It’s a typical werewolf movie with infectious cursed theme. The story gives you a feel of knowing all especially the last 20 minutes are just so predictable. The makeup & CGI of the werewolf is average enough to spook the first timer. The transformation scene of the werewolf in the film is a proof of its lower standardized CGI & rather than scare it just looks ridiculous.
Director Wes Craven has built some nice thrill in the opening few scenes of the film but he fails to maintain it throughout. There are chances if he would project some twists & turns in the story without following common plot which runs so flat.
Recommended only for the werewolf / scary film beginners.
