Us Rating: ** 1/2

This fantastical new drama is a spooky update of the 1985 Michael J. Fox flick. Meet Scott (newcomer Tyler Posey), an awkward high school jock who, after getting attacked by a demonic creature, learns his hairy new fate: He's a werewolf with superpowers! Wolf provides eerie jolts, but sadly the characters, especially Scott's bullying coach, are cartoonish. And as the fanged hero, Posey has his charms but so far lacks bite. Fear not, though: 7th Heaven's Tyler Hoechlin (as Scott's mysterious mentor) and an upcoming twist make Wolf worth tracking. (MTV, 11 P.M.)
