According to FlixPatrol, director Stig Svendsen’s werewolf film has become a top 10 hit in a whopping 85 countries since it became available last Friday, and it has clinched the number one spot in 22 of them, bolstering its credentials as an instant to underpin success. Making the most of a limited budget, the haunting horror borrows the tropes and trappings of lycanthropy but manages to stay above cliched waters.
