Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this dark, poorly edited horror movie has plenty of violence, including multi-gun shootouts, careening cars, and werewolf attacks (bloody, shredding flesh, usually in deep shadow). The narrator, a nearly 13-year-old boy, has a difficult relationship with relatives that he's just discovered are werewolves (the fact that they've lied to him his whole life creates a lot of tension). A female werewolf shows cleavage and midriff as she chomps on her victims; some beer and liquor is shown in a bar scene. Language is relatively mild, including several "hells" and fewer uses of both "s--t" and "damn."

Sexual Content

Female werewolf shows cleavage and midriff; sex scene between Sonja and Varek might be a transition from a rape/attack on a female saloon patron, but the scenes are poorly edited, so it's hard to tell -- at any rate, the sex shows sweaty-chested, bloody-faced Varek looking triumphant.

Violence

Lots of insinuated, darkly shadowed, silhouetted violence, with dripping blood a repeated effect. Wounded bodies appear in various contortions, including hanging upside down and arrayed as if crucified. Boy has repeated nightmare flashes (a "home invasion" scenario in which his father is dragged away). Werewolves attack victims with lots of growling, leaping, and flesh-ripping sounds. Shooting sprees galore: When werewolves aren't tearing at human flesh, they're shooting at one another. Werewolves' transformations (hair sprouting, noses growing, etc.) are violent and alarming to a young boy who witnesses them changing. Heroes' truck flips over violently. Following her kidnapping, Kat is left hanging in the woods, emulating a bloody crucifixion.

Language

Mild and pretty infrequent language includes "goddamn," "s--t," "screw this, "little prick," and "What the hell is happening?"

Social Behavior

The difference between the good and bad werewolves is that the first group represses their urges by chaining themselves up once a month, while the bad ones want to eat everyone.

Consumerism
