Full, crescent, quarter - each is a Bad Moon for Ted Harrison. By day, he's a photojournalist visiting family in the Pacific Northwest. By night, he transfigures into a horrific half-human - a werewolf.
In the highland forest, Captain Ryan (Liam Cunningham) and his Special Forces Unit, which includes Sergeant Walker, are spying on the squad of British Soldiers who have been set up as bait ... See full summary »
A British Squad is sent on a training mission in the Highlands of Scotland against Special Operations squad. Ignoring the childish "campfire" stories heard about the area, they continue with their mission and come across the bloody remains of the Special Ops Squad, and a fierce howling is pitching the night sky... With two mortally wounded men, they make an escape, running into a zoologist by the name of Megan - who knows exactly what hunts them. What began as what they thought was a training mission turns into a battle for their lives against the most unlikely enemies they would have expected - werewolves.Written by
How they went about the werewolf transformation there were two choices, the transformation effects from An American Werewolf in London (1981) which was impossible as they didn't have the time or resources to do it and the other lesser option was CGI which at that point CG effects were not all great, some were great as it was post Jurassic Park (1993), Neil Marshall explained he didn't want to do some "cheesy morph" so he went back to some old school techniques, having them hide behind the furniture and pop up as the werewolf.

The group of soldiers are referred to a 'squad'. 'Squad' is not the name given to a small infantry unit in the British Army, it is called a section. Also sections have 8 men minimum, not 6, and generally are commanded by a corporal. See more »
[after discussing how low they are on ammo]
Tell me. Honestly, what are our chances?
Morale seems good, considering. But that will only last as long as the ammunition holds out. Although high spirits are just no substitute for eight hundred rounds a minute, but I don't think that's what you wanted to hear.

This one is the best werewolf film I've ever seen. I must admit that it hasn't got the greatest special effects or the biggest names in the acting business attached to it, but the film succeeds in doing what needs to be done: it keeps you on the edge of your seat for the whole ride and it doesn't let you go for one minute. Other than that, the actors are pretty good and there are also some good comedic moments. If you want a nice night of entertainment, suspense and scares give this one a try, because despite not being the most original or inventive film out there, it does not only promise to deliver IT DOES SO!!! I just know that I especially (and two others) highly enjoyed this low budget horror flick.
