The premise has its roots in a humorous mid-1980s Michael J. Fox movie, but the approach is quite serious in this series take on the young werewolf theme, shown last year on MTV.
Tyler Posey plays the young man who's bitten, then stunned by the unexpected changes that overtake him, often at inconvenient moments. Crystal Reed, Tyler Hoechlin ("7th Heaven") and former "Wipeout" co-host Jill Wagner also are in the cast. DVD extras: three "making-of" documentaries; deleted, alternate and extended scenes; outtakes; "Shirtless Montage." *** (Not rated: AS, P, V)Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
