Critics Consensus

Jacqueline Castel's feature debut is an arresting queer and lycanthropic coming of age story that longs for more, but delivers just enough panache to satisfy.

Katie Rife IGN Movies The film is more about style than plot, but the setting and direction are novel enough, and the chemistry between the actors is palpable enough, to make it an achingly nostalgic experience, especially for LGBTQ+ viewers. Rated: 8/10 Sep 9, 2023 Full Review Simon Abrams RogerEbert.com A queer-themed werewolf pic that’s both achingly sincere and emotionally stillborn. Rated: 1.5/4 Sep 8, 2023 Full Review Richard Whittaker Austin Chronicle In an understated performance, Menuez reminds the audience that it's not always cool and easy to be the outsider. Rated: 3/5 Sep 7, 2023 Full Review Jericho Tadeo MovieWeb charters a somewhat atypical route, favoring mood and the exploration of our lead characters' internal lives over traditional gore and body horror.

Touch M Simplesmente tudo que essa atriz faz é demais Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/18/24 Full Review Paloma B My Animal is queer romantic horror movie that both metaphorically and literally tells the struggles of Queer young people living in conservative small towns through the figure of the werewolf. I found the movie to be quite enjoyable especially as a Lesbian, but it did not show as much shapeshifting as I would like. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 09/29/23 Full Review Read all reviews
