Ambrose (Nick Damici) is a blind war vet who goes to live in a retirement community of Crescent Bay with his seeing-eye German Shepherd. He doesn't like it and says "People don't come here to live, they come here to die". One of the first things he notices in his new digs are the claw marks he feels in the wall--and he removes a suspicious looking claw. Yes, something is wrong with the community, which he soon finds out when his neighbor is slaughtered and he's nearly killed by a werewolf. His dog tries to protect him and is mortally injured, so he has to put him down. The police attribute it to some wild animal in the nearby woods, which has been periodically killing people once a month. This gets Ambrose to thinking and he surmises it's a werewolf. So, for the next month, he prepares to kill it.
I really wanted to like this movie. While the werewolf effects are decent enough at the beginning it soon looks like a giant Muppet by the end of the film. The writing, particularly the dialogue, is terrible and stilted, which made me wonder why they just didn't get actor/writer Nick Damici to write the screenplay. STAKELAND, MULBERRY STREET and COLD IN JULY were great! But the worst aspect is the miscasting. They tried to make Damaci look like he's in his 60's--but he's around the same age as Ethan Embry, the actor who portrays his son. His old age makeup is terrible And they have him doing a bad Charles Bronson impression and the one-liners are laughable. Even the cameos by Tina Louise (GILLIGAN'S ISLAND) and Karen Lynn Gorney (SATURAY NIGHT FEVER) were distracting in making me think how old these actresses now were. Overall, I was extremely disappointed by this werewolf flick. This is the worst movie produced by Glass Pix.
