What it is about werewolf movies? For every The Howling, An American Werewolf In London or Dog Soldiers, you get twelve Skin Walkers and lots of crummy Howling sequels.
I don’t know know in which column David Hayter’s Wolves falls, but if the trailer is any indicator, lycantrophy is being used as a thinly-veiled allegory for a young man’s transition into adulthood.
And there’s nothing wrong with that, though it’s not exactly an uncommon theme as far as horror movies go. That being said, plot and storyline are important, but a great looking werewolf transformation goes a long way toward, if not curing all ills at least making you forget about them for a little while.
