Plot Summary

His 13th birthday fast drawing near, an unsuspecting young boy on the verge of a remarkable transformation remains completely unaware that an ancient prophecy is set to be fulfilled with the rising of the red moon. To most folks, 12-year-old Timmy (Matthew Knight) would seem an average adolescent with a bright future on the horizon. In the tiny town of Huguenot, however, nothing is as it seems. As Timmy's health rapidly begins to take a turn for the worse, his concerned mother, Rachel (Rhona Mitra), does her best to care for the ailing young boy. Though his mother may not have a clue as to what fate is about to befall her frightened child, a group of specially appointed guardians who have been watching over Timmy since birth know the truth about the events that are beginning to unfold. Timmy is a half-blood, and when the red moon is full, the creature who once appeared to be a normal boy will finally gain the power to take control of his family's destiny. But until that fateful night, Timmy's life will be in constant danger by the renegade faction of lycanthropes who are willing to kill in order to maintain their vicious way of life. It won't be long until the red moon rises, but until that prophesied moment, the forces of light and the forces of darkness will clash in the ultimate battle for true supremacy. Jason X director James Isaac takes the helm for a frightening tale of fate and fantasy co-starring Elias Koteas, Jason Behr, and Kim Coates.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Yawningly directed by Jim Isaac, Skinwalkers is a slavering mess that buries its clunky addiction metaphor beneath a welter of genre cliches, all delivered in extra-slow motion. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: Skinwalkers plays more like '70s drive-in fare than a monster mash of recent vintage. – Joe Leydon, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: A thoroughly undistinguished addition to a genre that probably reached its peak a quarter-century ago with An American Werewolf in London. – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Skinwalkers is never able to escape its fundamental preposterousness. You've seen worse, but, trust me, you've seen better. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Nov 24, 2011

not a bad show

its actually pretty good, for those who are looking for werewolf shows, this is a type of movie you might like....

He's even hot as the bad guy. . .

Ok, so the movie was a LITTle bit of a disappointment, but it really wasn't all THAT bad. It definitely had a chick feel to it, but I'm sure none of the women viewers minded. . .I waited a LOOOOOONG time for this movie to finally be released, and although it wasn't all I thought it would be, watching Jason Behr in anything is worth it. Besides, you can't get much better than Granny with that great BIG gun, that scene alone is worth the rent.

Confused & Horrendous

This movie can't decide what it wants to be - it's barely an action pic and it certainly isn't a horror movie in any way, shape, or form... based loosely on Native American myth of shapeshifters (yet ANOTHER insult-reason to fleece the white man at casinos), it tries desperately to be a poor man's "Underworld" without stars... or blood... or effects... or plot... or Kate Beckinsale in leather fetish gear... throw in the terrible continuity and rediculous editting and you have this mess. I kept waiting for the campy fun of a bad movie, but what I got was a sleep aid. Good werewolves vs. Bad Werewolves, and yet they use guns most of the time... and it's like watching an episode of the A-Team, no one ever gets hurt with all of this gunplay. There's no plot, no decent action, no effects outside some Apple Final Cut trippy picture gimmicks and some plastic teeth you can buy at CVS Pharmacy every Holloween... there ain't even no boobs, y'all... it's an embarrassment both to producers and audience alike, and it'll make you feel like hunting down the entire cast and crew in order to neuter them with a dull spoon. Stay away... very, VERY far away.
