Scottish werewolves

IGN's The Horror Geek Speaks has a review of the new horror film, Dog Soldiers:

The story about a group of British army men forced to fight a small throng of werewolves in the desolate Scottish countryside cribs from countless other films—both in the genre and beyond. Recounting all the things the film borrows would take up the bulk of the review—but rest assured, if you've seen Jaws, Predator, Southern Comfort, Night of the Living Dead, or about a half dozen other famous films, you'll spot the 'homages' littered throughout this effort. What really sets Dog Soldiers apart is the way it takes the obvious homages, weaves them into the plotline, and still makes the viewer feel as though a great deal of thought went into the script. Despite the fact that there's nothing overly original to be found in the film [...], [director Neil] Marshall makes it all seem fresh and interesting anyway—no small feat when one thinks about it logically.

Dog Soldiers isn't new; it was released in 2002.

It's a decent movie, though.

That's what I get for not going to IMDB first, I guess... My bad.
