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.
Rotten: Skinwalkers plays more like '70s drive-in fare than a monster mash of recent vintage.
Rotten: A thoroughly undistinguished addition to a genre that probably reached its peak a quarter-century ago with An American Werewolf in London.
Rotten: Skinwalkers is never able to escape its fundamental preposterousness. You've seen worse, but, trust me, you've seen better.
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.
Need I Say That This Film Is Bad???
Horrendous story -- and not in a good way. Terrible acting. Immature and mediocre directing from the first frame to the end of the credits. Do not buy/rent this awful mess.
