It's obvious at times that Skinwalkers tries to emulate Kathryn Bigelow's awesome vampire western Near Dark, but without kickass character actors like Bill Paxton and Lance Henriksen onboard, it ain't the same.

in the absence of tension, laughs, thrills, scares or anything like complexity, there is nothing here for viewers to sink their fangs into. The only real note of menace...is a hint at the end that there may be a sequel.

Even the special effects aren't very special.

Admittedly, there's something about a bunch of hot-looking Goth-type vampires on motorcycles that has, well, a little bite to it.

Kudos to the ad campaign, but nuts to everyone else involved in this snuffly, histrionic werewolves-at-war-with-one-another yawner.

This werewolf flick is all bark and no bite.

If lots and lots of shooting and wrassling and growling turns your crank, then you might have a good time with Skinwalkers; otherwise, it's a total snore.

Indistiguishable from either the horror or action product that routinely comes out of the straight-to-video pipeline.

The film may have suffered some bad buzz earlier on, but it's far better than most of the other werewolf offerings.

In Skinwalkers, there are two kinds of skinwalkers. Some see their bloodlust as a curse, and others, more colorfully, "embrace the power of the beast."

To borrow that immortal self-critiquing line from director James Isacc's own Jason X, 'This sucks on so many levels.'

A throwback to workmanlike '70s and '80s-era low-budget action thrillers.

Not only is this a seriously goofy werewolf movie -- but they snipped out most of the juicy bits in order to earn a PG-13 rating. Gotta love it.

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.

Skinwalkers wears its B-movie badness on its sleeve like a badge of honor.

A werewolf movie so bad it merits a silver bullet.

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.
