwalkers, although many of those afflicted with the curse struggle against their other selves, and with the help of non-affected human allies, have found ways to contain the killing fury, including being strapped into specially constructed immobile harnesses before night falls during the full moon.

Skinwalkers / B000VSDNFA

*Spoilers*

I wanted to like "Skinwalkers", in the same vein that I like a lot of low-budget productions, but I just can't. It's not so much that there's anything wrong with it, so much as it's just so shallow and watered-down that it's hard to stay focused on the movie long enough to make it to the end.

The acting is fine, really - in fact, much better than I usually expect from a hastily thrown together B-movie. And it's nice to see the actress from Beowulf, who seems to specialize in iron-willed women who take horror movie events nicely in stride - something that most movies won't allow their heroines to do. And while the special effects are few and far between, and monstrously cheap when they do show up, I can accept that because god knows movies are expensive enough without having to try to make 'werewolves' look more like wolves and less like vampires with some extra body hair tagged on.

No, what really sinks "Skinwalkers" is not the B-movie acting, or the low special effects budget, or the cookie-cutter 'chosen one' plot. What sinks it is how incredibly slow and shallow it feels as the actors slog to the finish line. There are a few good moments here, such as the shoot-out in the town'o'werewolves (although the whole thing is somewhat marred by the fact that, though the townspeople prepared enough in advance to plant guns under every bench and doorstep, they apparently then failed to *practice* shooting them or even learn how to AIM), but for the most part the entire movie is based around a bunch of people standing around and talking incessantly about irrelevant topics.
