“Skinwalkers,” (as you can see from perusing the posters on this page), has had a life of its own. Originally, “Skinwalkers” was to be released on March 30, 2007. When WAM contacted regional Lionsgate Filmed Enterainment publicsts, during the middle of March 2007, none had even heard of “Skinwalkers.”
Wild About Movies, given the go ahead by Lionsgate internal publicity, early in the month of July 2007, was told that “Skinwalkers” was going to be released on July 27, 2007.
But, it was not – and was pushed back, yet again to, presumably the official release date – since the latest poster of “Skinwalkers” (above), indicates such. In addition, the movie had originally been given an R-rating by the MPAA. Did the reason for the film’s delay in release have to do with extreme editing to allow the film a more tepid PG-13 rating, which it will be released with in theaters? (We’re sure the DVD of “Skinwalkers” will be released in an UNRATED version.) “Skinwalkers” is a horror action film about a 12-year-old boy who suddenly finds himself at the center of a battle between two warring groups of werewolves. One group of werewolves is sworn to protect him, the other group is trying to kill him — and the young boy’s mother has to find out why her son is at the center of the conflict before time runs out – “Skinwalkers.”
