Us Rating: **1/2

In this moody period horror movie -- a cross between Wuthering Heights and Twilight -- a Victorian damsel (Emily Blunt) learns that an unseen assailant has mauled her beloved. Werewolves? Natch! While slow, the atmospheric thriller is creepily engrossing -- even if Benicio Del Toro's pasty wolfman can't rival Taylor Lautner's hunky Jacob. (Universal, $30)
