I bought this DVD expecting a bit of cheese, but really curious about the plot. As it focuses on a pack of wolves I thought it would be a bit different than the usual horror-slant, and a pack would make for some interesting character relationships and dynamics.

And I got exactly what I wanted!

There is cheese - in that the main plot is a detective (Kanin) tracking down his fiancee (Ruby) who went missing, and the trail leads to her hometown of Wolf Lake. Cue intense stares into the distance, hallucinatory episodes, and him hearing her voice on the wind (I kid you not). There are also some rather cute slow mo bits, which seem to be an attempt to add tension.

That said, I was pleasantly surprised with how understated the werewolf effects were. Mainly glowing eyes and actual animal footage, instead of half-man half-beast prosthetics. It was nice, because often such shows put too much effort into demonstrating how different the supernatural are.

I really loved how this show focuses on the pack, and again it was really subtle. They have a whole established hierarchy, pack rules and customs...and they let the bulk of it go unexplained.

The werewolves are a bit of an open secret around town - the humans know the people on the hill are special, and quite a few know about the wolves due to them marrying into the pack. Because of that it's quite easy to pick up on bits and pieces from different characters' perspectives; even as the town is actively keeping the wolves secret from Kanin, their world is wide open to the viewer.

There's plenty of different character relationships to enjoy, and although the start of the show focused on Kanin and Ruby, I wouldn't say they're the main story.

What a shame this series didn't get chance to hit it's stride before it got cancelled. It was a bit of a slow starter but was gradually building up a head of steam. Good performances all round from the cast, and a few familiar faces including "whatshisname" from the "Vampire Diaries".

I knew that this animal will not complete as with many a series. But if you wait for something to finish it you will not watch much.

I watched the unaired pilot with the voice over by Series Creator & Executive Producer Rupert Wainwright and director John Leelley.
1. Meat the Parents
2. The changing
3. Soup to Nuts
4. Tastes Like Chicken
5. Excitable Boy
6. Four Feet Under
7. Leader of the Pack
8. Legend of Lost Lenore
9. If These Wolves Could Talk

The series starts out like the unaired Pilot did not exist.

Seattle Policeman John Kanin (Lou Diamond Phillips) just popped the question to his girl. She disappears maybe she never existed. He gets a call from Wolf Lake saying someone saw her. So he goes there to find that everyone is evasive. Is there some community secret or is he just paranoid. You be the judge.

See Lou Diamond Phillips again in:

The Dark Wind
