An adventurous photojournalist, Ted (Michael Pare), has always responded to the call of the wild, traveling to the ends of the Earth to capture his images. On one expedition in Nepal, he encounters a horrific, half-human beast that murders his girlfriend and bites him, leaving him scarred forever.

When Ted returns to the tranquil Pacific Northwest, his sister Janet (Mariel Hemingway) notices a disturbing change in her brother: he has a furtive way of avoiding her questions and a strange glint in his eye. By night, Ted secretly transfigures into a werewolf. The secret, however, may be out as the protective family dog, Thor, has his suspicions.

Janet: “Ted, you know you’re always welcome here. Here’s what you’re going to do. You’re going to park your airstream in my backyard, and you’re going to live out of my fridge.”
