I found this movie to be interesting. It was shot a little differently, and some of the special effects, such as a building blowing up in the end, seemed a little uninteresting to me. The acting was good, and the special effects for the werewolves was good.

The story had a brooding undertone as a werewolf mother decides to attend her son's graduation and . . . instead of a car or a check to help with college, she is going to inform him that he is lychan.

I enjoyed how it all took place on graduation day. This gave it an even more somber and creepier effect. Most of the action takes place in the  high school, which if anyone can remember their high school days, definitely adds to the terror aspect.

Standout performances by Landon Liboiron, Lindsay Shaw and Ivana Milicevic.

In my nerdy interpretation, I saw more than one parallel to the horrors of high school days and the horrors of recognizing your true lychan self. Teen Wolf anyone? But this is its own movie and it works for me.
