Red (Day) brings her fianc� home, where he meets the family and learns about their business -- hunting werewolves. He's skeptical until bitten by a werewolf. When her family insists he must be killed, Red tries saving him. Red: Werewolf Hunter also stars Kavan Smith (Stargate Atlantis) and Stephen McHattie (Watchmen). Red: Werewolf Hunter is produced by Angela Mancuso and Vesuvius Productions in association with Chesler Perlmutter Productions.
