A group of people who represent an oil company find a new place to drill in Louisiana. However, when they set off an explosion, it unleashes a wolf-like creature that kills all the workers…



A reasonable cast, elevated by Robert Picardo’s seething portrayal of a stop-at-nothing oil company villain (and he knows something about evil werewolves as he was Eddie Quist in the original The Howling!) struggle with the kind of clichéd depictions of small-town rednecks, misplaced loyalties and Native American supernatural legends we have all seen so many times before.

The Monsterwolf itself is one of the worst CGI abominations to grace even a Syfy movie but at least the editing and action is swift during the attack scenes and if you expect nothing more than a mindless time-filler (though it was part of the channel’s 2010 Halloween highlights!) then you could do worse. And it’s a very cheap beast on disc if you miss catching it on TV.

Other reviews:

“Wolf attacks are presented with flashy editing that allows for better use of practical monster prosthetics, though there are too many instances of spotty computer effects to dampen the effectiveness of certain moments.” Dread Central
