Synopsis

Valerie (Amanda Seyfried) is caught in a love triangle with the man she loves—Peter, and the man who loves her, Henry (Max Irons). Meanwhile, the village is threatened by a werewolf, to whom the villagers offer up an animal sacrifice each month.

When Valerie's sister is killed by the werewolf, the villagers hire a famed werewolf hunter (Gary Oldman) to kill the beast. He informs them that the werewolf is likely one of them—a human who only changes into a werewolf during a full moon. Valerie begins to suspect both Peter and Henry of being the werewolf.

  • 2 stars "I wanted to like this movie but it was dull and inept. Nothing in this movie feel authentic from the listless love story to the lousy CGI 'wolf'. The director also seems unable of creating any tension whether suspenseful or romantic. It's a rushed movie that needed more fine tuning."
  • 5 stars "Very entertaining. I'm a Mom who brought my 7 yr old daughter and didn't think I'd enjoy it that much, but I really did! We saw it again with my husband and 10 yr old son and they thoroughly enjoyed it as well. My daughter thinks she's going to marry JB one day and after seeing the movie, that would be just fine with me...lol. He's a nice boy."
