Ms Bruckner falls for an American boy. Unfortunately, the werewolves don't approve. Things go from bad to worse ...
Ginger [ Katherine Isabelle ] is gone, but she can appear to her sister in visions.
Another werewolf is on the prowl. He can smell her, and he wants to mate.
Murphy's the same wise-cracking asshole he plays in all his 1980s films. But he's very toned down here - less wearing and violence. A more family-friendly version.
Swank's friend, a priest, sends her to the Deep South where a river has turned into blood. This also happened in an episode of American Gothic , which is exactly what this town is reminiscent of. Local man David Morrissey [Basic Instinct 2] helps her.
The film is made up of lots of bits from far better films. It's predictable and cliched. For example, her sidekick is the token non-white character - what are the chances that he makes it to the end of the film?
Eli Roth , now regarded as protege of Quentin Tarantino , is now famous for the Hostel series. This is his low-budget debut, as much like Blair Witch Project as anything - more obscure, but with a greater legacy!
