    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Delpy and Scott are able to put it over. She's French and deep and mysterious. He's a fresh-faced American, an open book. Liking them makes it possible to (kinda) like this otherwise routine horror movie. show more

    Andy Seiler USA Today

    The computer animation of the monsters here is a herky-jerky cartoon blur that is anything but scary. show more

    Liam Lacey The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Given Waller's experience and budget, one might expect he could upgrade the B-movie acting and stock situations. He doesn't. The pay-off comes not in the story or acting, but the camera play and movement. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    Delpy's injection of class into an otherwise classless production raises the specter of what this film could have been with a better script and a better cast surrounding her. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Any plot discipline (necessary so that we care about some characters and not the others) has been lost in an orgy of special effects and general mayhem. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    Forget about social significance, depth of character and complex thematic underpinnings, and repeat after me: "It's only a werewolf movie." show more

    Russell Smith Austin Chronicle

    Plenty of gore-slinging, wisecracking fun to be had, and yes, the repulsively convincing werewolf transformations and attacks still pack a breath-stopping wallop. show more

    Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly

    The cruddy, shot-in-a-warehouse settings are especially depressing, since the computer-generated special effects seem to be taking place in another movie entirely (a far livelier one). [9 Jan 1998, p. 47] show more

    Derek Elley Variety

    An enjoyably trashy blend of impressive special effects, low-key refs to Landis's movie, and sudden moments of horror breaking the jokey tone. show more

    Stephen Holden The New York Times

    A slapdash, poorly acted, paint-by-numbers teen horror comedy, the sequel is too frenetically edited to build any suspense, and its special effects are strictly bargain basement. show more
