Reviews:

“Conway’s script is full of suspense and intrigue and serves up some surprises in the “Who’s the next victim?” department. He does a stirring job with both the western drama and horror elements and is assisted nicely by a solid cast and some impressive practical effects and makeup work. A couple of CGI effects are rather obvious but don’t distract much from the proceedings.” Horror Fuel

” …Skinwalker doesn’t do anything with Native American traditions except use them to dress up a fairly generic demon […] Skinwalker isn’t that bad. It did hold my interest and there are a few good scares. It’s all familiar material, but it’s competently enough told that it isn’t boring.” Voices from the Balcony

Release date:

Uncork’d Entertainment will unleash Skinwalker on DVD and Digital on July 13, 2021.
