Critic Consensus: Skinwalkers is an atrociously-acted project whose unoriginal and ineptly-staged action sequences remind viewers of far better werewolf and action movies.

Critic Reviews for Skinwalkers
A throwback to workmanlike '70s and '80s-era low-budget action thrillers.
Skinwalkers is never able to escape its fundamental preposterousness. You've seen worse, but, trust me, you've seen better.
On the fright scale, this pack of werewolves ranks below a basket of puppies.
The problem with most werewolf movies isn't that they're derivative, but that they're badly written, badly acted, or just plain silly. Skinwalkers hits the trifecta: all three apply.
Yawningly directed by Jim Isaac, Skinwalkers is a slavering mess that buries its clunky addiction metaphor beneath a welter of genre clichés, all delivered in extra-slow motion.
Audience Reviews for Skinwalkers
well it doesnt leave much to the imagination!! its alrght movie with alright fight sequences but its just predictable and annoyingly boring in some places!
I love werewolf and vampire movies, my fav, but this is kind disappointing. The story is stretched, a boy must survive to his 12th or 13th birthday so he can 'cure' the werewolf curse, some want this some dont. But the ending makes this kinda unimportant seeing as its up to the individual werewolf wether he wants to be cured or not. The effects are Stan Winston so they're hot but nothing special, Im afraid there's just nothing new to do with vamps and werewolfs now, its all been done. This is very average really there's nothing outstanding and the cast is pretty mudane too.
A low budget werewolf film with a good idea but poor execution. The werewolves look quite odd and the plot is far too simple and obvious. Gingersnaps or Dog Soldiers are much better!
