THE PLOT THUS FAR

Desperate to escape both a world she never wanted to be part of and the man who turned her into a werewolf, Elena abandons her Pack and takes refuge in a new city, starting over with a hot new romance and a successful photography career. But when bodies turn up in the werewolf sanctuary, Elena is torn between the life she’s building and the wild and dangerously unpredictable one she thought she left behind. Based on the Women of the Otherworld novels by #1 New York Times best selling author Kelley Armstrong. Includes all 13 UNCUT episodes featuring footage not seen on American television.

WHAT WE THOUGHT

“Bitten” wants to be “True Blood” for werewolves. Well, no one is getting butt slammed in a pick-up truck in this show. So, that might be appealing to those horror fantasy types dwelling in the Bible Belt. So much of the series is based on whether Elena is going to pick one person or another. But, what about her loyalty to the wolf pack? Yeah, it does sound pretty cliche.

Laura Vandervoort is quite an amazing lead when you consider that she’s playing the only female werewolf in the world. If this was the Howling, Robert Picardo would’ve already been all over her ass. Most of the action is cliche, but Vandervoort sells the tension with amazing conviction. Still, there’s so much of this show that feels like it could’ve been B-Reel footage from Haven. That might not be a bad thing for SyFy fans, but it’s trying on the casual viewer.

The Blu-Ray comes with a featurette, deleted scenes, commentary and split screen stunt choreography as the special features. The A/V Quality is quite impressive for a low budget horror show. The DTS-HD 5.1 master audio track doesn’t get a ton to develop. Still, the 1080p transfer is sharp. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase.

RELEASE DATE: 08/12/2014
