When high-school quarterback Cayden (Lucas Till) suspects he has brutally murdered his parents, he goes on the run and arrives in the small town of Lupine Ridge, where he uncovers his hairy heritage. The town is home to feuding clans of werewolves, and when Cayden falls for local bar owner Angel (Merritt Patterson), he angers mountain clan alpha and pureblood lycan Connor (Jason Momoa), who has laid claim on the were-babe to sire him a son…
With the 1980s horror classic The Lost Boys as his template, X-Men screenwriter turned first-time director David Hayter has whipped up a fantasy adventure that weaves a coming-of-age story featuring Teen Wolf-styled testosterone-fuelled fight scenes (like those in the Tyler Posey TV reboot) with a Twilight-styled teen romance. Set in a universe not unlike TV’s Grimm, where supernatural beings live amongst human kind, Hayter’s creature feature could actually serve as a pilot for a new fantasy drama (especially given what happens in the final scene).
