Jared Martin moves next door to the Hansetts, along with his hot motorcycle and eerie, ill-tempered dog. Although everyone else in the neighborhood takes an instant liking to him, Loren Hansett can't get over the bad vibes her new neighbor gives her. She starts to spy on his nocturnal activities and comes to believe that a recent killing might the work of a werewolf who happens to be her new neighbor. Her internet surfing provides a lot of collaborative detail but everyone but her friend Steven dismiss her story as teen-aged fantasy. Fearing for her life, she convinces Steven to take her to a gun shop to buy silver bullets in a gun shop, where their neighbor's supernatural dog attacks. When she dispatches the beast, her actions get the attention of Redd Tucker, a washed-up TV hunting show host to believe her as well. When Steven is attacked by the werewolf and Loren's brother goes missing, she and Redd team up to kill the lycanthrope before he can finish them both off.Written by

I'm begging you... please. Don't do this.
This is what you want. It's in your heart. It's in your blood. It's in your soul. It's time to do away with childish games. It's time to step over the threshold.
[unzips Loren's jacket]
Take it off.
Please... is this going to hurt?

At first... But it won't scar that beautiful body.
Please. Please just kill me. Just kill me. I don't want to turn into a monster like ...

First note that I have different scales for Sci-Fi Channel Originals and regular movies - an 8 for this movie does not mean the same as an 8 for what you would go to the theaters to see. But amongst sci-fi channel movies, this was a classic!
The characters were more or less believable, acting was okay, Kevin Sorbo was DELIGHTFUL as always, save for a few spots the special effects were pretty decent, some funny parts, some scary-ish parts (in a kid sort of way), all making for one very fun to watch movie.
Only complaints were, 1, it looks like it was shot in 1980 or so, you know, with the kind of off lighting and low quality image; 2, the middle 30 minutes or so really seem to drag on; and 3, some of the werewolf shots are really bad, in one I actually got confused and thought the werewolf was a trick or treater wearing a really bad costume, because (I kid you not) you could actually see that he was wearing a monster glove, because you could see where it stopped and his real arm began.
Overall, if you think you can overlook its flaws, and if you like some of the other sci-fi channel movies, you'll probably like this one. If not, stay away.
