Details Release Date: Jan 26, 2007; Rated: PG-13; Length: 98 Minutes; Genre: Horror; With: Agnes Bruckner and Hugh Dancy; Distributor: MGM

The war between werewolves and humans — not to mention the one between Prague location scouts and Bucharest location scouts — has claimed many victims, among them the potency of the metaphor. Werewolves are tame with overuse, and movies like Blood and Chocolate — where moments of inspiration vie in vain with Goth cliché — play like underlit Charmed reruns. Agnes Bruckner is the toothsome Juliet to Hugh Dancy's human Romeo, but only Brothers of the Head's Bryan Dick, as a prodigal wolf boy, seems truly lupine.
