Well it would be great to be able to say that the movie poster was a total lie. But it isn’t. In fact, I’m going to have to say with some great reluctance that this movie poster is 100% true.

Fortunately I watched this movie ironically with our good friends (rash generalisation, they don’t know me at all) at MST3K.

So. A Native American, while being racially abused and attacked at some kind of archaeological dig site, falls and cuts his arm open on the fangs of a mutated looking skeleton that they have just stumbled upon. He’s taken to the hospital, stitched up, returned to the dig site and is so sick that an ambulance is called and he’s returned to the hospital. Where he turns into a werewolf and heads home, whereupon he is shot with silver bullets by two well-prepared members of the team and presumably dies? I have no idea because although this sounds like the beginning, middle and end of a movie plot… NO!

It. Keeps. Going. It also has ALL the soundtracks, I’m serious, nearly every scene (many of which are in the deepest blue of the night) seems to have its own soundtrack.

Because the main plot seems to be about a man called Paul, a man called Yuri, and a woman whose name I can’t remember and got muddled up with another woman whose name I also can’t remember. It’s a love triangle except the woman already told Yuri no. So Yuri hits Paul with… yeah, you got it… that mutated skull thing.

And so Paul catches it too.

Honestly, this movie is just a health and safety nightmare. They should have at least washed their hands.
