    Watching the movie is a little like picking up issue #42 of a comic book after you've skipped the first 41: There's an entire back story mythos hovering in the background like a phantom limb.

    It stands alongside this year's other werewolf disaster, "Blood and Chocolate," in illustrating why the moon should set on the werewolf movie.
  3. A thoroughly undistinguished addition to a genre that probably reached its peak a quarter-century ago with "An American Werewolf in London."
  4. Yawningly directed by Jim Isaac, Skinwalkers is a slavering mess that buries its clunky addiction metaphor beneath a welter of genre clich├ęs, all delivered in extra-slow motion.

    Shapeshifters-lite. Fangs but no fangs.

    It is very important that I write that this gets a 3 in terms of films. By that I mean that it is a horrible movie when compared to actual legitimate movies. However in terms of bad movies that are fun to watch and make fun of then this is a 7 or 8. This movie is hysterical and has so many doofy things in it that it makes a great bad movie night movie. If you love watching movies in the spirit of MST3K then check this out. If you are a serious person then stay away. Full Review »
