His 13th birthday fast drawing near, an unsuspecting young boy on the verge of a remarkable transformation remains completely unaware that an ancient prophecy is set to be fulfilled with the rising of the red moon. To most folks, 12-year-old Timmy (Matthew Knight) would seem an average adolescent with a bright future on the horizon. In the tiny town of Huguenot, however, nothing is as it seems. As Timmy's health rapidly begins to take a turn for the worse, his concerned mother, Rachel (Rhona Mitra), does her best to care for the ailing young boy.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A throwback to workmanlike '70s and '80s-era low-budget action thrillers."
‑ Steven Hyden, AV Club
"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."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"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."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"Even the special effects aren't very special."
‑ Liz Braun, Jam! Movies
"This werewolf flick is all bark and no bite."
‑ Stax, IGN Movies
"Skinwalkers is never able to escape its fundamental preposterousness. You've seen worse, but, trust me, you've seen better."
‑ Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"The problem with most werewolf movies isn't that they're derivative, but that they're badly written, badly acted, or just plain silly. Skinwalkers hits the trifecta: all three apply."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"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 a hint at the end that there may be a sequel."
‑ Anton Bitel, Film4
"Admittedly, there's something about a bunch of hot-looking Goth-type vampires on motorcycles that has, well, a little bite to it."
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"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."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"On the fright scale, this pack of werewolves ranks below a basket of puppies."
‑ Lisa Rose, Newark Star-Ledger
"The only thing more boring than a vampire with moral issues about biting people in the neck is a werewolf who'd rather become fully human than howl at the moon once a month."
‑ Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly
"stinks like a mangy animal's fetid coat"
‑ Bill Gibron,
"Kudos to the ad campaign, but nuts to everyone else involved in this snuffly, histrionic werewolves-at-war-with-one-another yawner."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"Indistiguishable from either the horror or action product that routinely comes out of the straight-to-video pipeline."
‑ Michael Dequina,
