Movie Info

A monstrous creature terrorizes a 19th Century European village by moonlight and a young man struggles to protect his loved ones from an unspeakable scourge in Werewolf: The Beast Among Us, Universal Studios' all-new addition to its time-honored legacy of classic monsters. During his studies with the local doctor (Stephen Rea), Daniel (Guy Wilson) witnesses the horrific consequences of werewolf attacks. Watching as the beast's fearsome reputation draws bounty hunters, thrill seekers and charlatans to the tiny town, Daniel dreams of destroying the ruthless predator. So when a mysterious stranger (Ed Quinn) and his team of skilled werewolf hunters (Stephen Bauer, Adam Croasdell) arrive to pursue the monster, he offers to join them, despite his mother's (Nia Peeples) protests. But it soon becomes clear that this creature is stronger, smarter and more dangerous than anything they have faced before. As casualties mount and villagers see their neighbors transformed into ravening monsters, the townsfolk take up arms against each other to find the true identity of the werewolf. Amid the hysteria, Daniel begins to suspect he's closer to his target than he ever dreamed.more

Audience Reviews for Werewolf: The Beast Among Us


I'm ashamed to say that I had this one laying around forever until I finally gave it a spin for my traditional Halloween viewings, and it was actually a helluva lot of fun. It felt like Gothic horror mixed with equal parts adventure film, and I dug it.


Many said the actual Wolf Man remake was bad (I didn't, in fact, I loved it) but if they ever had the chance to see this, Universal's second attempt to reboot the character, their tune would promptly change. Blatantly ignorant of established mythology (really, werewolf victims become vampires do they?) complete with a shoehorned-in attempt at an Underworld-esque finale. Oh and I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the eastern European accents that only 50% of the town has and the chief werewolf hunter with his inexplicable southern (!?) accent. The CGI is hit and miss (mostly miss) but the practical effects are quite good, I'll give the movie that much.


Better than expected, Werewolf: The Beast Among Us is way better than its cover and title suggests, but it is still a relatively crappy piece of historical, gothic horror that does little to make itself memorable...
