Summary Sarah Tyler returns to her troubled family home in the isolated
countryside, for a much put-off visit. As a storm rages outside, Sarah,
her family and friends shore up for the night, cut off from the outside
world. But something comes out of the driving rain and darkness.
Something that holds a dark secret so devastating that, in one night, it
could wipe out the entire family.

My opinion Oh no, not again a werewolf ... The only positive thing about this movie is that the werewolf appears really soon in the beginning. Daughter dear (Isabella Calthorpe) returns from the U.S. She meets (with a British coolness) her father. Joins a drinking party with her annoying stepbrothers. And after going to the mansion, the spectacle can start and of we go for a hellish slasher story.
Now about the negative points. Well there aretoo many tomention.There's absolutelyno introductionorany historyabout the family. The acting performances of anumber ofbrothers and thebitchygirlfriend are completely irritating.There's noexplanationwhere the creaturesuddenlycomes from. Very poorand unconvincingperformances. Their actions are completely ridiculousgiven the situation they are in. Apparently these Britishyoungsters enjoy themselves a lot and think it'stremendouslyexciting as their family is massacred. It's so excitingthat despitethe threat of being tearedinto piecesby the phenomenon thatwanders aroundthe house, the son has the irresistibleurge totry to get his bustygirlfriend excited. Terriblybadspecial effects andsickeningstroboscopic effects.
This movie is a mockery of the werewolf genre if you compare it with"An AmericanWerewolfin London" and its magnificent transformationscene. The grimage at the end is distressingandthe ending is terriblybad. Someone described it masterfully like this : "No tension, no pace, no catch phrases, no humour, no wit and unfortunately no horror". I rest my case !
Conclusion : a boring and annoyingfilm, with the solepurpose to show a chain ofslasher-movie effects, which werealsoterriblyvisualized.
