If Twi­light ditched the emo vam­pires and fo­cused on its wolf pack, it still wouldn’t be half as much fun as X- writer David Hayter’s di­rec­to­rial de­but.

Cay­den ( Lu­cas Till) is an av­er­age high school foot­baller un­til pu­berty hits and he wolfs out. Af­ter accidentally killing his adop­tive par­ents, he runs away to find his real fam­ily and ends up caught be­tween two war­ring were­wolf clans. To sur­vive, he’ll have to fig­ure out how to be a wolf – and how to be a man.

It’s pretty melo­dra­matic, but it’s got a great sense of hu­mour and a sur­pris­ingly strong cast. Till is a sym­pa­thetic lead, while Ja­son Mo­moa gives real men­ace to his despotic wolf­man. As ly­can­thropic com­ing- of- age movies go, it’s not Gin­ger Snaps, but it’ll do.
