The truth is frightening: Good werewolf movies are hard to find. Too often the creature designs are uninspiring. The films typically rely on unrealistic CGI for their monsters, or on the other end of the spectrum, feature cringe-worthy makeup. Perhaps worst of all are the formulaic plots which simply have, well, no bite.
Wolves is hoping to break that werewolf curse. Arriving on VOD October 16th, before its limited theatrical run on November 14th, Wolves revolves around Cayden (Lucas Till), a popular high school football player with lots of friends, a pretty girlfriend and a promising future. However, when Cayden’s feral spirit begins to emerge and his parents end up ripped to shreds, he blames himself. Now on the run, a confused Cayden’s search for answers lead him to Lupine Ridge, a small town entirely populated by werewolves. At the local bar, Cayden immediately becomes smitten with owner Angelina (Merritt Patterson). He also encounters the movie’s big bad wolf, Connor (Jason Momoa), who doesn’t take kindly to strangers.
