Cayden Richards (Lucas Till) is a popular high school quarterback with wealthy parents, a hot girlfriend and not a single worry in the world. Well, he has been having violent and horrific nightmares every night, and he almost kills an opposing player on the field in a fit of rage, but aside from that he really doesn’t have a single worry. But that all changes when he realizes he’s a werewolf. He attacks his hot girlfriend, murders his own parents and goes on the run across country, but his escape very quickly brings him in contact with a man with the same hairy affliction and a suggestion of where Cayden should go for answers. That destination is the remote mountain town of Lupine Ridge, obviously, but Cayden is surprised to discover it offers answers to questions he didn’t even know he had. Writer/director David Hayter‘s Wolves is a YA film in, well, wolf’s clothing. Just about every aspect, from story arc to character types, feel shaped like any number of YA films in recent years, but the film’s ‘R’ rating appears to remove it from the grasp of teen viewers. But the promise of that rating and the recent red-band trailer — basically gory werewolf carnage and shaggy coupling — never actually comes to fruition resulting instead in a slight, mildly goofy and toothless werewolf movie suitable for just about anyone interested in hormonal journeys.
