August (Steven Morana) is a socially awkward video game developer who hates crowds - and who has been made the face of a new gaming app called Werewolf Awaken ... mainly because his charismatic boss Brian (Art Hindle) has been a bit scandal prone of late, and the brand thus needs a new face. And thus, August is also the center piece of the app's launch party. Now the party initially goes as good or bad as expected, as there's a priest (Colm Feore) warning about the dangers of the app, a journalist (Bobbie Phillips) who turns out to be Brian's ex asking uncomfortable questions, the ex (Jon Cor) of Brian's current girlfriend (Supinder Wraich) crashing the party, August's best friend (Marco Timpano) scaring everyone in a werewolf costume, and Brian's publicist (Ari Millen) doing a poor job keeping everything in check. Of course, there's also Cheyenne (Holly Deveaux), August's online friend he meets in person for the first time, and the fact that she's gorgeous leaves him tongue-tied, even more so that she turns out to be a cam girl. So the party could go much better for August - and that's before guests turning up dead. Soon it turns out the game has taken a dynamic of its own and there's an actual werewolf on the premises killing people, and to get rid of it, everybody attending has to find out who it is - but that's easier said than done as the werewolf has made it its habit to kill the main suspects ...

 

Basically, this is an old-fashioned whodunnit of the old dark house variety blended with werewolf motives, and given a new coat of paint with its gaming app premise - and it works, not only because the elements work well together but also because this is a well-written film that finds a fine balance between humour and horror and brings some colourful characters to the table as well as a mystery plot that clearly has some thought put into it. And a stylish directorial effort and some solid performances sure help to make this one a very entertaining ride.
