Virginia (Felicia Day) takes her fiancé Nathan (Kavan Smith) to meet her family - granny (Rosemary Dunsmore), brothers Jake (David Reale) and Marcus (Greg Bryk) - who live in a house deep in the woods. Nathan finds the whole bunch - including Virginia when she's with them - a bit odd, especially when they find a dead body that spontaneously incinerates and treat it like nothing special. It's not before Nathan meets Gabriel (Stephen McHattie) though, a man who turns into a wolf before his very eyes and attacks him, that he starts to understand the truth: Virginia and her family are werewolf hunters, and she is the last female descendant of Little Red Riding Hood.

Weirdly enough, the werewolf attack has left Nathan unharmed, and from here on he becomes part of the family's werewolf-hunting operations - which seem to be overdue because it seems, Gabriel, an especially evil werewolf, has taken over the wolfpack, and he is presently teaching the werewolves how to change at will so they are not dependant on the full moon anymore.

Eventually, it turns out that Nathan has been bitten by Gabriel and turned after all, and the only reason he is not shot on the spot is because Virginia is deeply in love with him. Instead he is locked in and drugged to sleep through the full moon while Viriginia and brothers go on a werewolf hunt - with disastrous results, Jake and Marcus are killed and she is captured by Gabriel, who plans to torture her, the last descendant of Red, to death himself.

The next day, and back in human form, Nathan manages to save her though, then they turn her family home into a fortress to fight the werewolves who are sure to try to take the mansion the next night. And while Virginia fights the werewolves trying to invade, Nathan is sent back behind bars and is guarded by granny. Somehow, Virginia manages to fight off and kill all the werewolves, even Gabriel, but by that time, Nathan has left his cage and killed granny - which is bad, because once a werewolf has killed a human, it's impossible to turn him back. In the end, Nathan the werewolf even attacks Virginia, and only the rising sun saves her. However, he has already bitten her ...

So the last two survivors of the ordeal turn out to be werewolves. Nathan wants the two of them to start anew and find a cure, but Virginia knows the only cure for her condition is to kill the werewolf who has bitten her, thus she stabs him to death and breaks her own heart at the same time ...

 

This film might not add much to the werewolf-myth as such, is certainly not the most original, inventive or trailblazing film ever, not by a longshot, and it features some badly done CGI-wolfes - but I have to admit I rather liked it: It's very well-paced, profits from stringent storytelling, is devoid of unnecessary subplots, features a small but decent ensemble cast, and comes across as an enjoyably old-fashioned action-horror flick with a cool surprise ending.

As I said, not the best film, not even the best werewolf flick you have ever seen, but entertaining nevertheless.
