Consensus: Skinwalkers is an atrociously-acted project whose unoriginal and ineptly-staged action sequences remind viewers of far better werewolf and action movies.

Steven Hyden
AV Club

A throwback to workmanlike '70s and '80s-era low-budget action thrillers.

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.

Dennis Schwartz
Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Hackneyed horror pic.

Skinwalkers is never able to escape its fundamental preposterousness. You've seen worse, but, trust me, you've seen better.

James Berardinelli

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.

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.

On the fright scale, this pack of werewolves ranks below a basket of puppies.

Chuck Wilson
L.A. Weekly

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.

Anton Bitel

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.

I love werewolf and vampire movies, my fav, but this is kind disappointing. The story is stretched, a boy must survive to his 12th or 13th birthday so he can… More

This movie had some nice shots of autumn foliage. Why would I start with this as part of my review? Because the foliage and the beautiful Rhona Mitra are… More

A low budget werewolf film with a good idea but poor execution. The werewolves look quite odd and the plot is far too simple and obvious. Gingersnaps or Dog… More

Pretty average. The story of the werewolves was a little different with a bit of prophesy thrown in but in the end it was a shoot em up movie that had a bit… More
