Teen Wolf (2011)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger

Teen Wolf (2011) The only thing this really has in common with the Michael J. Fox movie from the 80's that a high schooler by the name of Scott McCall (Tyler Posey) is bitten by a werewolf.

The tone is serious, not at all tongue-in-cheek. He and a friend Stiles, the son of the town's sheriff, go looking for the other half of a dead body in the nearby woods. The authorities found the first half--and think an animal may have done it. Why this doesn't concern the two boys I haven't a clue. They get separated and then McCall is attacked by a werewolf. He patches himself up and then discovers he's stronger and has quick reflexes. In fact, he doesn't even need to use his asthma inhaler anymore. McCall isn't too quick to figure what's going on but his friend is, and insists that he's becoming a werewolf.

There's also the return of loner Derek Hale, who's family mysteriously died when their house caught on fire a few years before--and it's obvious he's a werewolf. But is he the one responsible for turning McCall into a lycanthrope? He warns him not to show his powers, that they have to keep their abilities a secret because there are people out to kill their kind. He warns McCall not to get excited because that may instigate the change,which he finds out when he plays Lacrosse. He grows long teeth and claws.

Everything is complicate by the new girl in the school, Allison Argent (Crystal Reed of SKYLINE). There's a good chemistry between the two characters. He invites her out on a date, to a party, but has to leave her there when he begins to transform into were-boy. However, she's not too upset and gives him a second chance. Yet he feels threatened by Derek Hale, who had given her a ride home. Is this guy playing games with him? Is he thinking about killing her as well (if he is even the killer)?

One night McCall transforms and is shot in the arm with an arrow by werewolf hunters. He sees the face of the leader--and finds out at the end of the second episode that this guy is Allison's father. He is a werewolf hunter!

The first two episodes are well-done and clearly establish all the characters. The full-werewolf is only glimpsed for seconds, as a CGI effect, and the times McCall changes it's only part way, like Universal's THE WOLF MAN, which I liked. However, it is just another teen-angst-horror show, like THE VAMPIRE DIARIES and if you're over eighteen there's probably no reason to watch this...
