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.
