|Okay TV lycanthrope horror.
The Louisiana town of Marsh Island is suddenly besieged by a disturbing rash of mysterious deaths, the victims found brutally gouged by some strange wild creature.
Sheriff Whitaker (Janssen) can't seem to get a lead in the headscratching case.
Could the culprit be a mad dog of some sort?...Could the eccentric Rodanthe family somehow be tied to the murders?
And lately a superstitious old local has taken to placing smelly sulphur around his house...murmuring 'werewolf' in French.
Could it be?
Lowkey and fairly typical, this sleepy wolf pic would have benefitted from a bit more action.
Still, leads Janssen and Rush maintain a cool old school charm that's pleasing to watch, and the hot bayou atmosphere proves effective.
The delightful denouement is oh-so-classic-Universal replete with fangs, hair and burning barns.
