Synopsis from official website: Inspired by the classic Universal film that launched a legacy of horror, The Wolfman brings the myth of a cursed man back to its iconic origins. Benicio Del Toro plays Lawrence Talbot, a haunted nobleman lured back to his family estate after his brother vanishes. Reunited with his estranged father, Anthony Hopkins, Talbot sets out to find his brother…and discovers a horrifying destiny for himself. Lawrence Talbot’s childhood ended the night his mother died. After he left the sleepy Victorian hamlet of Blackmoor, he spent decades recovering and trying to forget. But when his brother’s fiancée, Gwen Conliffe (Emily Blunt), tracks him down to help him find her missing love, Talbot returns home to join the search. He learns that something with brute strength and insatiable blood lust has been killing the villagers, and that a suspicious Scotland Yard inspector named Aberline (Hugo Weaving) has come to investigate. As he pieces together the gory puzzle, he hears of an ancient curse that turns the afflicted into werewolves when the moon is full. Now, if he has any chance at ending the slaughter and protecting the woman he has grown to love, Talbot must kill the vicious creature in the woods surrounding Blackmoor. But as he hunts for the nightmarish beast, a simple man with a torchered past will uncover a primal side to himself…one he never imagined existed.

What a good movie! Great special effects! This was a really awesome movie…the storyline was interesting and there were definitely parts that made you jump…but not really scary…it had a little bit of romance too…which you need for every movie…

There was only one thin that was not so good about it….the gore…I mean there was blood and guts everywhere…so much of it…ewgh…nasty…it just makes me sooo squemish…ewww…but other than all the blood it was a very well done movie…also, at the end i was kinda hoping for a happy ending…i shoulda known better though cause it’s a “horror” movie…and i guess they can’t have happyendings…but you hope for one…

I definitely say it is a Must See.
