Synopsis

On the night of a full moon, Max Caine, 35, invites his estranged brother, Fred, 31, to their remote family home to reveal shocking news: he was attacked by a werewolf on a recent business trip. As the evening unfolds, it becomes clear that Max has lured Fred to the house in order to trick him into shooting him with silver bullets. Max is convinced he’ll transform into a beast at midnight and will kill his beloved wife and daughter, for it is said that werewolves are tragic figures condemned to destroy the things they love the most in the world. But as the midnight hour approaches, the brothers’ reunion takes a disturbing turn and ends in a way neither could have imagined.
