Movie Info

Popular high school student Cayden Richards wakes from a horrific nightmare, only to realize that he's living it... He is changing into something vicious, unpredictable and wild. Forced to hit the road after the brutal murder of his parents, Cayden tries to hunt down the truth of what he is. In the remote, mountain town of Lupine Ridge, he discovers others like him - Including the beautiful Angelina, a young woman caught between two ancient clans of "wolves". And when he finally discovers the shocking truth behind his ancestry, Cayden realizes there is only one way to save the woman he loves... a grisly fight to the death against forces more savage than he could have ever imagined.

Critic Reviews for Wolves

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (8)

While it's a painless watch, "Wolves" looks comparatively bland as an adolescent male answer to Canada's last notable bigscreen werewolf effort, the femme-focused "Ginger Snaps" franchise.

Swoopy-haired star Lucas Till makes for a credible young western-style hero, but even he's upended by the often silly, inconsistent story.

The kind of pleasantly eccentric werewolf coming-of-age story that should be seen as the third-billed title in a horror movie marathon. When viewed on its own, one can't help but wonder who "Wolves"' was made for.

Wolves limps along with a clunker of a script and unremarkable effects.

As unoriginal as its title, David Hayter's "Wolves" is yet another hoary, hairy transformation narrative featuring lycanthropy as a metaphor for coming of age.

Top Critic

The first 30 minutes of this cheap-looking monster drama are admittedly rough going. But once the "Twilight"-meets-"Sons of Anarchy" silliness kicks in, there's a lovable lunacy at work.

Audience Reviews for Wolves

Awesome movie, but you need a strong stomach for it. I'm not a big fan of the random commentary moments though

What's more Halloween than getting eaten by a werewolf? An orphaned young man wants to know more about his parents and starts by investigating the town his mom was from. He finds a town full of lycans that teach him about his people. He discovers that he has unique lycan powers and that may be the reason he was orphaned. What was his mom trying to hide him from? "You think I'm afraid of dying?" "It's not the dying. It's what comes first." David Hayter, director of the upcoming television mini-series World War III, delivers Wolves in his directorial debut. The storyline for this picture is lacking and isn't worth following. The action was inconsistent and the gore was just okay. The acting was very average and the cast includes Lucas Till, Jason Momoa, Adam Butcher, Merritt Peterson, and Janet-Laine Green. "I need a hospital or vet or something." I randomly came across this on Showtime Anytime and decided to give it a shot. This was very average and the special effects were disappointing. There wasn't much to see here and I'd recommend skipping it. "Is it a gift or a curse?" Grade: D

This is probably one of the strangest werewolf films I've ever seen however despite that and the fact that it's a bit low budget it's still not a bad way to spend an hour and a half.
