Defense attorney Kate (A.J. Cook) is called to defend the creepy, yet gentle, Talan (Brian Scott O’Connor) after he is charged with the murders of a vacationing family. She soon learns that he is a werewolf and that he may have been all too capable of the slayings. Things take a turn for the worse when Talan escapes from his imprisonment and runs loose through the city of Paris…

” … Wer is just a great popcorn movie with terrific performances, outstanding direction & one hell of a big dude playing a werewolf. It’s hardly perfect (those script issues kill a bit of its momentum) but it’s the best damned werewolf flick I’ve seen since Ginger Snaps (2000). It’s also one of the best films I’ve seen so far this year and a must to watch. Congratulations cast & crew of Wer for bringing scary werewolves back to the cinema!” HorrorNews.net

“I will admit that my expectations were low going into Wer. I also had not seen any trailers, or stills and knew very little of the plot. But the moment Wer snaps out of found footage familiarity, and thank God it’s early, my eyes were glued to the screen. I had fun watching it, even when it got into action movie territory.” Quin, Brutal as Hell

Wer 2013

Wer embraces a human, daringly underdeveloped creature who plays off of our own unbridled aggression, not a sinisterly bloodthirsty mean streak, making for an infinitely more harrowing – and understandable – monster. Of course, there’s also a more mundane criminal story one has to take part in before Bell and Peterman flex their beastly muscles, but Wer is good enough to curiously make you wonder if The Devil Inside is worth a redemptive second chance.” Mat Donato, We Got This Covered

Wer 2013

Wer wants so badly to be weighed as a “realistic” take on the werewolf mythos that it ends up being unrealistic with how common conceptions are conspicuously avoided on both sides of the camera. This tactic exposes Wer as having the confusedly impossible goal of fashioning something fresh from parts that are not.  Making its way onscreen instead is a string of increasingly dimwitted behavior and misguided plot points…” Culture Crypt

“Despite the slow start, where really nothing interesting happens, and the absurd ending, it still resulted in an eerie, terrifying and intense monster movie which is still worth to give it a try. Even the found-footage (of which I’m not really such a big fan) didn’t really bother me. It’s self-evident this isn’t really a family film. There are some explicit images of mutilated bodies and a blood-stained looming figure, that turns this into an ominous film.” Opinion As a Movie-Freak
