      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Skinwalkers is an atrociously-acted project whose unoriginal and ineptly-staged action sequences remind viewers of far better werewolf and action movies.

      Steve D A mix of a million better stories. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 10/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Ugh I can't watch this movie. Its just not interesting. The editing is too fast and the shots are awkward and its got a strange atmosphere that I just can't recommend. Some of the effects are good but its ruined by bad acting and boring story. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Holy cow. We're three episodes in, and it is sooooo SLOW. You finish people's sentences for them, because they are predictable and melodramatically delayed in delivery. Most of the actors are just reading a script. Adam Beach? Wow. You can give him crap and he still reads it with authenticity. But c'mon. Robert Redford co-produced this? What the hell, Bob. Geez. Well, at least I find that its slow pace leaves me with PLENTY of time to kill time criticizing the lazy videography, death-on-a-stick script, and walk-through-your-part acting. I have long yawns' worth of time to carefully write my criticisms in my head, revise them, let them sit a bit, reflect on them, and then post them on the Web. It's almost like they filmed early rehearsals and then let the actors take the rest of the week off. So far... very disappointing. And no skin walkers yet. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member The only thing that made this movie watchable was the fact that it was so bad. The acting was terrible, and the writing was probably worse. It felt almost like it was trying to be a spoof movie, but failing at even that. I just wanted to laugh at it, but you could tell they were being serious. It was impossible to believe any of it. The only redeeming feature of this movie, other than the end credits, was probably Rhona Mitra's nipples being almost on full display during the final fight sequence...I don't regret watching it though. This movie was so bad, that it went right past "It was so bad, it was good" and went all the way back to bad again. 10/10. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member More style than substance. Sounds good on paper, but poorly executed. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Terrible movie. Skinwalkers is a cheap, boring, unoriginal, poorly acted rip-off of Underworld. The storyline is stupid, horribly written, and so packed full of clichés you would think it's being sold at Costco. The special effects and action sequences are terrible, horribly executed, and poorly thought out. The performances are god-awful, not even the kid delivering a good one.

      Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle Kudos to the ad campaign, but nuts to everyone else involved in this snuffly, histrionic werewolves-at-war-with-one-another yawner. Rated: 0.5/5 Aug 25, 2007 Full Review Steven Hyden AV Club A throwback to workmanlike '70s and '80s-era low-budget action thrillers. Rated: B- Aug 14, 2007 Full Review Ty Burr Boston Globe Skinwalkers is never able to escape its fundamental preposterousness. You've seen worse, but, trust me, you've seen better. Rated: 1.5/4 Aug 13, 2007 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Hackneyed horror pic. Rated: C- Mar 28, 2017 Full Review Steve Newton Georgia Straight It's obvious at times that Skinwalkers tries to emulate Kathryn Bigelow's awesome vampire western Near Dark, but without kickass character actors like Bill Paxton and Lance Henriksen onboard, it ain't the same. Rated: 2/5 Jul 7, 2010 Full Review Anton Bitel Film4 in the absence of tension, laughs, thrills, scares or anything like complexity, there is nothing here for viewers to sink their fangs into. The only real note of menace...is a hint at the end that there may be a sequel. Sep 22, 2008 Full Review Read all reviews
