Siblings Ellie (Christina Ricci) and Jimmy (Jesse Eisenberg) have yet to fully come to terms with the loss of their parents. Ellie works at "The Late Late Show With Craig Kilborn" and dates ladies' man Jake (Joshua Jackson), while Jimmy is a less-than-popular high school student with a crush on the prettiest girl in school (Kristina Anapau).

But one night, after Ellie and Jimmy are involved in a car accident, they are bitten by what appears to be a bona fide werewolf. Soon, both brother and sister begin exhibiting behaviour that can only mean one thing - that they, too, have been cursed. Now they must hunt down and kill their attacker if they hope to change their fate.

What the critics are saying:

" almost fatally compromised product, a wolf movie for the Buffy generation that has only a smidgeon of that show's audacity and sophistication."
- Paul Arendt, BBC Movies

"It's not bad enough to make you curse, but you are likely to laugh when you should scream, and to roll your eyes when you are meant to laugh."
- A.O. Scott, New York Times

"How can you not feel affectionate toward a movie that includes a line like, 'I guess there's no such thing as safe sex with a werewolf'?"
- Gene Seymour, Newsday

Wes Craven's latest werewolf flick is just plain silly - and not in a good way.
